MY BEST FRIEND...I found the greatest one

Well, I received another suggestion in my SUGGESTION BOX to write about my best friend.

Who is your best friend and why?

I would easily have to say that I am my best friend in the whole wide world. Now I do have a couple of really close ones that have been there through a lot of life's experiences and I cherish their friendship as much as any I've ever had. But I've found that the greatest love of all is the love of self. You can't love anyone very well if you don't know how to love yourself FIRST!

Now, let me clarify that although I consider myself to be the absolute center of my universe, I do not see myself as a selfISH person. But my past consists of a lot of hard times that as I remember, I had to face alone or suffer much ridicule and judgement from some of closest friends and relatives that I had at the time. I used to resent them for that, but I've come to appreciate the strength that I've drawn from facing those challenges alone.

So, now I refuse to let anyone in too close unless they have complete respect for the space that I enjoy with myself ALONE. I have built relationships that I appreciate much more since I have followed that design.

To answer the question WHY I am my best friend?
-Because I know how to love me best!
-I know what I want and consider it my responsibility to go after it.
-I am always constructively critical of myself, but never judge myself.
-I am always able to forgive myself for making poor choices.
-And mainly because I haven't found anyone else that does these things as well as I do or better!


How about you? Who is your best friend and why?

Where do you fit yourself in on your priority list of friends?

Do you have a lot of close friends or just one or a few?

How do your other friends feel about your best friend?

Never quite thought about it that way. If what you say is true and some of the criteria for loving others well, is loving yourself first, then I love myself more than I think I do...hmmmmmm

Who is your best friend and why?
My best friend is a co-worker (guy) who accepts me for who I am. Is non-judgemental and who will speak his mind to me honestly even if he knows it's not what I want to hear. And I do the same with him.
Where do you fit yourself in on your priority list of friends?
2nd
Do you have a lot of close friends or just one or a few?
A few that have remained constant over the years with one or two in the makeing.
How do your other friends feel about your best friend?
The only thing that matters is what I think about my best friend ans what he thinks about me.

I like mzhuny love myself more than I had before
I accept my good/bad decisions and considering them
learning experiences of life
Have 2-3 close friends and friendly family members
I'm basically shy
As for what others think of my best friend, I've never asked
and those who know me if they don't care for a particular pal
of mine, they are silent.

Don't worry, be Happy

I don't know that I consider any of them bad anymore. They all seem to lead to a better place from my perspective. Thanks for your comment!

I appreciate every word of your comment. As long as you are living a comfortable existence with that order, I suppose it is working for you. I agree that the true test of life is to be who we are without shame or regret and allow that which we desire to draw closer to us by virtue of our active intentionality.

I have 2 best friends that I hold dear.

Laila.. we met some 22 years ago right after her father past away. We sorta had the same boyfriend but when we figured it out.. we ditched him and remained friends. She is my son's godmother and she was there with me in that delivery room. Although she lives like 15 minutes away, we hardly see each other but we talk on the phone a lot. She is my confident.. I tell her everything.. and I do mean everything!!

Sylvie.. we met online thru a forum about 4 years ago. We used to chat online thru the forum and at times . We became really close the second year. She moved away to Sherbrooke (+/- 2 hours from Montreal). We rarely talk on the phone but I visit her every 2-3 months.

Odd that the one that lives the closest to me is the one I see the least but talk on the phone more and the one that lives the farthest we see each other more often but hardly talk on the phone!!!

Those are my real life best buddies!!

I got a few online ones but the list would be too long!!! lol
