Do you believe your friends became family to you? 597 People

    My Brothers

    I have five brothers, my parents named them after the apostles: John, James, Paul, Peter and Phillip.  This is absolutely true.  I just posted something where I mentioned my brothers, but I think maybe the idea belongs here. I grew up in a large, Catholic family...

    Best Friends

    Your best friend just has to be your family if he's your best friend. (I mean that as it's impossible to describe.)

    The Christmas Trip

    We were Juniors in High School and had been friends since 6th grade so she was the obvious choice when my parents told me I could pick a friend to take with on our Christmas vacation to see family.  Now I was born and raised in Texas but my parents weren't as lucky; they are...

    They Are

    (may she rest in peace)I had one best friend that knew more about me than my whole family combined. She was there for me more and she just understood me. She was like a sister a mother a pastor and a best friend rolled up in one. If I ever needed her no matter what time or what...

    Sometimes Even Better.

    Best friends choose each other.  Family is born to each other. So there are times I am much more open to my best friend, and inclined to share deeper things with them. Yes... best friends are family... in all the right ways. And I wouldn't trade mine for the world.

    Everyone who I become close to becomes more

    apart of my life and therefore becomes part of my family. So let's try to be friends.

    For My Bestie :)

    I just got back from a trip to the town where I grew up. As is usual when I'm spending a lot of time with my family, there was some stress. Also as usual, that stress was greatly alleviated by my best friend. We met in a sixth grade art class. Both of us were misfits, and after...

    My Best Friend Is Like A Sister

    We share and tell everything! we are very close and she is 1 friend one could ask for ? When ever I feel down she is like a phone call away. He supported me like my family would with all my troubles. I have the greatest friend anyone could ask for! She is like my sister!

    My Family Is Now Adopted

    My uncle by marriage (now divorced) to my aunt. My roommate. My mentor. My other friend. and they treat me with respect. I now reject anyone who does not respect me. My family did not. Maybe my mother tried. but she was so sick.

    I always separate friends from family but having a best friend is almost like family, actually it's more than that because I can tell my best friend things that I can't tell my family.

    Best Family Of Friends

    Who says that friends can't be considered as family? Who says that? Who's law is it? I do consider most of my friends like family and I don't see that changing. It could be my family's friends, my EP friends or my new penpal friends but that doesn't make them any less of family...

    There's No Other Way!

    For me... it's pretty darn hard for me to not include a best friend as part of my family! They become my sisters and brothers. :-) I introduce them to the key people in my life, my blood-related siblings and my mother. They are worried for, taken care of, talked about (mostly in...
