What is a best friend?

What a best friend really is depends on who you ask. A best friend is the most important person in your life. He or she is the first person you think about when making plans for what to do in the evening or a weekend. A best friend is the first to boast to when you experience a triumph, but also the first to cry to when tragedy strikes.

A best friend is there to pick you up when you’ve fallen, to encourage you when things get tough, and to tell you when you’re making a mistake. Such a person may validate your success, but will also critique your mistakes, not out of spite, but out of love. The best friend wants all that is best for you, even if sometimes you don’t recognize it yourself.

A best friend is the first to be there when you need to move heavy furniture. He or she can even be there when you need to move a body (especially a body.)

A best friend will stand between you and any danger, even to the extent of taking a bullet. This is not necessarily out of bravery. Seeing you fall would be more hurtful than taking the hurt him or herself.

The best thing, though, about a best friend is that he or she, just by being, makes you want to be a better person, the more to be worthy of that friendship. As the friend is willing to do for you, you are eager to do for the friend.

In short, a best friend is your other self, inseparable.
