After a few rounds of playing phone tag, I finally had to the chance to catch up with a best friend tonight. As we gave each other updates about what we’ve been up to over the past couple of weeks, I regressed back to nights of hanging out together in her room at BU.
At times I’ve joked about how different the two of us are and how little we have in common regarding our interests. Yet we’ve usually been able to maintain a natural flow in conversation and appreciate each other’s company.
Within a friendship, there’s no better feeling than knowing you can be vulnerable with a friend and expect her to not judge you and that she’ll help you put you back in your place when you’ve gone too far. I’ve always valued this in our friendship.
Throughout the past three years, we’ve ridden the same roller coaster with some rocky twists and turns along the way, but we’ve always had each other’s back one way or another. Cheers to a great friend! 😀
