“Your best friend always sticking up for you/Even when I know you're wrong” – Train, “Drops of Jupiter”
My best friend and I met in our freshman year of college. In the decades that we’ve been friends, we’ve never had a fight or falling out. We argue all of the time, but they’re fun arguments. For example, he’s been trying for years to convince me that Westerns are not a genre, but a location, and I’ve been trying to convince him that “comic book movie” isn’t an accurate description because they fall into so many different genres. (This is what happens when geeks go camping somewhere with no internet access.) We’re similar enough to really enjoy each other’s company, but different enough to keep surprising and challenging the other.
Friends are family that you get to pick for yourself, and sometimes they become closer than actual blood relatives. They’re the ones that see you at your worst and don’t run away. Everybody should have at least one close friend.
July 30 is the International Day of Friendship, so if you have a friend that keeps you grounded, makes you laugh, and/or just generally helps you to be a better person, let them know. A new coffee mug for your friend is a great gift!
Yes, friendship necklaces and bracelets have their place, but matching BFF mugs are much more practical.
2. That’s the Job
Both reactions are necessary in a best friend.
Of course, a true friend would never use what they know against you.
In some ways, your friendship is closer than your romantic relationships. Who else are you going to complain about your SO to?
5. Sure, Why Not?
As the quote goes: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did.”
