What do you think? Do you think that you're yourself's own 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...

Very true about not betraying yourself. Indeed, I am quite the same. I enjoy going out with friends and stuff but I don't rely on them for anything just because I don't like to bother people (unless I have no choice).

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.

Yes I like spending time with myself , I agree that you have to really like who you are and be comfortable in your own skin.

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.

Yes, it just makes things easier to be our best friends, and we won't do things to let ourselves down!

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?

Of course, as long as you value yourself, people will value you. I think the most important thing is really being comfortable in your own skin and have fun with yourself!

I believe so because we are created to take care of ourselves. Thus, we are bestfriends with ourselves through high or low.

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.
