Many people ignore the fact that meaningful relationships are also deep, sincere friendships. We all know then that good friends are like stars; they are so precious to the extent of sharing with them the most significant moments of your life.
Your partner can be your best friend in deeper terms. Others may not understand the true meaning of this, but it is enough that you do.
This friendship may not make sense since you already share a life, yet with time, a shoulder to cry on after the hits that you receive from life might be needed. A friend will have always your back and will always boost your self-esteem.
