In kindergarten, some kid would give you their crayon and then that person would just become your new best friend. But to me the words best friend are very important to me. Actually the word friend in general is very special. It takes time to form an awesome friendship with others. Everyone needs at least one good pal to always depend on. And lucky for me I have many great ones to depend on.

I believe in the statement a good buddy is always important to have. If I’m ever not having my best day or I’m in a bad mood; I can always count on many of my buddies to get me through it. In fact that is what their are for. I also know that if one of my girls is in need of some boosting up I got their back. I believe if someone is also one of your buddies you should never just let them step out of your life. Best friends just stick with you through the rough times and they are more important than a lot of other things because some might come and go but the really trustworthy ones stick with you forever.

Amazing acquaintance all over are so great. And having so many different kinds of play mates is really unique and awesome too. I can count on my pals for a lot of things. They are all apart of me. I look out for them and I know they always look out for me. We also look up to each other. I am proud of my friends accomplishments. Me and my group of girls are all alike but we still all are so different. We support each other with the different sports and activities we do. If one of us is sick we comfort them. I never like to see them sad. So when I do it makes me also sad inside. It’s great to make my buddies happy. Laughing with all of them is one of my favorite things. We laugh so much and joke around. I love to do this because that is what I am about. Having fun, laughing and joking around is some things I like to do everyday.

A dependable friend is something I would have to say everyone needs in life. Through the thick and thin they have always had my back. They don’t judge me either. Everyone does deserve having people in their life like this.
