I have known my best friends for 35 years of my almost 40 years of life. I can’t remember when we became friends. But they (2 of them) have always been part of my life. So, what do I do to deserve and maintain such good friends. Nothing, actually.
We just know each other inside out. We, being of the same age, been through all stages of lives together. If one of us is having a problem, we reach out to each other. We have sought each other when making life changing decisions. The best thing about having a best friend is that you can be yourself. You can be sure you will not be judged by the choices made by you. And you can tell your heart out and be sure that it will remain with the friend. And even if you don’t tell your heart out, the unsaid will be understood by your bestie.
Since then, we have all got married and got busy with our lives, our kids and families, but we still know that we are there for each other. I also did loose contact with them for some time but when I was going through a crisis, they traced my number and called me up. And the first thing they said was, ‘we know how you are feeling’, which was more than enough for me to cry my eyes out and spill out all my woes. I remember the lazy days we spent sharing our desires, loves, hopes, dreams, fears with each other.
And I thank God for giving me such lovely friends. Really, what would life be like if we don’t have a few best friends!
