Words don’t need to be spoken, you simply look at each other and know what the other is thinking.
A best friend. Someone who just gets you. You just get them.
I’ve been someone who throughout the years has had trouble making friends, but has kept best friends near and dear to me since I was born. Once we’ve gotten to a certain point we loose any kind of affiliation with other and become family.
Growing up I never lived in the same place more than 5 years and I still haven’t been settled anywhere for more than that still. The one constant has been my best friends. I have been lucky enough to add to this list as I have moved from city to city. I have “made new friends but kept the old; however, one is not silver and the other gold. What’s even more of a blessing is that as I have ventured into unknown territory my best friends have become best friends or at least friends.
Knowing that you always have someone to throw ideas at, go to in times of need and just because creates a comfort, an ease, a love. A best friend will be real with you, but never judge you. They look at you with shade, but have love in their heart. Support you, stand up for you, be unconditional in all capacities.
I am someone that clearly enjoys love, and the unconditional love I’ve gotten from my best friends is something that I don’t think I would’ve made it to today without. I know my loves know this, but it never feels like it’s said enough.
I try to make an effort to let the ones I love know how much I truly love them. In times of busyness it gets hard to really let these people know how much they mean to you. I am not lucky enough to afford downtime. I don’t have the ability to go to someone when money is low and ask for help, so I must be on always. I must constantly be on my hustle. I worry that this is misconstrued or misunderstood. I hope not. I’d rather be with them.
I live for the day when I get to repay my best friends for all they have given me. Countless amount of support, love and perspective.
