Naija Best friends….

      How many of you have best friends? How many of those best friends consider you a friend? Meet Kay, meet Collins, meet Chi Chi, he is my best friend in the www (whole wide world)….

      Back in high school, some were born best friends while some had best friends thrust upon them. When your fellow students saw you and a particular student together for couple of times, they termed the both of you best friends and before you knew it, y’all started identifying yourselves as best friends.

        I have been opportune to be friends with both “best friend” parties and hear or see what goes on behind the scenes. Some of these people don’t feel the same way about the other party, yet they seem not to complain aloud cos of what people will say. I have often met people who say this is my best friend, and yet the best friend is barely accepting you as an acquaintance.

There are friends and there are friends….friends are greater than friends. If you have a friend and you don’t know that friend very well, try not to open your mouth to call him/her your best friend. There is a difference between a friend and a best friend.

This is my best friend…. Your best friend and yet you don’t know the kind of thing he/she likes.  A best friend is one whom you rejoice with when something good happens to him/her, even if you didn’t receive such a blessing. For instance, you and your “best friend” go for a job interview, he is accepted and you are not. As a best friend, its your civic duty to be “truly” happy for your best friend and to rejoice with him/her. As a best friend, you are supposed to stand with him/her when he’s under criticism or fire from every other person.

This is my best friend……How can you call him/her your best friend yet he doesn’t even know where you live. She doesn’t know anything about your family. He doesn’t know the kind of food you like. She doesn’t know what makes you tick.

This is my best friend……A best friend is someone who knows everything that needs to be known about you and still able to tolerate you.

  1. lol.. guess best friend is another one of those massively overrated terms…

  2. Danny, you may be right. I would like to learn other over rated terms

  3. i totally agree with u…. everyone uses the term loosely. My best friends know everything about me and they can even tell anyone wht i’d do in certain situations and its vice versa….. high school was the funniest cuz everyone was each other’s best friends even tho i may not know ur last name….lol

  4. I agree with your view about best friends! Fits my definition! I love the post
    When i was in junior secondary, i remember writing a letter about my best friend in a composition class and then my supposed best friend said her cousin was her best friend…made me very careful after that…lol…now i know what a best friend is!

  5. I had one of those best friends thrust upon me in sec. school. Funny enough, like u said we became best friends by force but we loved each other though. Till today, i still refer to her as my childhood best friend.

    There are a few people i refer to as my best friend, but i don’t know if it’s mutual but i love the friendship i have with them anyway, so that’s cool.

  6. @rebirth….true, in high school, it was like a business; everyone was each other’s best friend. Thanks for stopping by
    @writefreak….Thanks a lot…awww,it is events like this, that made me write this post. Situations where I think you are my best friend, and you consider me as an acqaintance
    @Sting….good for you. something good came out of the relationship

  7. Yeh, i’m a very loyal person so i’m really particular with my friends. The worst thing is thinking someone is your true friend- and the person stabs you in the back or just isnt a friend at all. Reminds me of some girl i used to be friends with called Linda. lol!!!

  8. @Tigress…lol, lets hope Linda gets it this time
