I believe every one should have a best friend. Everybody needs someone they can count on and trust in their time of need. The one person you know you can always talk to and count on is your best friend. If you have more than one person that you feel this way about than that’s great and you have more than one best friend.

A best friend is there when you need someone to talk to. A best friend is some who is there for you in your time of need. Or maybe they are just somebody who you love to hang out with and get along great with. Either way it is someone you need in your life.

I believe if you don’t have a best friend then you’re not going to be a very happy person. Everyone needs a friend to share feelings, moments, and good times. So I believe everyone should have a best friend.
