Let's talk about best friends.

πŸ’› Bear with me regarding this concept because I am all about friendship πŸ‘¬πŸ‘«πŸ‘­ in general and female friendship πŸ‘­ in particular.

Let me tweak this idea a little.

The idea of having just one single best friend is a little overrated.

It needs a bit of a revamp, I think.

We need to think on a wider scale.

Think about the concept of BFFs as it existed when you were little and the pressure to have ONE TRUE BEST FRIEND was enormous and crushing.

Think about the petty little fights you had, think about ripping off your BFF necklace πŸ’” and giving it to someone else, think about how many times the cycle repeated itself.

Now, read this with an open mind and tell me what you think.

1. It's Just a Phrase

person, emotion, love, romance, Come,

β€œBest friend” is just a phrase that, honestly, you can tack onto anyone who gets you, supports you, or makes you laugh – think about how many people you describe as your best friend.

2. You Can Have More than One

You're not in grade school any longer, so there aren't a bunch of girls trying to dictate the rules of best friendship, meaning that you don't have to limit yourself to just one.

3. And, Honestly, You Probably Should

The more friends you are, the more support you have – and if you have more best friends, then there's more love to go around.

4. You Can't Get Everything You Need from a Single Person

person, woman, facial expression, classroom, room,

No single person can give you everything you need all the time, and it's actually unfair to expect that, which is why it's not just fine to have more than one best friend, it's practically essential.

5. Different Aspects of Your Life Need Different Types of Support

You need a friend for different facets of your life – a work bestie, a school bestie, a wingwoman bestie, and so on.3
