‘Best’ Friends

To me, a best friend is a person with whom we don’t have a problem being honest or vulnerable. It’s someone who will never desert you, who keeps no record of wrongs, who doesn’t spare your feelings or avoid telling you what you need to hear. I have two best friends. One is Ken, whom I met in the military. Our having gone through difficult experiences has bonded us for life. The other is Amanda. We love having long conversations that can wander everywhere and nowhere. Sometimes we talk for hours- We both love being listened to. Other times we like being together without saying much of anything. I would have a hard time living without my two best friends, but it’s important to have the others, too.
