Thoughts On…Best Friends (Prompt)

Ever feel like you need to get something off your chest?  Sometimes I’ve just gotta talk it out.  That’s why I’ve decided to do a monthly feature called “Thoughts On…”  At the beginning of the month, I’ll provide a prompt to stimulate discussion.  The point is to get us to put our thoughts out there – writing it all down can be quite cathartic.  If you want to keep your writing private, that’s your thing and I won’t question it.  If you’re ready to put it all out there, I invite you to share your thoughts in the comments.  At the end of the month I’ll provide my own thoughts on the topic of the month.  Think of it as a book club for writing.

In this month’s “Thoughts On…” column, I’d like to think about best friends.  I think it’s important to have that go-to person in your life, but how do you choose?

thoughts on - best friends

Thought starters:

  • Do you have one best friend or multiple?  Is it still a best friend if you have more than one?
  • Some people say “my mom is my best friend” or “I’m so lucky my boyfriend and best friend are the same person.”  Does your best friend fall into one of those categories?
  • What are the qualities you look for in a best friend?
  • Does it work to have a best friend of the opposite sex?

Check back at the end of the month to see my thoughts on besties!
