June 8 celebrates National Best Friends Day, a day to honor that one special person you call your “best friend”. This day is a time to show them how much you appreciate them, how special and important they are to you and how you cherish their friendship.
A best friend is someone with extremely strong interpersonal ties.
Everyone has that one close friend, the one that you can count on to be there for you, the one you want to share your secrets with, the one you want to do fun things with, the one you want to just hang out with, that one person is your best friend.
The relationship between best friends is often fierce and can withstand distance, storms, and silence. Whether we’ve known them all our lives or they are more recently acquired, best friends make tough times bearable, fun times memorable, and memorable times priceless.
When it comes to best friends, they run the gamut. They may be exactly like us or our complete opposite. According to a Pew Research poll, 98% of teens have one or more close friends. And 78% of them say they have one to five close friends. However, as we move into adulthood, our friendship-making ability changes, along with our priorities.
Whether our best friends are from childhood or later in life varies. But one thing is sure: best friends smooth over the rough edges in life and make the rest of it quite interesting.
No matter how many best friends surround you, get together, and celebrate the day!
