You Should Always Be Your Best Friend's Biggest Fan

My best advice is to always be your best friend's strongest advocate and most positive influence.

You Should Always Be Your Best Friend's Biggest Fan

To me, the most valuable part of a friendship is having a permanent and consistent support system. It's about knowing that no matter what you go through, there will always be someone who has your back. It's about standing up for your friend in all circumstances. It's encouraging them when they are down and celebrating their every success. In all circumstances, you should be your best friend's biggest fan.

Life is not always an easy ride. We all face challenges, insecurities, and disappointments. People let us down and sometimes we even let ourselves down. We all need someone who is going to build us up in every situation. We need someone who will provide us with a fresh perspective and encouragement for every challenge we face. In college, I've realized that my greatest role as a friend is to be a constant champion of my best friend.

Being your best friend's biggest fan begins by acknowledging that your best friend is unstoppable. My best friend is honestly incredible. She's constantly pushing herself to try new things and testing her own limits. Her love of life and the people around her is inspiring. She's a blessing to everyone she meets and has been one of the best influences in my life thus far. Though an outsider can easily see all of these qualities, we sometimes struggle to see our own greatness.

We should all strive to be the biggest force of positivity in our friend's lives. No matter what, you should help them look at every situation in a positive light. When we are facing tough challenges, it is easy to focus solely on the negative aspects. Therefore, as a best friend, you should strive to be the one who always finds the positivity.

Sometimes all we need is someone to truly listen to us. As your best friend's biggest fan, you must also be a great listener. To truly understand the challenges your friend is facing, you must be willing to stop and listen. Sometimes the best way you can provide support and encouragement is by simply listening.

By far the best thing about a friendship is being each other's biggest fans. I can't count how many times my best friend has helped me process through a difficult situation. She's the person who will make time for me no matter how busy her schedule is. She is constantly reminding me of my own skills and abilities and is pushing me to step outside of my comfort zone.

I am grateful for my best friend every single day.

I can't imagine surviving college without her. There are very few people in life who are like my best friend. I hope that everyone finds a best friend who is as amazing as the one I have. My best advice is to always be your best friend's strongest advocate and most positive influence. Be the friend that you've always wanted to have, and I promise you it will come back to benefit you.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
