Best-friend might seem like two small words but they have a very deep meaning attached to it. What according to you best friends are like? Those with whom you share stuff (from clothes to novels, jokes to problems), those with whom you party, those who know you more than your family or anyone else? It can mean totally different things for different people or you can say a best friend is the one who stands by you even when the whole world is against you, who supports your decisions when you are right and is the first one to correct you when you are not and they never abandon you in tough times. But do you really need a best friend? Yes, you do. Let’s see why.

There is always a sense of comfort while talking to a best friend.

And you tell it all without feeling like being judged. A best friend is always there to comfort you in worst of the worse situations. This sense of warmth and comfort is much needed but is rare to find among people and when you do find it you know that person is your best friend and you should stick to them for long.

A best friend is the best source for an honest opinion whenever you need one. Since they know your true capabilities and potential and they always wish for your betterment they will never give you false compliments just to please your years. Not just for life changing decisions but also for tiniest matters of your life they act as an important critic and their opinions are unbiased. Even the negative remarks don’t upset you if they are coming from your best friend because you know they always mean well and are ultimately trying to correct your flaws and are motivating you to curb the recurrence of misappropriations of past.

No matter how strong a person seems to be, they sure do have their own weak points. We humans tend to be so strong on the exteriors but on looking upon the depth of our hearts we can be very weak and fragile. We often get hurt and are taken aback by many depressing situations. These situations can shake us to the core and all we feel like doing is sitting in a corner and crying our heart out. That’s when we need a best friend the most because unlike our other friends, this person won’t leave you and will be ready with his/her shoulder on which you can cry for as long as you feel like.

There are many decisions in life which you don’t feel very strong to take on your own. You do not need any expert advice but a simple word of advice from someone who understands you, has known you all along and knows what’s right for you and what not. A best friend is that someone who can act as a backbone to your success even while staying in dark and you need their constant guidance and support. They can show you the direction when you cannot see it on your own and can even get you back on your path if you ever get lost. But their support is something you will always cherish.

No insecurities, no formalities, no demands and no complaints, just never ending love. Sounds pleasant right? Yes, best friends are like that. They can turn your horrible days into sunny and can make you laugh when you don’t even want to smile. Really, a life without a best friend is a life wasted.
