Being vulnerable is difficult, but you would think that if you could be honest and open with anyone, it would be your best friends, right? Wrong. You have this unspoken bond where you know that you love one another but you don’t have to say it unless you’re drunk. When you’re sober, we have tweets…and memes!
You Have To Support Each Other No Matter What
We all need some friends who are going support us no matter what we do, even if what we do is kind of questionable…as long as we keep the murder hypothetical.
This Is A Really Fair Point
They do say that we tend to hang out with people that we find attractive. It makes sense that we would want to be surrounded by people we think are the best of the best.
Sometimes Things Get A Little Mushy
OK, there are obviously going to be moments when things get a little bit mushy and you can’t help but go on and on about how wonderful your friends are as humans.
It’s A Beautiful Thing Watching People Grow
When you’re friends with someone for a long time, or a while at least, you get to see them grow and learn and accomplish their dreams, and there is something really cool about that.
You Always Have To Wait
If you don’t demand that your friends tell you when they get home safely or stop and watch them go back into the house, are you even friends? This is the dedication that we need.
It’s Fun Being Evil Together
What are best friends if not a great partner in crime? Who else is going to support you when you make terrible decisions and never say “I told you so”?
No One Is Crazy, OK?
Sometimes being close with someone stops you from seeing how insane some people really are. Just kidding, we know what we’re getting into and we are here for it. If you’re crazy, I’m crazy.
We All Make Mistakes Sometimes
We have to accept that our friends aren’t perfect and they’re going to make decisions that we find questionable, but you know what? We can’t judge them for that, even if it means they don’t like Britney.
Embarrassment Is Like Glue
Doing things in front of your friends that you find embarrassing is like the glue that is going to keep that friendship alive. Eventually, they know too much and then you’re stuck together.
Fights Can Be Tricky
When we have fights with our friends, it’s hard being mad at one another. It’s even harder to be mad when they’re acting ridiculous and you have to stifle your laughter.
You All Share A Brain
You need to get everyone’s opinion about texts, men, ideas, emails, DMs—you name it—before you can make a real decision about anything in your life. The group chat knows all.
Leave It To Us, OK?
No one has better internet sleuthing skills than your friends who are trying to find someone you want to stalk online. How do we do it? I don’t even know.
Who Needs Men When You Have Friends?
When I look at my phone and I’m smiling, don’t even ask me who is making me smile like that because it always has been and always will be how funny me and my friends are.
Having Someone Who Knows You Is The Best
You know that you’ve made it in the friendship world when you have someone who can literally read your mind. It’s spooky when it happens, but you’re here for it.
Sometimes Tough Love Is The Way
When you’re getting to know someone, you want to be as gentle as possible to win them over, but there comes a time when you save your meanness for the people closest to you. That’s when you know you’ve made it.
Nothing Is Going To Bring You Closer
There is nothing in the world that is going to bond two people closer together than hating the same things. It’s how workplace relationships are made, it’s how we become friends with our ex’s exes!
It’s Nice To Know Someone Is Thinking Of You
Is it just me or is getting a meme from someone with the message “this made me think of you” one of the most flattering and amazing acts of friendship ever?
You Never Know What You Might Need
Getting ready at your friend’s place is all fun and games until you have to eventually lug that all back to your place when you’re hungover and just want to nap.
They’re Always The Best Laughs
Those laughing fits that you get into with your friends when you find something ridiculous are the best. It’s always the dumbest things that set you off, too. Like something so dumb.
It’s A Fine Balance
At the end of the day, you need people who are going to call you out when you need to be called out, but they also need to be people who are going to support you when you’re being your true self, even if that person is a little petty sometimes.
