It’s often said that opposites attract, but is that really the case. Well, Sarah and I certainly like to think so. From the day we first meet it was apparent just how different we were. Sarah liked leather jackets, lip-gloss and order in her life. I however, was a bit of hoarder who liked to cook and wear bold lipstick. Despite our blatant differences, we quickly discovered we complemented each other beautifully – so much so that in less than a month we became the bestest of friends. Several years down the line we thought it would be fun to share with you why our dissimilarities brought us closer together and why contrary to popular belief they will never tear us apart.lipstick oppnude gloss oppWe both bring completely different things to the table – The relationship you have with you BFF is arguably one of the strongest relationship your will ever have. So when your best friend is completely different to you, you are both opening yourselves up to a whole new world of exciting possibilities thanks to your entirely different skill sets and personality traits. It is these difference that help to create an exciting new mix of energy that somehow in our case just works. As such, it is safe to say as individuals like everyone else we are pretty awesome, but together, we are kind of like this unstoppable force.v + books oppWe push each other out of our each other’s comfort zones – When you have a BFF that is completely different to you are more inclined to always try something new. Sarah always without fail manages to persuades me into do things I wouldn’t think I was capable of doing in a million years, but in retrospect I am actually incredibly grateful she did. Likewise, I too get her to do things she wouldn’t normally be comfortable with. It’s this unique ability to push each other that allows us to ultimately improve not only ourselves but also each other.heels oppflats oppAnd last but by no means least we never get bored – We might be different in how we think, the way we act, the way we dress and the way we work, but that only makes our unique dynamic more and more interesting to us. Best of all no matter where we are, what we’re doing or what we’re going through we know we can always count on each other to be there and that because when it comes down to the nitty gritty, the two of us share the most important things of all – complete and utter love and respect for each other and our differences.
