Do you believe your friends became family to you? 743 People

    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...

    To My Pal And Confidant

    I just got done spending another great, but to far in between, weekend with my best friend. It always feels just like old times and we talk as if no time at all has really passed. It is nice to be with someone who understands you in all of your weirdness and partakes in some of...

    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!

    world, most of them I have yet to meet, but they're just never around when I need them most. Like my big cousin who I looked at her like a big sister more isn't around anymore, my aunties and uncles aren't around, not even my grandparents... The only real family I do got is my...

    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...

    I Always Separate Friends F...

    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.

    I've always wanted to live with a group of

    friends like a big dysfunctional family but that would possibly be a recipe for disaster.

    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...

    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...

    Looking at you make me sad.

    We use to talk all the time for a very long time. Now we hardly talk. We were suppose to be best friends forever! Sisters. Family forever and nothing was suppose to get between us. I blame you honestly. You changed. And I guess so did I after a while. You stopped caring about me...

    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.)

    I'm honestly grateful to have met them

    and have them in my life. We talk about almost anything, cuggles during movies and just because, because lets face it the body is a freaking amazing pillow, and fight about the dumbest **** ever. But they're family and I'm pretty much the adopted child in theirs. Its actually...

    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.

    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...
