Every student or teacher at Brien Mcmahon has friends or a group of people they hang around 24/7. But not every student or teacher has a best friend in their life. What “Best Friend” means to me is someone who you can trust and someone who is always there when you need them. It doesn’t matter how long you have known that person, if that person is showing trust and loyalty then it is your choice if you want to give them the title of being your best friend.
Wynter Nance, a junior at Brien Mcmahon High School, said, “It is okay to not have a best friend, having a best friend is something that comes naturally, not something that is forced otherwise the friendship might not be ginuwine.” You’re best friend might not be someone who you hang out with everyday. The person you hang out with everyday could just be someone in your class, someone you have lunch with, or just a teammate. You don’t have to call them your best friend if they do not reach your requirements. According to research, the benefit of having a good friend or best friend is the same amount to $150,000.
Every best friend shares a bond or some kind of connection with each other. My best friend and I share a strong bond, the bond is so strong she has become family to me. Wynter added, “The relationship between my best friend and I is great. We talk every day, we know how to communicate and trust each other with everything. When one of us is going through something the other one is always there to listen and be a shoulder to cry on.” In any kind of friendship or relationship, communication is always the most important. If you feel like you can not communicate with your best friend then you should not call that person your best friend, you should be comfortable with having a normal conversation with your best friend.
To add, people argue all the time. If you have fallen out with someone and do not communicate with them about how you feel or about the situation itself then you have risked your relationship with that person. “Yes my best friend and I had an argument before but we had gotten over it after we realized how dumb it was. But what friendship doesn’t fall off? That’s a test to see how strong the friendship is. If you can’t argue with your best friend and bounce back then I don’t know what y’all got going on.” Responded but Wynter when asked Did you and your best friend have an argument.
