It’s unbelievable to think that as an adult I am still redefining what a best friend will look like. Over the years I have held to an idea that my best friend is the person I have grown up with over a number of years. Shared countless secrets and desires I want to achieve in my life. That person who will always have my back even in the stickiest situations. Someone who could understand me even if I don’t say a word. In the times of heartbreak and unhappiness they could motivate me and make me laugh. All this in one person that can totally get me.
All those things are important and needed. However I have realized that it’s not totally possible to find in one person. I have found that this is something that I have found in a few people. These people have dome all the above and much, much more. They have given me a who new outlook on how I care for someone and appreciate the good and bad times. Provided me with the opportunity to address characteristics in myself that have not always been the most received by others.
As I continue to grow and take note to those around me and individuals who state they care about me but present a different action. I have realized that these friends are more than best friends they are lifelong loves. I truly believe that these loves are in it for more than what they can receive from me. They care for me for me, they love me for me. All my goofy corks and intellectual thoughts. They have taken the time to see the person many may take for granted.
They appreciate the women I have grown to be. The wife I have taken great pride in being. The Christian I am proud to say I am without hesitation. The mother to my beautiful twins that bring me great pride and frustration at times. The pet owner to the best animals I have ever had over the years. The achieved owner of her private practice as a therapist. The fantastic daughter, sister, auntie, niece, cousin and in-law.
These wonderful best friends that I will truly love and care about till the end of time are my beautiful family. My husband that inspires me to achieve all I want to do in life. He motivates me to never give up on my dreams and gain the heist of the high. My best friend that will support me financially, emotionally, physically and spiritually. The best friends that I never knew I could love so much, my twin boys. The two men in my life I never knew I could love so much. The idea that they are not next to me just make me feel like I have lost my best friend. Taking pride in the idea that they love me even when I am having a bad day. They would come over and rub my back and fill my face with lovable kisses.
So when I am asked who are my best friends? First and foremost always my husband and second would be my twin mini best friends. I truly enjoy what I have been blessed with. The ups and the downs (and I am not perfect downs happen. However how you move past them that make the difference for me) the joys and the pains. I don’t take my life for granted and my best friends remind me every day how blessed I truly am.
