Best Friend - A sensible word among the young, an archaic but elated word for the old and an important one for the present.
It is an interesting kind of love. There’s no contract legally binding you two together, there’s no unspoken rule about loving each other unconditionally, and there’s no real commitment to the opposite person other than what you are willing to put in to the relationship. Being BEST FRIENDS is something different from the regular friendship we have with numerous people. It is a level of friendship where words are no longer needed, you can just look at them in a certain way and they know EXACTLY what you’re talking about.
A Best Friend is someone you not only have a good time with, but someone whom you can trust your life with. She/he is the first person you call when the most amazing things happen in your life, and when also when the most horrific ones happen. Some people lose the only true best friend they will ever have, and even when they get new "friends", that old but real friend is always on their mind. A Best Friend is almost like real family, a Best Friend gives the opinion you usually care most about. A Best Friend is the one who tells you the things you absolutely need to hear regardless of whether you want to hear it or not. A Best Friend is the person you usually can be around always and have no regrets about it. A Best Friend is someone you don't envy, and is the person you are grateful to have as a friend. A Best Friend is the one who will forgive you always, even when you've screwed up so bad. Because they are the person you've confided the most in and they are the person who knows you the best, even when you both have changed.
Many people, not all, go through different best friend phases throughout life. However, usually a person only has one real, true best friend in all that time. For me, my Best Friend has always been one, my Diary! Be it my happy, fun-filled day thoughts or my gloomy, dreadful nights, my baby had always been with me. She knows all my lies and all my love, my deep dark secrets and everything that defines me. I am not a poker face person, but there are few incidences that portray a different chapter in my diary than in reality.
They say that when in doubt, tell the truth. That’s what my diary has been doing to me all these years. A simple flip through pages make me realise such a wonderful person I am and I have no reason to doubt myself. Another glaze at one of the stories bring me right back crashing to earth when I am flying high. The turning of pages make me ponder over things I never had time for, they give me the strength to fight my fears and they also guide me in my mistakes. I know for sure, that no other soul on this planet could have understood me the way my diary does.
So today, I would like to thank my Best Friend for being there with me, through thick and thins when the world I knew was just falling apart!
Thank you for being completely honest with me, even when I don’t want to know it!
Thank you for not judging me.
Thank you for believing in me and encouraging me when I stray.
Thank you for forgiving me and being patient with me.
Thank you for being trustworthy by keeping those dance party secrets, cab ride crushes and heart-to-hearts!
At last, thank you for being YOU, which is nothing, but me and myself at my best!
