What would you do without them?
Having friends in life is important, trust me. They can be someone to text when the newest Zac Efron movie has just hit theaters, they’re perfect for trying out the newest bar on a night out (and if the bar ends up sucking, you and your friend will still find a way to make the night a success).
Work friends are a smart idea to have. Maybe they can cover for you when you need to dodge out of the office for whatever reason. Also, they keep you sane and laughing when your job just seems to get to be too much at times. There’s no one else you’d rather hit up to complain about how unreasonable your boss is being.
Family friends and cousins are cool, too, because they were probably your first friends. You probably grew up together and celebrated many milestones and holidays together. Of course, this means tons of memories you get to reminisce about when you reunite, and that is always a fun time. And you can’t hide your awkward pasts from each other because you knew each other during the bangs and the braces!
Yes, friends in life are a good thing, but best friends are a necessity. You need to have a best friend (or multiple, if you’re super lucky) to be able to make it through life without going absolutely insane.
A best friend will text you about seeing the newest animated movie targeted towards toddlers because she knows you want to see it ( even if you’re a bit too embarrassed to admit it).
You can go to your best friend about your work issues because, after all, you’ve told her so much about your job it’s practically like she works there, too. Also, you can complain to her about your boss and your work friend when they both seem to think they’re better than you.
And while your best friend may not have been around during all of your awkward phases, there is no hiding it from them because they know everything about you, the good and the bad.
They’ve been there through some of the toughest challenges you have faced, and you are pretty confident if you hadn’t gone through it with them by your side you would not have made it through. You know you’ll be keeping them as your friend for life.
Sometimes, we may forget all that they do for us and may not give them enough credit for putting up with everything we throw their way. But they have always been there and they have never let us down.
Maybe you’ve lost sight of that, but these 21 quotes will remind you that you have the most amazing friend in the world. They will help get your thoughts and appreciation towards your best friends right on track. So, pick and send a quote to them out of the blue, or choose one of these for your next Instagram caption. No matter how you will choose to show your appreciation, these quotes will do the trick.
