“Friendship isn’t about whom you have known the longest… It’s about who came, and never left your side”
The term Friends forever or BFFs, Besties, girl-friends, etc are often heard among girls today, be it kids, adolescents or even adults like us. But the question is do we really mean it.
Believe it or not, maximum percentage of women i know haven’t really continued with friends they would call their Besties at some point in time, and few of them don’t even know if they still exist. Well, then it isn’t something that bad because sometimes there are circumstances which lead to such awkward situations. Thus, your best friends as a kid or a teenager are often forgotten or just remain as someone you had known once upon a time.
All that said, at a certain point in life, we all find that one best friend (or more) who we fully trust and can completely rely on. Someone you can share your deep dark secrets with, someone you can act crazy with, someone you can shop, gossip, party, drink and dance with, and someone with whom you can be super happy or extremely sad. And this same person argues with you, fights with you, hates you at times but still never stops loving you.
It was in the third year of graduation, when we joined belly dancing classes together that we got the opportunity to know each other better. Although, we were friends since the ninth grade but it was only after 6 years of our friendship that we became the best of friends and our bond has grown only stronger ever since then. It has been almost ten years now and in all these years, we have seen the best and worst of each other. We fight on absolutely silly issues at times but make up even before we know it. We are more like family and i seriously doubt if there is anyone who knows one of us and does not know the other.
We have seen each other evolve from immature kids to sensible grown up individuals and yet we behave like little babies when together.
We’ll be friends forever…Won’t we? I said to her. And she replied, Even longer!!
Friendships last forever, only if you want them to last so keep your friends close and your best friends closer.
