Two Best Friends Are Better Than One

Going through high school and soon college, friendships change and relationships evolve. But the one thing had has remained a constant in my life are my two best friends. Too often I have been told by the four-year-old I babysit that it is impossible to have two best friends, one of them has to be your favorite, but that’s just not the case for me. They are completely different and I love every little thing about them. The best part is that if one of them can’t help me with something, there is a pretty good chance that the other one can.

I will be the first to admit that at times there are things that we will disagree on and occasionally two of us will gang up on the third person, but we’ve reached a point that nothing goes unsaid and we can always call each other out. You may think that always having a majority opinion would be a problem but it’s really not. There’s always a winner in the fight over where to go to dinner, there is an abundance of clothing to share, and our love for Girl’s Night is a pretty common theme.

Myself being an extremely awkward person, I am the worst when my best friends cry in front of me, but they, on the other hand, are the most comforting people on the planet. However, when they’re looking for someone to trash-talk their ex-boyfriends with, I’m kind of a go-to. I like to think that the three of us perfectly complement one another. I am more introverted and sarcastic, Mer is always level-headed but wildly opinionated, while our little Mads is spunky, friendly and flamboyant in all senses of the word. If there’s ever a time that I’m being annoyingly practical I know that they’ll make me see the fun side of life, while I, on the other hand, tend to be a voice of reason amidst their merriment.

I think that the primary reason that the three of us have stayed friends for so long is that we don’t do everything together. We each have completely different interests and plan to do completely different things in college. Within each of our respective extracurriculars, we each have many sets of friends that allow us to explore ourselves beyond our traditional friend group. Yet, no matter how much time we spend doing other things, we always make time for one another whether it be a simple lunch or just a text.

It’s so important to have friends that support your dreams but that also foster a sense of adventure and willingness to try new things. Rather than clinging to one another, the three of us have done wildly different things that have made us different people. Ultimately, all of these components that we have collected over the years have come together to make us like one superhuman best friend. I love Madison and Mer like sisters and they will always be the first people that I call when I have something going on. Although we will be hundreds of miles apart next year, I’m not nervous about the distance. I’m excited because I know that the road trips, football games, gossip sessions and phone calls will only make our friendship better.
