Who is your best friend????

They do say that I AM man's best friend...can I be your best friend??

They do say that I AM man's best friend...can I be your best friend??

Who is your best friend?  Who can you confide in 24/7?  Who is always there for you?  Who can you always count on, guaranteed, from today until the day you die? Who REALLY knows what you think…even your inner most private thoughts?  Who will be there for you in good/bad…in sickness and in health?  Who will still be your friend even if you have done things you are not proud of?  Who you ask???  Is a name coming to mind? Guess what? I know who can tick all of those boxes for you?……………………………………………..

It’s YOU!  When it comes down to it…you will always have YOU! You are the one and only guaranteed constant in your entire life. Do you treat yourself like a loving, supportive and caring best friend?  Do you tell yourself constantly that you are “worth it”? Guess what? You are worth it! Why do we beat ourselves up….why, at times are we our own worst enemy?  Why do we judge ourselves so harshly? Why do we put ourselves down?  Let’s make a deal with each other…every day from now on, let’s agree to treat ourselves like a best friend.  Let us look after ourselves, let us be kind, loving, accepting and supportive to ourselves. Let us tell ourselves, regularly, that we matter and that we are worthy of a wonderful and happy life. Let’s do things that we love. Let us admire our strengths and help us to grow through our weaknesses. When we have a problem or are down, let us get that positive best friend voice in our head that gets us through. Let’s pat ourselves on the back, everyday. When we slip, let’s be there to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and keep going……Will you do it with me?????? Will you be your own best friend????

  1. Awwwww thank you Happy as a Pig for naming Lizzy Maguire as your BEST friend!!! That’s soooo sweet but I hope that this doesn’t upset anyone!!!!! lol 🙂 You could have just picked up the phone and told me so, but to blog it to your 1205 hits……………..that’s awsome 🙂

  2. That’s 1210 hits now!!!!!! Wahoooo!!!! It would seem like you are nearly my only friend……or the only one brave enough to comment……. Come on other blog watchers….we need to know that you are out there….we’d love to hear from you. Lizzie, you are a lovely friend…you make me smile, cry with laughter and I love our little chats.

  3. I have to agree with you, Michelle. I am my best friend and maybe that’s the way it is supposed to be. If we don’t respect, love and count on ourselves how can we ever be friends with anyone else? You have to give to yourself before you are able to give to others.

  4. Aw, that’s so sweet of you Michelle. xo

  5. I absolutely LOVE this post. You’re right – we need to be our own best friends. I often remind myself (and my friends) of this very thing. Would we talk to someone we love the way we talk to ourselves? If the answer is no way – then why do we do it? We’ve learned such bad habits over the years and they need to be broken. Our inner critics are liars and will rob us of so much joy and peace if we don’t rein them in!

    I’m on board with you! Let’s be our own best friends indeed. The kinder we feel toward our own selves, the kinder we will be in general. Love is contagious. 🙂 It all begins within….

    Sending my very best love to you. I’m grateful for such a fantastic read this early afternoon. Thank you for writing it! 💚

We'd love to hear from you...Please leave a comment..
