Besties. Sometimes that person who hold this special title is a little bit crazy. Consider that the reason why they’re on the top of the best friend food chain is because they’re bold enough to get weird and stay that way.
They have their own way of doing things, most likely not conventional
Sometime your bestie does the most peculiar things that have grown to be lovable and laughable. If they’ve done something weird enough to make you say, “I can’t believe they would do that in front of me”, they’re awesome and you know it. Your bestie may not eat some commons foods or have a ritualistic way that they eat or wind down from a long day.
You know the best friend that makes a bonfire to mark new beginnings and endings. The best friend that successfully eats spaghetti and drives at the same time. The one that tells you visiting the nude beach will increase your levels of vitamin D.
They do what they think and feel is right regardless of what others think
Your best friend became your best friend because they encourage you to be you. You also return the favor. Since you make them feel comfortable, they tend to do whatever they feel like doing around you.
They may dye their hair (regardless of where it is) or dye their clothes. Regardless if it’s unconventional, they take the road they want to travel whether it’s crowded or not.
They make you realize that you’re weird too
What is weird anyway? It’s not normal. Where along your journey did you begin to strive to be normal? Through a strange process of osmosis, you notice yourself getting weirder with your bestie and you like it. You’ve gone further towards one end of the spectrum. You start to notice that you have your own unconventional ways.
It could be that you become strangely tactful in some areas of life or you’ve decided to let it hang loose. You knowingly become more weird because you know you’re being yourself. Unraveling your personality until you reach the core is best done with a weirdo. Everyone else is likely to encourage your normality.
They piss you off but you still want to hang out
You get so frustrated and can even clash, but you both have an unspoken agreement. No one is going anywhere. You’re still going to continue to be there for each other. So, it’s healthy to air out your negative feelings instead of letting them fester.
Better to let your bestie know sooner than later that their driving terrifies you or some other habit has grown to be annoying. Besides, if you got another bestie they might be too normal.
Doing silly things in public is normal
Public? What is that? Your bestie lives inside a bubble where they can perfectly be themselves no matter where they are. Their inner child lives on and if they feel the need to bust a move in the grocery store, they will. They’re not afraid to ask questions or make statements. There is a filter on what they will say and do, it’s just that the filter is hardly there.
Some of the best moments in life are when your bestie does funny things and you’re stricken with laughter. Not just any chuckle either. The kind of memorable laughter that you talk about for years and it never loses its luster. You laugh about the things you’ll never tell your children about. It takes a certain level of boldness to be weird. Your learn from your bestie every time they do something out of the norm to continue being your weird self.
