What Really Happens When You Live With Your Best Friends
Vulture

People always say, "Don't live with your best friends. It will ruin your friendships and you'll hate each other." I'm sure there is some truth in that, but what I've found is just the opposite. My relationships with my bffs/roommates have strengthened immensely.

There are times when we argue, of course. But when you live with someone, you learn how your personalities mesh. You have to see them again, so you learn how to resolve arguments and move on. My roommates and I have a lot of laughs and a lot of tears, and I wouldn't trade living with them for anything else.

I've found the Chandler to my Joey. And if you live with your friends, you know exactly what I mean. We are ready for a TV network to start filming our crazy lives any day now. Here's 20 reasons why living with your best friends is the greatest thing ever, as told by the cast of Friends:

1. You can say goodbye to secrets

2. They push you through the hard times

3. They don’t judge what (or who) you bring home

4. You learn to be straight up with each other


5. They are always there to join in on your shenanigans.

6. They always listen to your stories, no matter how ridiculous.

7. You learn to cook together

8. You always get their best advice

9. You are always learning new things from them

10. You constantly make fun of each other with the understanding that it is out of love

11. You keep each other in line with chores and cleanliness

12. You spend so much time together and click so well that you might as well be dating.

13. The party is only a few steps away

14. You get really lonely when you are the only person home

15. There are no boundaries

16. You are always happy when you’re reunited

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
