Do You Agree that You're Your Own Self's Best Friend?

I think i do... i never considered anyone as my bestfriend... eventhough i have a lot of friends... but i don't rely heavily on any of them... i can always do thing on my own... not that i don't like people... but i am the loner type... i still enjoy going out with friends... But i always depend on me to get things done... and i am sure that i will never betray myself...

I have never thought about it in this way before, but there is some truth in it, I think. I enjoy my own company, I can keep myself entertained, sometimes I treat myself, sometimes I can be critical of myself, and I am very self reliant, so I could say I am a good friend to myself. I think the important thing is that you have to like who you are or you can't expect other people to like you.

hi wondericequeen! i think that i am my ownself's bestfriend. after all, i am always there for myself, in good times and in bad times. i can say whatever i want without restrictions and hesitations even if its the terrible truth that may hurt me. i could only blame myself for it. in the end, it will always be me for myself. i could always count to myself at hard times.

Hello wondericequeen, I think it is right and I fully agree with your statement. I do have best friends but I prefer to keep everything to myself. Even my family members don't know every thing about me. The closest friend that I have right now is my husband but definitely I do keep certain matters away from him. For me, if it is best to keep it as a secret why I need to tell if it will destroy our relationship. And for that reason, I think only I, myself know me the best.

Absolutely. I am always telling people that if they cannot love themselves how can they love somebody else or expect somebody else to love them. Also, love without friendship is just infatuation, a sentiment that disappears in the mist of time. I think how you treat yourself is the key factor in how others are going to treat you. Don't you agree?

I definitely think I'm my own best friend - I'm the only person that understands myself completely. That's not to say that my friends aren't good enough, or that I'm selfish or anything. Just that I like being on my own more than I like being with my friends most of the time.
