I feel the word, or two words if you would like to refer it, is another overused meaningless word. I feel that young people in society like to refer to someone as their “best friend” for the sake of thinking they have a friend that is that close to them. I used to think I had a best friend, but not so much anymore. A best friend to me, is someone who you can share everything with. Someone who you can tell all your secrets to and you just know they will keep it, no doubt in your mind. Someone who won’t judge you. Someone who will always be there for you. I reflect back on my friends and the experiences we have shared, but I see no “best friend” there; just many close friends. I think for a best friend relationship to develop, there must be mutual understanding. I don’t believe a best friend relationship can form in a matter of few years, but over very many years, which you have been able to develop a strong base through hard and good times. I just hope one day I will find someone like that, someone who will make me understand what it means to truly have a best friend.
