Best Friends

I've never liked the term "best friend". It's frequently miss-used to cause pain to others (think on the playground), and I think it's frequently meant in the term "favorite" friend. The thing is, so many friends of mine are close, caring friends that I don't like the traditional structure of best friend.

For me, I have been blessed with so many caring people, and some who are the closest, I don't want to put them into the structure of best or not best friend. So, instead, I'll just say that when you do something you wouldn't normally do, just to help a friend, you're the best. When you help your friend reach new heights of ability or understanding, you're the best. When you share a good or bad moment, you're the best. What ever you do because you truly care, you are the best at that moment.

I like your philosophy of friendship. It's similar to my own, and it was well expressed.

I never enjoyed the term either. Why have one best friend when you can have lots of close friends?

I agree, I just try to love everybody. lol I have some folks who are closer to me than others, but they are all a part of my life for some reason.
