#7 Find a Best Friend Who Has Your Back For Life

One of the best gifts that I have in this life is a best friend (other than my spouse) who has shared almost every significant moment with me. From elementary playground drama, to high school graduation. From my wedding day, to being there to hold you the day after you were born. My best friend has always, always, always, had my back.

We didn’t always get along–and even now we still disagree on some things–but we always love each other. A best friend is that person who can laugh with you, cry with you, and tell you when you need to just plain suck it up. Your best friend is the person you will complain to about me when your grounded (and most likely they are too) and who you plot revenge with when some guy leaves you crying.

I guess this isn’t really advice, but more a wish, a desire, for you to have the same amazing friendship I have had the chance to experience.

“The friends who grew up with you deserve a special respect. The ones who stuck by you shoulder to shoulder, in a time where nothing was certain, all life lays ahead, and every road led home” – The Wonder Years
