If you’re strapped for cash, she’ll lend you money. If you have nothing to wear, you can raid her wardrobe, and when it comes to getting married, you’re guaranteed to be her bridesmaid.
She will always tell you the truth. When you needed an opinion on that new dress that was simply not flattering, it was your best friend who put you straight.

Where would you be without your best friend? She’s there through the hard times and the good, and she always has your back.
But a best friend is not only an invaluable ally in life, she’s also your most important asset in keeping on top of your mood.
Research shows that a good friend can benefit your emotional health like nothing else. Think about it: life is easier when you’re not alone.
So go on, let her know what she means to you today. It will benefit you both!
