Everyone has a friend.
Whether you believe that or not, someone cares about you and your well-being. However, it’s not so easy to get along with someone so much that you call them your best friend. People have different perceptions of what they want their best friend relationship to be. My mother always says she married hers, others may disagree. For me, a best friend is more than someone who you talk to everyday and share common interests with, a best friend is someone who you can whole-heartedly trust with every bone in your body and can tell anything too.
Someone who doesn’t care when you smell like a dog because you haven’t showered in about 4 days, someone who loves it when you finally have that one date with that guy you’ve liked FOREVER! Someone who doesn’t judge you when you tell them you’re deepest secrets and someone who is just genuinely amazing in every single way.
I have the privilege to say I have a best friend.
Nothings ever easy alone but with someone by your side you can conquer the world, I’ve known my best friend a while, by that I mean 9 years. She is one of the most genuinely beautiful people I have ever met – inside and out. In all of the years I’ve known her she’s never actually heard me talk about how amazing I think she is. So I guess this post is dedicated to her.
Ever since we met ( when we were 8 ) we’ve had this unbreakable connection, that meant no matter how much we drifted apart through the years, we slowly ended up back where we started. It’s not always easy opening up to someone completely and for many years I couldn’t open up to her, but I learnt that telling her something wasn’t just like telling a friend. It was like having a secret diary but instead of being able to close that diary after I’d wrote in it, she’d pester me until I told her more and when I’d finish, she’d hug me and make sure I was okay.
Some days, I wonder how I’ve put up with her for so long (and I don’t doubt she thinks the same of me), but other days I know that if it came to it, I would – without a doubt – give my life for that girl. We’ve laughed, cried, smiled, rolled around in a fit of giggles, argued, and at one point faced the end of our friendship. But I will tell you one thing, without her I don’t know what I’d do.
People have often tried to come between us, with their malicious ways and fake friendships, sometimes I’ll admit, it’s worked.
However, we pulled through and have become closer. It’s that sort of friendship were you’re both at a family party and you have to ask your family members if they’ve seen her and it turns out she’s having a gossip with your auntie and dad in the kitchen.
She’s supportive of everything I do, and I have never met anyone like her.
So, my message today is to appreciate everyone and everything you have. Even if they aren’t with you right now, even if you’re currently ignoring them for no good reason, even if they have done something they know is wrong, they need you. Without them you wouldn’t be you and without you they wouldn’t be them.
I hope with all of my heart you have a best friend like mine because if you don’t you are missing out.
If you have a best friend, make sure they know how much you love them, you never know what’s going on inside their head. It could save their life. And having them as your best friend could save yours.
Abi, words cannot describe how much I love you. We have been through so much together and we still have a long way to go…
