Sure, it's nice to have someone who will be your shopping buddy, or someone who will bring out the best in you at parties, but that's not all a best friend does. A best friend is someone you can trust all of your emotional baggage with. They help you get through rough times, and you would do the same for them. Heck, you'd take a bullet for them. Because they are more than just a friend to you. Your best friend is your family.
