Narrative Essay About Best Friends

Improved Essays
Best friends are the only thing in the world that stick by your side through the hard spells no matter what is occurring. They are the ones that tell you that look great in the morning, speak up for you when you do not, make you smile when no else can and they are the ones that love you for who you are. Best friends are a rarity just like diamonds and during my freshmen year of high school I met strangers that would soon become a fragment of myself and my family.

This was strange, confusing, and almost like diving into the unknown void of the universe for me but I liked it and because I liked it I dove straight into it. We spent almost every day with each other over the summer. Once school started, which was my sophomore year, we still hung out twenty-four-seven. Everything seemed perfect and I had so much confidence around them for example I stopped wearing the hoodie that I wore because I thought it hid my largeness, I began to push my shoulders back so I looked like I had more confidence instead of me pushing them forward, and I began to dress nicer to impress myself and not others.

That night I pledged to myself with every bone in my body that I would leave this funk and start to reinvent myself to become the person I was with all of my friends once again. This pledge of mine took a while, and once school started up again, I felt new, refreshed, and vibrant, which I had not felt before in months. I started to make more friends and began to expand my social standing and weeks later I would soon talk to people that I had never considered talking to in my
