Best friends and all that...:)

Best friends. Who are they and where do they come from? I’m here today to tell you that I don’t believe that best friends come from god. Family comes from god, your spouse comes from god, children are gods gift as well. Relatives, far and near, these are all god’s presents. But friends are not. And most certainly best friends are not given by god. A best friend is a choice you make. A person that you trust enough to let into your life and whom you know would be there to pick up the pieces of your life even if all that’s left is nothing but dust. Okay, that might be a little too dramatic. So, let me lay it out in simple terms.
A best friend is someone that simply loves you for who you are. And that’s why there might be people in this world without a signifant other but there can never be a person without a friend. A best friend never judges, her or she puts up with your crap, big or small and just simply loves you. And no, its not easy to find such a person. But the thing is every one of us, have such a person in our life, its just that sometimes we don’t realize that they are special to us, til they are gone. And lonely is the soul without a best friend. No, it doesn’t mean that you need to know a person for years before they become your best friend. A best friend is conceived the moment a secret is shared and though the years may pull u apart, thoughts never will. And though you might meet tons of people in ur life, a best friend is just someone you may never forget despite the circumstances.
And so, you might be intrigued as to why im going on and on on the topic of best friends today, the answer is simple. I never had a best friend that stayed throughout the years. Sure, I can name you a few that were close to me at certain periods of my life. But the trick is that I have a habit of pushing peole away from my life whenever I hit rock bottom and the thing is no one bothered to break the walls that I put up. So, ya, I never had a best friend that stayed. I enjoy the company of many good friends but honestly, I have never been in such a relationship in which I felt so comfortable to speak out anything or to be totally crazy and not be judged for it. And in saying that, I should say this to, to all my close friends who are reading this, I am so thankful for the love you guys have given me throughout the years, and im sorry to whoever that I have pushed away. Trust me, the fault is mine.
So yes, I try building relationships with people, I try being there for them forever and just when I think everything is perfect, I just tend to lose them, even if I don’t want to push them away, they drift off. So ya, best friends are not god’s gift to us. Because if they were, they will never leave you would they? A best friend is someone you choose. And that’s omeone has to choose you back. Its kinda a romantic relationship, but it surpasses all that. This relationship is worth more than money, more than love and even more than GOD. And maybe that’s why I haven’t found such a person.
And to all of you that is reading this today, let me tell you this. Appreciate your best friend. Appreciate the person who has been there for you. Try not hurting them. Try wanting to be there back for them. And never ever let anyone or anything get in between ur relationship.
And after all that is said and done, trust me, all that I want is to go back to kindergarten in which the first person I saw, shook hands with me and told me, "Lets be best friends” . In today’s world I can honestly say that all of us need that. A random stranger to be our best friend! Because truth is, we all have been hurt a little too much, and we all hold secrets that we just wish no one would judge us for.
