Who needs Prozac when you have best friends you can unload on? Best friends let you bitch about anything and everything and don't judge you. They listen to what you have to say and really care how you feel. They cry with you over the loss of a loved one, the birth of a child, a wedding and even when a spouse gets a new job(Congratulations Nancy!). They get excited for each other over a move to a new house or condominium(Way to Go JoDee!). Best Friends can go for weeks sometimes without seeing each other but if you need them they are there in a heartbeat. They encourage each other in whatever opportunities they may seek and are the first ones there to pick up the pieces if it doesn't work out. Best Friends just seem to get you when no one else does.
JoDee, Nancy and I have been best friends for many years and have seen each other through many things both good and bad. We're always there for each other and have each others backs.
We try to get together once a month for breakfast or dinner but it doesn't always work out due to our busy lives. That doesn't matter because we keep in touch by email and if one of us needs the others we're there. We know we can share anything whether it's good news, bad news or anything in between and it stays in the room with us and when we leave we all feel so much better. Problems solved or at least if not solved, shared so they don't feel so big anymore. I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends.
