Best Friends

Friday, January 20, 2012
A best friend in my opinion is someone who has seen every single facet of your personality: the good, the bad and the ugly and still loves you and someone who you have shared one or several momentous events with.  I know that all sounds pretty vague and standard and sounds normal but every day I meet people who talk about every single friend as their best friend! It's so annoying.  The problem with that is as follows.  When every single one of your friends is a "best" friend, where is your loyalty? There is none.  For the most part you're just fickle and insecure.  I also find it's easy for those people to take sides and that's not cool.  I think friendships should be unbiased.  One of my friends and I were really good friends for a hot minute but every time someone new came into the picture I was in the back burner.  Friendship is not grown out of convenience it's because there are genuine caring feelings involved.  I'm not saying that you shouldn't have a lot of close friends, I'm just saying that the title of a best friend should be earned.  I think I have a lot of really good and close friends and maybe 3 best friends. Even the girls from Sex and the city had a best friend.  They were best friends as an entity but individually there was one person they each thought was their best friend.  Miranda's best friend was Carrie.  Samantha's best friend was Carrie.  Charlotte's best friends were Carrie and Anthony.  Carrie has referred to Samantha and Miranda as her best friends but never Charlotte.  See? and even if they were best friends there's only 4 of them not 20.  Also, how can you keep up with all your friendships if you have a ton.  A friendship to me is like any relationship you need to nurture it or else it can die.
