On June 8th, honor your closest and dearest friend on Best Friends Day.
The relationship between best friends is often fierce and can withstand distance, storms and silence. Whether we’ve known them all our lives or they are more recently acquired, best friends make tough times bearable, fun times memorable, and memorable times priceless.
When it comes to best friends, they run the gamut. They may be exactly like us or our complete opposite. According to a Pew Research poll, 98% of teens have one or more close friends. And 78% of them say they have one to five close friends. (Pew 2018) However, as we move into adulthood, our friendship-making ability changes, along with our priorities.
Whether our best friends are from childhood or later in life varies. But one thing is sure: best friends smooth over the rough edges in life and make the rest of it quite interesting.
No matter how many best friends surround you, get together and celebrate the day!
Celebrate the day by letting your best friends know how much they mean to you! Far or near, send a note or invite them for a chat or dinner. Share a memory or two. Use #BestFriendsDay to post on social media.
