Who Are You Closest To? - August 17th 2009, 08:49 PM

This is a question that I've been contemplating lately. I want to know who is closer to their friends, who is closer to their family, who is closer to their partner, who is closer to themself, or who is equally close with all of them. First vote, then write why you are closer to them.


When you can't find your way home,
and when life gets too hard to face on your own.
I will stand as a light through the darkness unknown,
I will walk with you, so you're never alone.

Friends over family on the whole, definitely. Although I'm very very close to my little brother ~ not that we would sit down and discuss secrets or anything, but we get on amazingly and share the same weird sense of humour no one else in the world would understand. (:
As for partner or friends...I'm close with my boyfriend, but I think I'd go with friends for this one, simply because I'm only young and my boyfriend and I won't be together forever, but friends last a long time. (:

Myself. I don't tell anything to my parents and I don't feel as though I have any friends that I can completely trust. Although I don't necessarily like myself or even sometimes trust myself, I consider myself to be closest to myself for those reasons.

Although i feel i am closest to myself; i voted for friends because i have one friend whom i do like to spill my guts to on a regular basis, i don't mean to, but i do, and she tries to help. I don't know if that counts haha.


& it's just like she's in another world.

I voted for my friends, and then realized that was the complete wrong one to vote for. I'm definitely closest to myself. I have some close friends, but I just can never really trust anybody, because I've been let down so bad in the past. Nobody knows the real me except for me.

I'm not remotely close to my parents. Though, my brother and I are sort of close, but I wouldn't tell him secrets or such..

I voted for myself because although I do have close friends only I can know myself best regardless of what I'm able to impart to others on that topic. =)


Live and let live.

For me, it'd have to be one of my friends. Most friends I have I don't completely trust, but there's one I'd tell just about anything to. Not that I'm not close to my family, I love my mother, albeit refuse my father.

First to vote for my partner, wooh! I've always been very close with my friends, but I'm closest now with my girlfriend, just because we've helped each other through so many rough patches in the year we've been together. Seeing someone at their worst, and having them see you the same, and coming out the other side together really forms a bond of trust.


The atoms that make up you and me were born in the hearts of suns many times greater than ours, and in time our atoms will once again reside amongst the stars. Life is but an idle dalliance of the cosmos, frail, and soon forgotten. We have been set adrift in an ocean whose tides we are only beginning to comprehend and with that maturity has come the realization that we are, at least for now, alone. In that loneliness, it falls to us to shine as brightly as the stars from which we came.

I put myself. I do have my ex who is basically my best friend and I could tell him anything ... but I don't see him much at the moment and when we do manage to meet up it's always frowned upon by others and we don't get much time.

my best friend is the person i'm closest to. i know no matter what she'll never let me down and she'll always be there for me. that can't be said about anyone else in my life unfortunately.

other than that, my older brother. we're really close.


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

My partner. I spend more time with him than anyone else really, saying that I should have voted for myself since I spend every single moment with myself.

Myself but I am quite close to my little sis, not emotionally but she helps me more than she realises. She'll cheer me up when I'm feeling really low. It's the same with one of my friends, he can calm me when I go off the tracks but I can never tell him what's fully wrong.

None of my friends or family know everything about me, or know who I really am. And although I'm really close to my older sister, there are a lot of things she's unaware of. So I voted myself.

I voted for my friends because they are always there for me.
But also my boyfriend, I can tell him anything and everything, he is even better than my friends.

Hey,

I really like this question. I voted for myself. I have one really close friend that I tell a lot of things too, but I don't tell him everything, so I voted that I'm closest to myself.
I don't tell my family anything. I have a few friends, I don't tell them much, I'm not dating anyone, so that makes me ineligible to be equally close to them all, so I'm left with myself.


take care,

for me;
this is hard.
because i have one friend who i tell everything to.
and he's really cool.
but then again;
i am really close to myself also.
so it's inbetween friends and myself.
but only one or two friends.
haha.

Thats actually a REALLY good question... for awhile now I've consitered me being closest to my family.. but when i saw that "myself" option it got me to thinking..
I should do more soul-searching, i think :] haha
very VERY good question, though ;]
