Best Friend Essay

Friendship is one of the purest things that one can ever ask for. There are so many people whom we meet in the journey of life but very few of them leave a mark on us. The person who I consider as my best friend has made a significant impact on my life. We have shared beautiful moments together and the most beautiful thing is that our friendship is still growing. I feel I am the luckiest to have someone like him as my best friend. 

Friendship with My Best Friend

We became friends at the time of admission to our new class. In the first few days, we were a bit hesitant to talk to each other as we did not know each other. But, as time flew we became the best buddies in the class. I can remember on the first day when I introduced myself to him and tried to talk to him, I got very little response. I thought it would not work out. But surprisingly, we became the best friends in the middle of the academic session. 

People say that we complement each other. Our hobbies are the same. We both are very fond of cricket and we keep sharing lots of things about the game together. At the time when any problem arises, we try to solve it together. Our houses are also a stone’s throw distance apart. So, we visit each other’s place quite often. As a result, our parents have become friends too!    

During summer break last year, we went to a summer camp together. It was so much fun! We discovered that our choice of storybooks and fictional characters is also quite similar.

While together, we sometimes use different signs and gestures to communicate with each other which no one can understand. I have realized one thing that he is no less than family to me and as if we are brothers from different mothers. 

There are several reasons behind this bonding of ours. One is respect. My best friend is a warm-hearted person and always encourages me to help others. He is also very fond of music which, I think, makes him a more loveable person. He loves singing and I am learning to play the guitar. Someday, we wish to perform together on stage as a band. 

Apart from the above qualities, it is his kindness that impresses me a lot. His attitude towards the poor and downtrodden is worth appreciating. One day I saw him feeding a poor boy outside our school his own Tiffin. From that day, he has earned another level of respect from me. I feel inspired by him too. 


With my friend around, I have learnt how the saying “a friend in need is a friend indeed” is true. There has not been a single such incident when I have missed my school due to some illness and he has not helped me with his classwork. Our mutual respect and admiration are sure to make our friendship stronger with the years. A best friend is truly a valuable gem and I am lucky to have found that gem of my life.
