How many friends do you have? How many best friends do you have? Some people have many friends, but some have only a few.
However, best friends are different from friends. Most people have a few best friends, but they have many friends. For me, I only have two best friends from high school. How do I define best friends? I can say that they are kind, helpful, friendly, and encouraging. When I was in high school, I had problems with my studies. Two of my friends were with me, and they motivated, and taught me a lot. They were scared that I couldn’t go to university in Phnom Penh city. They tried their best to help me because they didn’t want to see me fail. I was able to finish grade 12 because of their presence. If there aren’t two of them, I cannot graduate and have a nice job. Best friends are important for each and every person, so please make a lot of best friends, not enemies.
