Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams. Jennifer Lopez and Leah Remini. Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake. What do these people have in common (besides being extremely rich and famous)? They’re best friends, that’s what!

Life isn’t perfect, but having a good friend by your side makes the hard days a little bit easier. Your friends are there for you when you’re flying high and when you’re feeling low, your cheerleaders when you’re doing amazing and your therapists when you could be doing better, showing up and showing out for you no matter what. If you’ve got friends like mine, that can sometimes mean going to the extreme…like, create-a-fake-Instagram-profile to-do-stealthy-reconnaissance-on-a-guy-I-like extreme.

Best Friends Forever (BFF)
I have got a such an amazing, nice, adorable, beautiful, stunning, kind, helpful, awesome, incredible, brilliant, great, excellent, gorgeous, crazy, friendly, funny, lovely best friend. She likes studying, singing, knowing and learning about more and unbelievable new stuff like me. We have a lot in common but never share all of our likes and dislikes. We met in kindergarten and now we both are like thirteen 14 years old. Well, my name is Muskan and my best friend name is Marwa. We have been together like for 10 years. After that, I went to another country and left her, but I still sometimes go to meet her in summer vacation. The best thing between us is that we never ever did arguments. We had a lot of fun together and really enjoy spending time with each other. We always used to play together and do many other things together as like we were for each other. She has straight hair and I have wavy hair, but we both have dark brown eyes. My hair used to be long than hers but I cut mines so probably now we both have the same length of hair. Of course, we don’t fight but we used to stand up for each other. I am really lucky to had/have a friend like Marwa. Not Everybody gets their true best friend, who lived for each other forever. We studied together even if it was a test or an exam plus she always used to call me before and after ever paper or every exam of every subject. I miss her a lot and really want to be with her forever. Thanks. Love U Marwa + Miss U So Much…

CONSTANCE BANNISTER CORP/GETTY IMGESI grew up in a family that didn’t show affection. I knew I was loved, but it was rarely expressed, either in words or with a hug. Then, at the age of 40, I met Judy. I quickly noticed how often she told her kids she loved them and how she hugged everyone hello and goodbye. As with any habit, I picked it up, and the more I did so, the easier it became for me. Now I never fail to hug friends or family members, and it has completely changed how I relate to them. It’s an awesome feeling! Oh, I love you, Judy! Betty Plough, Traverse City, Michigan. These are little things that you can do to be a true friend.

Five months after my husband, my two-year-old daughter, and I moved 2,000 miles from home, I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl with severely clubbed feet. This marked the beginning of a long series of doctor appointments. Taking care of two young children, one of whom required constant medical attention, meant that I was always tired and behind on my household chores. One day, we came home from yet another doctor’s visit to find the front door ajar. I cautiously proceeded into the house, only to find the floors spotless, the dishes cleaned and dried, and the dirty laundry washed and folded. Upstairs, the beds were made, and there were even flowers in a vase beside my bed. It turns out that my friend Joy was driving by my home and noticed my car was gone, so she took the opportunity to help me out. I learned an important lesson that day about compassion. And this friendship was sealed for life! Judith Heicksen, Santa, Idaho

My fiancé walked out on me three days before our wedding. Now every year on the anniversary of the day I would have been married, my best friend texts me a hilarious (and completely inappropriate) picture, reminding me I dodged a bullet. His humor makes a hard day better. Jason Woods, via Twitter

Because we are all over the country, my three closest friends (Miranda, Rachel, and Johlandi) and I keep in touch via group texting. We share daily struggles, complaints, triumphs, and, most of all, laughs. These special ladies respond nonjudgmentally to whatever I tell them, allowing me to be as vulnerable as I please. Conversely, it’s a blessing to help them through their difficult times. Having such receptive friends has taught me that life is more fun and meaningful when I share myself with others. Lauren Young, Rockingham, Virginia. Try these ways to be a better friend.

After my wife of 44 years died, I didn’t feel the urge to socialize. But that didn’t stop my friend Tony from inviting me to join a group of guys who got together every Thursday for dinner. I told him I wasn’t ready. He called again the next week, and again I said no. He kept calling every week, and finally I said, “OK, I’ll go. Anything to keep you from calling me every week.” It has now been six years since my wife died, and thanks to Tony, I have been going to dinner every week with the gang we’ve dubbed ROMEO— Retired Old Men Eating Out. David Fenwick, Ocean Township, New Jersey

One night after teaching a late class, I found a sticky note on the window of my car. It read “You are beautiful inside and out” and featured a little heart. I never did find out which one of my friends left it for me, but it is still on my dashboard and means more than anything to me. Jennie Berglund, Burnsville, Minnesota

After seven years of teaching, I was let go before the school year ended. I was devastated. Making matters worse, some of the other teachers stopped talking to me. But one coworker stood by me, going so far as to ask the principal to let me work with her till the end of the school year. He reluctantly agreed. Continuing to work gave me back my dignity. I’m now at another job, where I am happy and confident. Beth Klementovic, Exton, Pennsylvania

Today is my birthday, and I know my friend Linda is making me a cake. Sometimes when you’re an adult, no one thinks to do that for you. Tamara Castellari, Parachute, Colorado

COURTESY LORRAINE MORROWIn my senior year of high school, my mother passed away. Dad, who lived in Seattle, wanted me to live with him. But my friend Joy invited me to stay with her and her father until I graduated. Joy’s mother had passed away a few years earlier, so Joy understood my terrible loss and depression. Because of her generosity, I was able to complete my last year of high school with all my friends, affording me a bit of normalcy. Lorraine Morrow, Bonney Lake, Washington

My best friend and I are both trying to lose weight, so we text each other every day to check in. He encourages me to work out when I don’t want to or to put down the ice cream. It really helps me stay on track. Rick Nelson, via Twitter

When I was pregnant, I felt—and acted—as if I had PMS for the entire nine months. My best friend, Laura, told me she was calling me every other day to make sure someone was still speaking to me. That is true friendship. Gail Bua, Nutley, New Jersey

Whenever I visited Ruth at the rest home, I’d always greet her with, “Good morning, sweetie.” She, in turn, would say, “Heeeyyyyyy! I’ve been missing you.” For as long as I knew Ruth, she greeted me with “I’ve been missing you,” even if I’d just seen her that morning. And when I’d leave, it was always, “Come back!” As if you need more of a reason to have friends, these facts prove that friends are healthy for us.

Ruth was my first friend in South Carolina. Our house was built on her property. I went over and introduced myself one day and told her that I’m out every morning and if she liked, I could bring her newspaper to her door. She said, “Well, I suppose that would be all right.” It wasn’t long after that I started bringing her the afternoon mail and cookies too. And soon I started taking her to the library, doctors, and the store.

At the rest home, if Ruth’s breakfast tray was ready, I’d pick it up. I knew how she liked her grits, with just a bit of butter and salt, and that she really, really liked orange juice and always got two glasses. After a bit, it would be time to go. She’d give me a kiss and tell me to “come back!”

I am ashamed to admit that at one time, both my grandmothers were in convalescent homes and I rarely visited them. I cannot change the person I was, but I can try to be a better person today. Ruth is no longer with us, but I wish to God that I could “come back” and visit with her again. Janet Alden, Inman, South Carolina

Lisa comes over, and we do each other’s nails while we lie in bed watching TV like high school girls. Shannon Hagen, Minneapolis, Minnesota

When I was nine, I had a friend with the unusual name of Westa Joy. I can still picture her wild, naturally curly hair; her porcelain skin; and her sparkling hazel eyes. I, on the other hand, was overweight and shy. We used to walk laughing and holding hands down a sandy dirt road in southeastern New Mexico. She would tell me the plot of the latest Nancy Drew book she was reading. I had never read a book, and I didn’t want to. Reading was much too difficult for me because I was dyslexic. But thanks to Westa’s storytelling, I eventually bought all the Nancy Drew books. Thank you, my dear childhood friend, for giving me the joy of reading. Essie Bowden, North Kingstown, Rhode Island

COURTESY MEGHAN SIMECEKI came down with a horrible stomach bug when my husband was out of town. My best friend showed up with saltines, Sprite, essential oils, and—the best part—her Netflix password. Meghan Simecek, Friendswood, Texas

Dawn, my friend and coworker at the public defender’s office, would bring me some of her dinner from the night before and leave it in the fridge at work when I was in the middle of a long trial. This way, I wouldn’t have to worry about feeding myself on late nights. Adrianne McMahon, Faribault, Minnesota

If she knows I’m having a rough day, my friend will show up and take my kids for the day. By just showing up instead of calling, Stacy knows I can’t tell her not to come. Courtney Clements, Nampa, Idaho

I met Mary Lou 14 years ago, while tending the grave of my 34-year-old son Kevin just weeks after he passed. Mary Lou was visiting her son Gary. She smiled, and soon we were sharing our stories—not only about our sons but about life in general. On my next visit with Kevin, I saw a piece of paper sticking out from under a rock—an inspirational note from Mary Lou. I wrote her back and put my note under the same rock. A week later, I returned to find another note from Mary Lou. We went back and forth like this for years. Today, we still see each other, but usually over a hot fudge sundae. We talk and laugh and rarely feel the need to discuss our deep pain. That’s why we are friends for life. Patricia Coler-Dark, Concord, California

Shannon, my best friend of over 26 years, and I text each other every morning with “Good morning, beautiful!” or “Hello, gorgeous!” That way, we both start the day with a smile. Katrina La Force, Petaluma, California

When I was four, my mother had her hands full with six children. Luckily, there was our neighbor Berla. Berla, 48, had no children, so I had her full attention. She taught me simple things, like how to care for my teeth, as well as big things, like a love of long walks. She also taught me to play cribbage, which came with these words of advice: “There is a perfect strategy for every hand dealt.” That concept has impacted every aspect of my life. Linda Sealock, Reno, Nevada

My best friend in college taught me spontaneity. One day Christie persuaded me to run around campus dressed in battle armor and wielding a cardboard sword, all while laughing maniacally. People stared at us, but we had too much fun to care. Caroline Samuels, Logan, Utah

I was having a horrible day dealing with job and divorce stress, and my friend Anna brought me ice cream. Just having her show up to listen to me whine was exactly what I needed. Tracy Clark, Lakeville, Minnesota. If you want to show your friend how much they mean to you, get them one of these best friend gifts.

Having a Best Friend

A story tells that two friends were walking through the desert. During some point of the journey, they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face.

The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the sand “Today my best friend slapped me in the face”.

They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath. The one who had been slapped got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but the friend saved him. After he recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone “Today my best friend saved my life”.

The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him, “After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write on a stone, why?” The other friend replied “When someone hurts us we should write it down in the sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase it.”

Moral: Do not value the things you have in your life. But value who you have in your life.

Short Stories

Family is not everything in life. There are always some secrets that you cannot tell them. This is where best friends come. They are always the ones to support you when your family cannot. I have one. She is named Akemi Tsuki and she is the best friend I could ever ask for.

She is a very stubborn girl with different personalities. She has half-long, silky black hair that is always tied up in a ponytail with a lock of hair framing her cute round face. Her dark brown doe eyes always carry a glint of mischievousness. We would be considered sisters if not the difference in the skin tone and facial structures. Some people even assumed that we are related since we are always seen together.

There is another thing that differentiates us. It is our personalities. In class, she is the stoic emo one while I am the attentive hardworking student. At home, she is the laid back one whereas I’m the nerd. Sometimes she is childish when I’m mature and rest of times it is the other way round.
Albeit we are so different, when we are together, we are the known as the two goofballs.

Our likes and dislikes also differ. For example, she despise fruits and vegetables while I am vegetarian. However the thing that brought us together is our love for drawing and watching Japanese cartoons but still our opinion about some characters is different. She always says I have a weird taste in characters and I think that the characters she admires are either too serious or too excited.

I met Akemi when I was 11. At that time we were just acquaintance. Then one day, I ran into her in a library. This was where our friendship sparked. The other thing that brought us even closer is our passion for drawing. We kept separate diaries and everyday we would draw while waiting for our parents. This lasted till we were 14.

At that time, we eventually stopped drawing regularly. Later, we were introduced to Japanese cartoons by another friends. Then we would spend our time talking about it. During holidays, we would chat on the phone for hours. We spent very happy moments together. Now we have got separated since she chose Economics while I am the technical side, but we still meet during breaks and in the bus. It was quite painful at first, however we stuck together.

Though Tsuki and I are polar opposites, we get along very well, like two peas in a pod. I cannot imagine my school life without her. She is like a missing part of my life. We went through every kind of obstacle hand in hand, failures, punishments, detentions, extra-works… We may be slowly drifting apart because our decision in life, but I am sure that we are not letting each other go anytime soon. I can ask for no more and I am planning to preserve this precious friendship forever.

Side note:
Hey V! This short story is dedicated to you. It’s been 4 years, 6 month and 3 days since our friendship formed. I don’t know if ever you get the story for we don’t know each other’s secret Wattpad identity but I know if ever you’ll read that you’ll immediately know it’s me. I just wanted to say thank you for your amazing friendship and I cherish the moments we spent together. I sincerely truly love you from the bottom of my heart and I could never ask for a better friend.
