The day I meet my best friend was when I was fifteen, and I met him while visiting my uncle. Even though I had seen him in school, I had never talked to him. Surprisingly after we started talking, it only took us three months to start dating. After two years, we are now engaged. This wonderful man has shown me that getting abused is not what every man does, and that you can’t show love that way. In addition, he has also helped me graduate high school by being there for me and pushing me to do better. With him I have learned that when someone truly loves you they will want you to do the best in life.
My best friend has shown me that getting abused is not what every man does to their family and wife. For instance, when my mother is sad and …show more content…
My family tells me every time I see them that I have changed for the better since we have started being friends and dating. I’ve learned that believing in myself and accomplishing my goals makes me easier to talk to; some say that if you have no faith in yourself you are shy unlike when you believe in yourself. Since being with him I’ve learned a lot, but the one thing I will always remember is that I can accomplish anything.
When I look back upon that day, I think about how nervous I was to talk to him. When you think about the day you meet your best friend, what comes to your mind? He has affected my life in many ways, but the one way that sticks with me the most is when he showed me that getting abused is not what men are supposed to do. It’s not true love, and you can’t show love that way it is hate. He has also affected my life by helping me graduate high school. He has truly affected my life if I can do just a third of what he’s done for me I still wouldn’t be able to repay him. Has anyone ever made you feel like your worth a hundred dollars because that’s what true friendship and love is. The one thing that he has taught me to do every day is to always believe in myself and to always love yourself. I truly wish I could affect his life like he has mine. I wouldn’t be the person I am today if it wasn’t for him pushing me to do my best at everything. I am truly grateful that he has

One day in 6th grade I met my hero and best friend. She saved me by many things that day, but this was the most caring one. We were walking around a round the gym and talking, when we walked into a boy I had problems with. We lashed out at each other saying stuff like "you stink!" , "stop being and arse!", etc. She tried to get me to stop arguing eventually I did, after him and his minions stomped away.
Today I am talking about how my best friend and I met. My best friend’s name is Sydney Rott. The story of how we met is a cliché but I am going to explain it anyway. We didn't know each other up until my Sophomore year and her Junior year. I decided I wanted to go out for the tennis team, even though I have never really played before, I still decided to join. Sydney was the number one player for the Harrisburg Tennis Team. I thought that she was a brat when I first met her, but as time went on I started to like her.
At the very moment of our meeting, nothing about me changed. As time as progressed however, I can see the impact she has left on my life. I now know that I have strength that only she could bring out in me. Before I met her, I did not think I was capable of making it through a bad day or not letting what people say about me bother me. She reminds me everyday of the strength I have and that has made me more confident. This has shaped my indentity because I am now stronger than I ever would have been without meeting her. Also, I know the capabilities I have that can inspire others. I never used to reach out to people in need and offer help and my advice. Now, I realized that I am truly capable of helping others, and it is now part of my daily life to help anyone I can. These things that she helped me realize have left a lasting impact on my identity. I now know that I am strong and can have confidence, I would not have realized those things if I had never met her. I also know that part of my identity is helping others onto the path of success, and that is something that I will not stop doing because it is now who I am. These new found pieces of me that help shape my identity would not have been impressed into my life without the moment I met my best friend. At first I did not realize how much she helped change and shape me, but now I see and am truly grateful for the impact she has had on my new

As time pass , things may get tough, and may be scary, but I have Jaytion to thank for getting through troubled times and
As we got to know each other better, I realized just how much friendship meant to him and why trusting me was difficult for him. Awley told me about how he was the “weird” one at school. How the other kids did not want to sit with him at lunch and would not play with him at recess. One of the most heartbreaking things to hear is a six year-old kid telling you about how he is lonely at school everyday. He tells me about how he used to be friends with this girl, but she eventually did not want to sit with him because one of the other boys had told her not to.
In the midst of my tears at the beginning of that car ride in August, my mom said, “you’re going to make friends. You’re going to form deeper friendships than you have ever known to last a lifetime.”
I recall meeting him that first day and acknowledging how great I felt simply being with him. It was as though a weight had been lifted from my shoulders. I all of a sudden felt free and loose, as though I needed to stress over nothing in life until kingdom come. He would be exceptionally strong of my thoughts and my choices and would urge me to feel free to do what I needed the most. He gave me the foundation bolster that I had constantly expected to further to my arrangements yet had felt so frail some time recently. He had a skill of making me snicker and like myself and whatever was going ahead around then. Beside making me feel candidly steady, safe, and secure, he likewise made me feel extremely secure fiscally. He made it look so natural, as though I would never need to stress over cash until the end of time. He made me feel that I could believe him with regardless. This is maybe the reaason that I wedded him in any case, as a result of how he great he made me feel about myself: extremely sheltered, secure, and
My freshman year, I became best friends with Whitney Turner, a senior, we did everything together it seemed like. She did so much for me that year, from taking me to practice to giving great advice. My sophomore year I decided to not only play volleyball and basketball but to also run track, one of my worst decisions I made I think. This year was one of my favorites for sure. I had many friends who were older and I was able to hang out with them all of the time. One of my really good friends was Kaylee Irwin, you could find us together all of the time. We have so many memories together from going to the lake to driving around listening to music. During basketball season my teammates and I were very close. We hung out almost every weekend and there was never a dull moment with those girls. During this year, the boy’s basketball went to the state championship and I was able to a part of that. The summer before my junior year, I was asked to be a part of the Madison County Youth Leadership Academy. This was such an amazing experience and it truly made me a better person. Also during my junior year, I started dating Connor Love and he has made such an impact on my
The first time we met, I didn’t realize that the seemingly meathead jock with the deep rumbling voice would teach me how to be me and swim in the oceans of life. In putting my trust in him, I gained an inveterate friend who has always been there to pick me up when I fell and knows exactly how to right my path. When we met, I was abashed by life and petrified to be me; he was self-assured, impeccable in every aspect of life. He has saved me more times than could possibly be counted; everyone should be so lucky as to have a friend like him.
Have you ever had a friend that stayed with you for over 12 years? I have, and it's been a long and exciting ride. Let me take you through this story that lasted that long. It all started when I was three years old. My Mom and Dad bought a Spider-Man bike. At the time the bike was too big for me so I had to wait until I was old enough to ride it. Finally, I was big enough to ride the little piece of metal on wheels I was waiting to ride for what felt like ages. my Mom, Dad and I went to Kennedy Park. I envisioned that I was going to crash. Although I was scared to ride that fear turned into excitement. Before I knew it, my Dad pushed me and my little red and blue bike down a grassy hill. That little moment got me that much closer to what
In second grade at Blue River Elementary School, my friend Peyton and I were not very good friends. One day Peyton's mom came in to eat lunch with her. In elementary school, we could pick a friend to eat with us in the back room with our parents. That day Peyton chose me to eat lunch with her which was surprising because I didn't really know her. At lunch, we learned a lot about each other. At recess, we played with each other without anyone else. The next day her mom came again and she happily picked me. That day was like magic because from that day on we were best friends. Even though we had been friends since preschool we didn't officially know each other until that time. We now say that we were meant to become best friends and
Andrew and I’s friendship. First year we were not even friends; kind of hated each other. We had a mutual friend so we started to be around each other more, where we became friends. To now this day, we are best friends and are in golden days of life.
No matter what I did he was something like my personal sideline cheerleader. I remember when I told him I wanted to lose weight he was right there by my side. At our old high school whenever we didn’t have band practice or he didn’t have baseball practice he would come with me to the little gym. He was there motivating and pushing me whenever I felt like it was too much. He would tell him how proud he was of my progress. Even now in college we both go to different schools, but he’s still supporting me from a distance. Whenever I’m in the rec center working out I can hear his voice in my head saying, “You got this Babygirl!” If anything it pushes me more and makes me want to work harder. Zirren has always supported me from an academic point of view as well. We pretty much had all our main classes together so whenever there was something I didn’t understand he would explain it to me. He was my own little tutor. When we were graduating I was named Valedictorian. So I had to write my Valedictorian Speech. I had no help, no guidlunes to go by, nobody to assist me in the revising and editing of it. Zirren stepped in and did all of that for me. Because Of him I was able to deliver I wonderful speech. I don’t think he’ll ever understand how much his support and love has means to me. He has helped me realize the kind of woman I want to be for myself and for him. I could never thank him enough
