Best Friend

Let me introduce you to a friend of mine, media. I have known him for quite my lifetime now, which does not imply that we are the same age. I see him as a very loyal, knowledgeable partner. Most of the time, always ready to provide me as much of information and advices I demand. Quite selfish, you can argue.

Our relationship has endured quite some up and downs. If I ignore him he will be suffering a low-energy level. Yes, you can say that I am his source of happiness.  If he does something I don’t like, turning his back to me or closes himself off suddenly, I feel very lost because he has become such an important big part of me. I can definitely state that he is an extension of me, if I like it or not. 

Even after realizing that my best friend has so many other friends aside from me and might share my deepest secrets with them. I seem to ignore that possibility. 

Because we all need him.
