What Is A “Best Friend?”

“A friend is a gift you give yourself.” — Robert Louis Stevenson

To give you an idea of what my best friend means to me, Daring Dreamer’s blurb begins with the phrase: Best friends.

Is having a best friend the best thing you could have?

I believe the answer is yes!

I met my best friend thirty-three years ago. At the time I had no idea she would become my best friend thirteen years later.

My best friend knows me as well as or better than I know myself. Do we both have other close friends? Yes. But if someone asked me for the last twenty years who my “best friend” was, she’d fulfill that title.

My best friend has known every bad decision I’ve made in my life and continued to accept me for who I am. I know she’ll be there for me on my worst days and my best days.

She’s been a sister, mentor, mother figure, and a times — broken my heart when I was misguided.

My best friend tells me the truth when I refuse to see it, but truly never leaves me because we are connected by the strongest bond ever.

Weeks or months can go by without seeing each other, but as long as I know where to find her or that she’s merely a text or phone call away, we’re more than good.

Best friends don’t judge or shame one another. It’s just us struggling through hardships together or celebrating successes.

They say that love is endless, but I would argue a true best friend characterizes love and outshines any other relationship.

Unlike some people, I believe a best friend can be your sister, brother, daughter, mom, dad, or any other family member.

So, to my best friend, my sunshine on a cloudy day, my light at the end of the tunnel, the one person I can share my dreams and secrets with, I love you, now and always. Bust most importantly, I know you feel the same.

After all, isn’t that the definition of “best friends?”
