Marion Winik once wrote, "I was thinking about how everybody can't be everything to each other, but some people can be something to each other." He was talking about how there are certain types of friends that we need in our lives. Likewise, we’ve all had that one friend whom we don't always get along with yet despite this, we remain friends. If this article reminds of you anyone in particular, share it to them and have a good laugh together, for a change.

  1. It always feels like you're walking on eggshells whenever you’re together.

The thing about being in an argument is that you usually don't remember how it started. Somehow, the universe just fast forwarded to the present moment where you're bantering with each other. The question of why you're both fighting has eluded both you and your friend, yet you can't help but keep on going. At one moment, you guys were just talking, then either you or your friend suddenly became quiet. When this happens, you know what's about to go down.

  1. Having something that both of you agree on is a rare occasion.

There are certain topics that no matter what you do, both of you just can't agree on. Whether it's about the state of the government or your stand on certain affairs, to picking out which Sprouse twin you'd rather date or whether or not it's right to support Taylor Swift, both of you are always at opposite ends of the spectrum. So when something does pop up, and both of you, for some miraculous reason, end up agreeing on one thing, you know that’s a cause for a celebration. History has been made!

  1. The fight won't stop unless one of you stops arguing and keeps quiet.

You know it's always better to let your pride down and keep quiet instead, otherwise, both of you could go for weeks on end trying to justify who is right and who is wrong.

  1. You usually don't say sorry anymore.


After every fight, there comes a time of ‘peace,’ wherein both of you don’t say anything at all to each other. Both of you are so used to fights happening that you don’t really need to say sorry anymore. The quiet atmosphere may go on for a while until both of you feel the tension go away and then you could go back to whatever both of you were doing before the fight even happened.

  1. Yet at the end of the day, you still love your friend even if she makes you go crazy all the time.

There really is no specific reason as to why both of you remain friends, and maybe there’s no actual reason to even explain why or how both of you could still remain friends but one thing is for sure, it's never a boring time when you're together. You're always sure that something will happen, whether or not it may be good or bad, it all depends on perspective.
