Having a best friend is a privilege and one of life’s greatest gifts. True friends are rare and they should be cherished.
Throughout life, we get the chance to meet hundreds, maybe thousands of people in person. Nowadays, we can gather a list of 5000 “friends” on social media in no time. Some of them we get to know more personally and develop some pretty good relationships with, yet how many of them are truly our friends?
A lot of people claim that they have friends everywhere, and maybe they’re really that lucky, but most of us can count our real friends on one hand, and that list shortens with time. We might have a lot of people to hang around or party with, but they’re not the ones we rely on.
True friends are there through the best and the worst of times. They help us grow and when we do, they are genuinely happy for our successes. They lift us up when we’re feeling down, listen to our nonsense, and give us that figurative slap in the face before we make a terrible mistake.
True friends are like guardian angels — the family you choose — and time and distance will never harm the bond you share. Let your besties know they’re much appreciated!
