Friendships are Hard, But They’re Worth it

For most people, we all have one best friend, whether they’re with you or not. For me, my best friend has always been the same person. And we rarely talk any more. Her name is Jessica, I knew her from my church, but we didn’t see each other that often because her family had to leave the church. Her dad was the youth pastor at the time and thought he had a better offer so took it. It was a scam and when he came back, our church had already found a new youth minister. I sometimes wonder today what our lives would have been like if that didn’t happen. But it did and for a while (even though I was oblivious to it) her family was struggling. Struggling to find her dad a job. Eventually they had to pack up and are now living in Colorado. But even though I haven’t seen her in 3 years, she’s still my best friend. Why? Well let me tell you what a best friend is, they are someone with whom one shares the strongest possible kind of friendship. Your best friend should be somebody that you can trust one hundred percent. You should be able to confide in them knowing that they will not spread your news to other people. And she was. But what is the actual definition of ‘best friend’? According to Urban Dictionary, ‘Best Friends are very special people in your life.They are the first people you think about when you make plans. They are the first people you go to when you need someone to talk to. You will phone them up just to talk about nothing, or the most important things in your life. When sad they will try their hardest to cheer you up.They give the best hugs in the world! They are the shoulder to cry on, because you know that they truly care about you. In most cases they would take a bullet for you, because it would be too painful to watch you get hurt.’. Now, this sounds like what it was like and still is for me and Jessica, but is it really? When we were little I used to go over to her house about 1 time every 2 to 3 months. Other than that, we were pen pal’s and we called each other. But was I really acting like a real friend? I’m not sure. Looking back on those days, I wish I had had better effort when we were little. I didn’t know that she would be gone all of a sudden, so I didn’t have the fear of losing her. But she did move, and I did loose her. So my tip for you is, when you have a good relationship with someone who helps you become a better person, don’t leave it how it is, make it better so that you won’t have later regrets about it.
