Someone said "Happiness is being married to your best friend" - 100% true in my case. My best friend - my partner in life..there are just so many instances negligible and large when we have changed for the better that it's impossible to lay down one as a good example..I'd write page upon page or rather not try to describe any at all - only relish the harmonious outcome of our efforts!
Yes, I met her on the school bus when we were 7. She has taught me that perseverance and hard work brings results, and that having a strong and good heart along the way helps make the journey easier :) She is a very kind and caring person.
Yeah I do and it is my partner. He changed my life by giving me permission to be me, unconditional support in the following of my dreams and believing in me when I let my fear get in the way of me believing in me.
My best friend, or at least that is what we would call each other when we were children, and I have recently drifted apart due to silly misunderstandings and are trying to reconnect. That being said, we have been friends since time immemorial...that translates to from the ages of four and five. She has never passed judgement on me. I will always be grateful for that.
I sometimes think that it is harder to make longer term friends these days - especially someone you would call a "best" friend. People are always on the move between jobs, cities etc. Like you, we have many friends we socialise with but many of these are people we've met just in the past few years. Therefore my "bestie" would definitely be my hubby.
I have a best friend, she may not know she stands out from the rest. She is my best friend because no matter how long it is between us speaking or meeting we are immediately on the same wavelength, there is an empathy and respect there that I do not feel with any other friend, and when I am in the tightest spot, when I feel at my weakest and most vunerable, when I am crying on my pillow at night when my partner and children cannot hear or see me, I channel the strength of character of my best friend to raise my spirits and get me through the toughest times.......she looks up to me but does not know how much I look up to her and draw strength from her character.........
Same thing happened to me. My partner of 20 years, and my 'bestie' of 20 years decided to get it together in my house when I was asleep. Still to give them credit - 10 years later they are still together!!!!! It was probably the best thing either of them could have done for me.
My husband of over 40 years. We have fought and argued since the minute we met but we are extremely close and I know he would fight for me til the death. Corny isn't it
Not sure if I would fight for him but I would sure be very protective - but I'd also prefer he didm;t know that !
Yes, I have a wonderful best friend. She is kind and caring and a great listener. We have so much in common. We spend a lot of time together. We both had withdrawal symptoms when she went home to Ireland for a few months !!!!
