True friends are hard to come by. It is something I have spent a lifetime struggling and working with. But I do have some friends; great friends actually. You guys all know who you are and I love every one of you.
But that being said I have two best friends. We’ve known each other the longest and been through the most. I met them both of them at a party when I was 17. I’m not entirely sure what drew us to each other, because I was being highly inappropriate, rebellious, and crazy. They were what I would have deemed as “good girls”. I don’t mean that as mocking either. But I was/am the total opposite. But they’ve gotten to be a bit like me so I swear I’ve created monsters. Their mothers would have never allowed us to play as children.
We have been through a lot over the years. Guys, heartbreak, tragedy, tears, anger, fights, and pyramids full of laughter and fun. We worked in the same place before (strangely we were rarely scheduled together. Hmm wonder why) and we’ve gone on trips together. I have wanted to strangle them and of course I’d kill and hide a body for them. They would do the same, just as any best friend would. We drive each other crazy like no other.
The three of us talk nearly every day, even though we are all super busy. It’s just what you do when you’re best friends with someone, you put in an effort. Though I still want to smash the radio anytime they have their favorite music on. Sorry not sorry.
Do you have a best friend(s)? What makes them special?
