I don't have one best friend. I am fortune enough to have a few that check in on me. One calls everyday and another once or twice per week.
The one thing I would change with most of my fiends would be to see them more often. The one that calls once or twice per week I see only a few times per year.
We only live about 20-30 minutes from each other. He's busy with work and his family. It would still be nice to see him more.
My other friend I see about once per month. He's always on the road as a salesman so he can talk on the phone a lot while he's driving in between appointments.
My truest best friends I used to get to see everyday. That was my children. Losing them was devastating. I would desperately want custody back and to see them almost everyday.
I wanted their mother to be my best friend. Her sister would always seem to intervene with anyone in her life that would be closer to her than she was.
We would have disagreements and my ex would say her family or my family. I would always respond I care most about our family.
Looking back in never really felt like we had our own family. Influence from both sides was heavy. I would have loved for us to move somewhere to be able to be ourselves.
She said she couldn't do that to her mother or friends. They always seemed to have priority over me and our children.
The biggest thing I would change is the ability to be in a strong relationship and have my partner be my best friend.
I really hope to find love again. The next time I want to experience what a true best friend and life partner means. I'm often negative but not when it comes to love. I try and believe we all have someone out there to share life with. Someone that loves us for who we are and not what we might become in their mind.
Nothing would bring me greater joy than being able to find that and having my true best friend in my life everyday. I hope to reunite with my children as well.
