I had a best friend once, which was way back in secondary school. We fell apart because she couldn’t keep a secret and we weren’t speaking for years. We made up in our final year in secondary school but it wasn’t the same again. That incident sealed up anything regarding BFFs for me.
I have learnt to categorize everyone into my “friend zone” nothing special about anyone....... be rest assured that any information I tell any living person isn’t something I will feel bad about if I get to hear about it from someone else....gone are the days of “don’t tell anyone else oh, it’s a secret”...mba....any secret is for my Hubby and God if I don’t tell him, it stays safe with me.
There are things I have shared on this blog that I might feel shy about, if my cover is blown but they are definitely not “secrets” like that. I prefer spilling my guts here knowing that my identity is hidden in a way. However, there is still a whole lot that is within me I wish I could share.......girlie stuff I wouldn’t mind sharing over a glass of “zobo” and suya... I would love going shopping with another lady who won’t mind the long hours ( did I ever mention Hubby dislikes shopping, he makes shopping feel like a visit to the arctic, he can’t understand why I can’t enter a store and be out in a second)
Thumbs up to those who have BFFs who have stayed true throughout the years......”it’s-not-a-easy-something” to have someone who watches your back, keeps your secret and is ready to fight your battles, a “tell- it-as-it-is–to-your-face” friend, “no holds barred” friend......I mean a real human friend and that is aside your spouse, sister or brother...... do BFFs still exist?
Is there a beginner’s guide to having BFFs?
