Best friends are the ones who know exactly who you are. You don’t have to put a filter on your face or mouth to talk to them, you just let it be. Best friends have the key to all your secrets. They know every single thing and yet don’t judge you. They have seen you in your ups, cheering and in your downs, back for you. They know how you can be a complete mess and can keep ranting non-stop about one little thing that is bothering you. They are there for all of it, listening to you patiently and slapping too (if needed). How much do you really know about your best friend? Here are Things You Should Know About Your Best Friend.
Things You Should Know About Your Best Friend
They know how much you love them, you don’t have to tell
Your best friend knows how many wonderful moments you spend with each other, having shared so many incredible memories that it goes without saying that they truly know how important they are for you. Sometimes you might not be able to tell them how unconditionally you love them, but there might not even be a need for it. Your best friend already knows. There is this deep connection between the two of you that you both know that you will continue to paint the town red and share the most incredible experiences in the future. No matter what happens.
They know exactly how to lighten up your mood
Sometimes it feels as if a truly grim situation starts to brighten up magically once you’ve told your best friend about it. They will almost always be able to show you a much better perspective of things. Even more importantly, your best friend seems to be extraordinarily gifted at showing you how you can overcome whatever that is bothering you. And all of a sudden, things do no longer appear as miserable as they seemed in the first place.
But whenever words are not enough, they will lighten up your mood simply by being there for you. In fact, just being around someone who truly knows you inside and out gets you into a much better mood within an instant. No words are necessary.
They know how strange your family can be
Even though you love each member of your family, they seem to have a knack for being able to embarrass you in front of your friends. What is worse, you might be able to shield the really strange aspects of your family members from most of your friends, but not your best friend. Most likely, your best friend has already met that aunt of yours that cannot help but give out poisoned complements with everything she says, even to entire strangers. Or that lovely cousin of yours who is keen on convincing the world with scientific evidence that Dracula still exists. But even though your best friend knows a great deal about your family, they seem to like your family for who they truly are.
They know your most intimate secrets
Even though we all spend half our lifetime with coworkers, fellow students, classmates, mentors and many other acquaintances, we do not allow these people to get to know our secrets. In most cases, we do this because we know exactly that our precious secrets are not really safe with any of these people. We do like them, we do hold them in the highest esteem, but we would never entrust them with a secret that is too personal. Maybe it’s because we understand that they would immediately hand out all our secrets if there’s something to be gained from it.
Your best friend knows to appreciate your successes
Succeeding at something can be truly wonderful, especially when you’re surrounded by people who truly appreciate what you’ve managed to accomplish. It simply feels great when you’re able to share your successes with family and friends who are happy for you. At the same time, however, noticing that someone whom you considered a friend is feeling hateful envy at your accomplishments is not such a great experience. These are the kind of “friends” who would rather keep you down so that they can shine much brighter than you.
