12 Signs, You Have Found A True, All-in, Best Friend

"A good friend is like a four-leaf clover: hard to find and lucky to have."-Irish Proverb

Finding a person that is a true friend takes time, and effort and can be a challenge for some people. Not because there aren't amazing people out there, but because the truth of the matter is that people are scared to be their true, authentic selves. So, when you've found that person, don't let them go and know that they are rare.

Here's a list of ten things that will help you know if you've found your true bestie.

1. They trust you

Whats a friendship, well any relationship, really. What do you have if you don't have trust?

2. They will call you out on any BS.

3. Distance and time don't mean anything

You can handle being apart for months at a time, and still when you're together again, it seems like no time has passed

4. They know you have flaws, but love you anyways.

And will always love you, despite those things.

5. They're a hype man (or woman) when they need to be

And, they can also be a shoulder to cry on when needed as well.

6.  They show you all of themselves

And you do the same, there's no faking it with them, even the most embarassing stuff.

7. They push you to be the best versions of yourself

From taking a risk to making a hard decision, everyone needs a little push occasionally. They encourage you to take a leap, and they pull you back should you start to stumble. They see your true potential, and they want you to live that.

8. They might fight you

But don't worry, it's because they want you to be your absolute best. True friends make you realize that you screwed up, but they would love to help you create a new outcome.

9. They won't let you settle.

Especially with that ex who was no good for you to begin with.

10. You can speak truth to each other.

You don't have to tiptoe around a situation, you can say exactly what's on your mind to her face. You can both say your opinion without being offended while valuing what the other person has to say.

11. You're apart of each others future

You can't imagine a time without them in your life.

12. They've seen you at your absolute worst and still love you

No questions, No judgements.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

The patriots of the American Revolution aren't the only ones who gave us the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
