    I don't know....reading all the stories here.

    ..makes me feel I was never really even friends with my best friend. I mean we never actually met. Except for once. Never before or after it. Just talked on the phone. I wonder then what was that illusion. How could I tell so much about myself to a person who I knew knows so many...

    I had a best friend who was the closest person

    to me in the world. We'd talk all the time, even when we weren't together, we'd text each other from "good morning" till "good night". Ever since I decided to move to the city next door to live with my boyfriend, things weren't the same. It gradually felt like she was...

    She was my height, we wore the same size jeans.

    We both cut our long hair into Mohawks and had the same crazy taste in different thing at a time. I left Trinidad to come to the US and she died almost a year after. Car accident. I couldn't cry for months. The songs remind me so much of her. It girl by Jason derulo. She used to...

    I lost my best friend a couple of months ago

    because of it I threw myself into work. I was plagued with grief and guilt, I never took the time to call him just to say Hi or make any plans to see him. He moved to Japan when I was in my last year of high school. I wish I could see his smiling face again.

    His birthday was on the first of this month.

    He left us seven years ago in March. I don't know why he took his life, but he said goodnight to me that night. What struck me as odd was that he said he loved me, and that he appreciated me. I've been hyper-sensitive to others choice of words and grammar since then. I used to...

    I lost my best friend last year around October.

    She was my other half in the completely opposite way. She was tall and skinny, I'm short and stout. We fought like sisters, loved like them too. Every time I was around here, no matter where I was or what was going on, I felt at home, I felt relieved. We had a falling out, after...

    since you have been gone. When I was 14, me and my best friends had taken the world. The trio and I would do anything and everything together. (Including daring each other to eat a piece of dog food- don't do it.) A member of the trio, well she killed herself on this day. We...

    I've lost multiple best friends.

    One to cancer and three to suicide. I can't imagine the pain they were going through, but now it's very painful for me. Luckily, I've mostly moved on emotionally, although I'll always remember them.
