Why You Need a Best Friend

Everyone needs a best friend in their life.

A best friend is someone you just genuinely love to be with because they make life better! In many ways your best friend is your other half. They’re “your” person.

Throughout my life I’ve been very blessed with having some incredible best friend relationships. I’ve always cherished my friends and (believe it or not) I’m still really close with some of my best friends from when I was in grade school! When you get older, you really start to realize just how special and rare best friend relationships are as an adult.

My best friend is Vera Sweeney.

Many of you know her because she’s also one of my business partners, too.

Vera and I met at a blogging conference 8 years ago and have been inseparable ever since! I always joke with her that we were meant to meet because we’re so close!

So why do you need a best friend?

You need a best friend because it’s wonderful to have someone to laugh with, cry with, joke with, vent with and just be with in life.

You need a best friend because you want someone who had your back in life.

You need a best friend because you it’s pretty amazing to have someone know everything about you… your faults, your strengths, your secrets and love you anyway.

You need a best friend because your husband doesn’t always want to be the one you vent/gossip to throughout the day!

You need a best friend to keep you sane and balanced.

You need a best friend that you can call at midnight, just to tell something to.

You need a best friend who loves you back just as much as you love them.

My husband will read this and laugh and say to me, “I thought I was your best friend!”

And he is, believe me.

But… there’s something very special about having a best friend in your life that’s another woman. She gets you and she knows you inside and out. It’s nice to have a girl in your life that you can just BE yourself with and do girly things!

I cherish my best friend because I know it’s rare as you get older to have a true best friend. Our lives get so busy and it’s tough to add anything else in, but I’ll tell you what… it’s something I truly need to the core!

Thank you best friend today for being there for you and loving you right on back!
