#5 Comfort Zone

Friendship (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

‘You ARE my best friend’

 ‘A best friend is not only someone you have a good time with, it is also someone you believe you can trust your life with. A best friend is the first person you call when the most amazing things happen in your life, and when the most horrific incidents happen. A best friend is the person you will always remember no matter what comes about. Some people lose the only true best friend they will ever have, and even when they get new “best friends” .. that old, real best friend is always on their mind. A best friend is almost like real family, a best friend gives the opinion you usually care most about. A best friend is the one who tells you the things you absolutely need to hear regardless of whether you want to hear it or not. A best friend is the person you usually can be around always and never get sick of. A best friend is someone you don’t envy, and is the person you are grateful to have as a friend. A best friend is the one who will forgive you always, even when you’ve screwed up so bad. And a best friend is the one who even though you may have drifted apart from, when the time comes for them to hug you or congratulate you on an accomplishment or to console you on a loss.. they are the number one person you want to see, always because they are the person you’ve confided the most in and they are the person who knows you the best .. even when you both have changed.Your real, true best friend is your comfort zone.’

The above ‘definition’ is from the really reliable source that is…urban dictionary (lol) Regardless, I think this is a pretty close summary of what he and I consider to be friendship (of the best kind)

The day he told me that everything he had ever said to me had been a lie, one of the first things I asked (aside from if he was really a woman *cringe*) was if that meant that I wasn’t really his best friend.

That day he said  he wasn’t sure, he thought I was ‘probably’ the person he was closest to but the rest of the stuff that comes with the territory of BFFs was ‘probably’ not true….how annoyingly vague lol.

This admission cut deep, its silly because the whole situation cut deep but on THAT day this was the thing which I distinctly remember feeling my first gut punch from…My best friend is gone…he never existed 😦

Well, since then apparently he has had time to reconsider and has come to realise that in fact I really AM his best friend, I am his comfort zone.

    Sounds like he’s getting more clarity and so are you, Beth. I’m glad.

    Ebbs and flows… rocky sometimes. Be your own best friend while you are renewing your relationship…

    Can I ask you what caused him to reconsider?

      To be honest I didnt ask him that much, I would assume its from feeling supported and loved enough to be able to open up to me over others but…thats just a guess xB

    Odd how sometimes what would seem to others like the least offensive part of a personal crisis is what has the most negative effect on our emotions. You are amazing, resilient and strong. It is his loss should he not realise this.
