What are best friends?

According to Urban DictionaryBest 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 you’re 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, coz it would be too painful to watch you get hurt.”

I remember when I was experiencing a bad day; I would go straight to my best friend’s doorstep and be with her to ease my mood no matter what time it was. We’d talk for hours about anything and everything. In other occasions, she would call me to meet up for dinner and spend time talking about her love life. We have always been there for each other. However, life has to move on... I got married and I have to move to a different country.  Now that we are miles apart, we still communicate through social websites and phone calls.  

It is easy to find a friend; you can find them on the streets, in a mall, at a coffee shop, or even inside a beauty salon but REMEMBER: real friends are like treasures, they are hard to find. It takes time...a lot of time... to be able to build the bond and trust. These are the important ingredients of a good friendship. Once you built that strong connection, you have to be able to trust each other despite any circumstance that may occur. Of course, there will be times when your friendship will be tested. There will be arguments and fights but these are just trials. In the end, genuine friendship will last.
