What's the difference? - October 12th 2012, 12:36 PM

I was wondering, what's the difference between 'friends' and 'best friends'?

Thanks,

22/12/2014 was the last date I self-harmed. The longest I have gone so far is 1 year, 2 months and 5 days. This time, I hope I can give up! New record: 1 year 6 months! Yay!!

It's just another way for people to categorize each other. If you like one of your friends, you might just stick to calling them a "friend." If you REALLY like one of your friends, you might start calling them a "best friend." When I was younger, telling people I had a "best friend" just showed how much I liked them in comparison to my other friends. Nowadays, I don't have a "best friend," because I like ALL of my friends, and each has traits I value. No one is particularly "better" than the others. Actually, that's not true... my "best friend" would be my boyfriend. =)

It short, the difference is whatever you decide it is.

A friend is someone who hears all the stories a best friends lives the story with them. A quote from something or other. It fits as well. I'm apparently a close friend, not best and my three friends are best friends. and I hear all these stories they've done together. So, yeah.

My blog is open to all, those whom are easily triggered avoid, it's a story about a girl and her life and how far she has come over the years. If you read it, I hope it inspires you to keep fighting and to NEVER give up!

When you can no longer think of a reason to continue, you must think of a reason to start over.
