Few arguments are worse than the ones you can get in with your best friends. Fighting with a best friend sucks because, well, best friends aren’t supposed to fight, you know? Your bestie is supposed to always be there for you and make you feel better. Who are you supposed to turn to when you’re mad at the person you usually turn to?!
I hate fighting with my best friends. For one thing, it’s always sort of awkward to be put in that situation. No one likes yelling at their BFF or having their BFF yell at them. It hurts really badly to hear mean things about you come out of your bestie’s mouth. And depending on what’s going on, it can take a while to make up and forgive each other. And, let’s face it, life sucks without a best friend.
So here’s what it’s really like to fight with your best friend, explained in GIFs, of course:
You find out your BFF is saying things behind your back or she says something rude to you or she ditches you or… something. I don’t know. Something happens that makes you really angry.
Your first instinct is to flip out on her. But… hold on. This is your best friend we’re talking about. How do you yell at her?
You talk to another friend about it first. She encourages you to stand up for yourself and say something.
You confront her to ask her what’s going on. Before you know it, you guys are screaming at each other.
You leave the fight feeling angry, confused, sad and most of all, hurt.
You reach for the phone to call… her. Damnit. Who are you supposed to vent to about this now?!
You call a different friend, but her tactics to cheer you up just don’t measure up to what your bestie can do.
You consider making up just to end this. But then you go online and see that she made a subliminal Facebook status about you. Seriously?!
You cry yourself to sleep because you’re not supposed to fight with your bestie like this.
The next day, you try to function without talking to her or texting her or seeing her. It feels weird.
You find out some of your friends are hanging out with HER and not YOU. Wtf?!
Fine. You’ll hang out with your other friends. You guys spend a good amount of time talking badly about your BFF.
Later on, you feel guilty about all of the things you said about her. You think about texting her, then change your mind.
A few days later, you see her. You two avoid looking at each other and things are incredibly awkward.
You go home and make a sad subliminal status about her.
You watch Pretty Little Liars by yourself and almost text her when something crazy happens until you remember… you can’t.
Okay, you can’t take it anymore. You text her to say you miss her.
It feels like weeks go by as you wait for her to respond.
When she does, she says… she misses you too! You guys talk it out and apologize.
All is right with the world! Yay! Now you vow to never, ever fight again. Besties for life, yo.
