Friends are important! If you have some, that’s great! But BEST FRIENDS are a whole different level. You don’t have to be afraid that you’ll embarrass yourself, you never have to be polite, and you know that they’ll always be on your side even when you are obviously wrong. They may get you into some crazy situations and occasionally enjoy a laugh at your expense, but at the end of the day, they’ve got your back.
“Life is an awful, ugly place to not have a best friend.”~ Sarah Dessen
