The Best Friendships

Sometimes you meet a person and you immediately know you’re going to be friends for life.

Other times, it takes a bit longer to figure that out.

Regardless, the best friendships are those that bring out the best in you.

The best friends are those that love and respect you for who you are. Always. Regardless of your mess ups, your mistakes. They know you will become a better person because of them, that you will learn and grow from them.

They push you when they know you need it and pull you back only if they truly question whether a decision is in your best interest.

They’ll always be honest, even if the truth hurts…and they sometimes know what’s best for you before you can even see it yourself.

They’ll tell you when you have a piece of lettuce in your teeth and when you have toilet paper stuck to your shoe.

Your friendship is dependent on nothing but your mutual understanding that something just works well between you two…and you’d like to keep it that way.

You need each other only because you love each other. You draw strength from each other. And that’s enough.

Well, and then there’s the general fact that you always seem to end up having a blast when in each other’s company…

**Given that I graduate on Saturday, be prepared for a week filled with much sentiment and all the feels**

  1. Great post! Really, whether you instantly click with someone, or it takes a while to form a bond, friendship is friendship!

    And don’t be concerned about being overly sentimental about graduation. Bring on the nostalgia!

  2. Great post! I was literally talking to my best friend and roommate about this last night. We may fight, but we always go back to having great times afterwards. It’s not just a friendship, it’s a sisterhood.

  3. Aww Britta, this is beautiful!! I am 100% with you on this subject. I would like to add that best friends can talk about about everything or absolutely nothing for hours, are there for impromptu sleepovers, and know when to give each other space and when to drag them with you. ❤
