best friends

In life we will have a lot of people that will come in an out of our lives. Some people are in for a short period of time, and others stay a long time. Some are friends, and some are just people who pass by. Growing up we feel the pressure to have lots of friends, and mistakenly call a lot of them "best friends"... we all do it.

So... The big question: what makes a friend a best friend?

I honestly do not think it matters whether or not you have been friends for 10 years or for 2 weeks.

Someone who will have your back, even when maaaybe you don't deserve it.

Someone who doesn't give up on you when you might give up on yourself.

A best friend is someone who knows when you are hurting without even having to ask.

Someone that understands you, when the rest of the world is saying "huh"?

A best friend is someone who listens to your side of the story, and is not influenced by what other people are saying.

Someone who you can be completely yourself around, even if that is completely ridiculous and outrageous.

A best friend is someone who doesn't walk out on you just because others are.

A best friend is really hard to find.

But the thing with best friends is that once you have them, they will never leave.

Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is
someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.
