It's all good! This is a good testiment to the saying "can't we all just get along?" Because, yes we can. In fact, it is possible to have deep, meaniful relationships with people who have different belief systems and lifestyles than you.
I have been best friends with my friend since we were 11, which makes it 19 years now. We met on the school bus and sat next to each other almost an entire year before speaking to each other. She would save me a seat everyday but not a word was said until almost the end of 6th grade. Since then, we have married, had children, gone through life changing events, not spoken for periods of time and spoken everyday other times.
She is A God fearing Christian
Her husband hunts and brings home the bacon...literally
Has four children under the age of 7
Can be kind of messy in the upkeep of her house...but again she has four kids! :)
Did not go to college
Has never dated outside her race
Am spiritual but more in the sense of nature, healing crystals, body work
Am kind of OCD about clutter free spaces
Am a college graduate
Has only had one boyfriend within my race, have almost always dated outside my race
What we have in common:
Love our children and to spend a ton of time with them
Are Salt n Peppa fanatics; tore it up on my 30th bday party at the karoeke bar
Both had rocky childhoods
Are generous and kind people
Love to laugh...especially while sipping coffee and watching the Maury Povich show
Have always been there for each other to cry with, celebrate with, take each other's children and laugh with
Do you have a bestie? Do you have a lot in common, a little or nothing?
