Best Friend

What is a friend? Or the difference between a friend, and a good friend, or even a best friend? So close to you they are like family. How should this relationship be? During my experiences I have seen many people jump in and out of each category of friend. Some seem to understand it all at first, and then slowly fall away. There are certain ones however. Ones that know that some days you might be a little more emotional. Some days you might be extra distant. This many go on for weeks – barely any communication with one another. But that doesn’t matter to them. They are able to put their ego aside and have empathy. They are your voice when you are not able to speak. They display true friendship even when you are unable to witness it. THESE people are what it means to be a true friend. I hope everyone can find it within themselves to be this person every day. To think of others before themselves. To have understanding and compassion. It’s really not hard.

One thought on “Best Friend

  1. One of my best friends from school, we live thousands of miles apart and see each other once a year at most. We don’t even talk all that often in between. But she knew my treatment schedule and texted or emailed.or called me after every single one. She messaged me every Friday ‘another week down!’. Not even my parents or sisters did that and it meant the world.
