Friends walk into our lives and sometimes, eventually become family. They set roots so deep into our lives that we can’t imagine navigating through life without them.
These friends see our imperfections and love them while we can only pick them out. They are real people who have your back all the time, not because they have to but because they want to. When you meet such friends, you tend to feel like you suddenly got something right in life.
These friends are the family we get to choose.
Below are some of the best quotes on friends becoming family.
You don’t have to have the same blood to be family.
Family isn’t defined only by last names or by blood; it’s defined by commitment and love. It means showing up when they need it most. It means having each other’s backs. It means loving each other even on those days you struggle to like each other. It means never giving up on each other!
Friends pick us up when we fall down, and if they can’t pick us up, they lie down and listen for a while.
Best friends are people you can do anything and nothing with but still have the best time.
You are my people. This is where life is lived. These are the moments, the people that make life worth living. These are the people who make life beautiful. These are my people. This is my tribe.
Family isn’t always about people in your life who are blood relations. It’s about the people in your life who want you to be in theirs. It’s about the people in your life who accept you for who you are, support you in the things you choose to do and no matter what, are there for you. It’s the people in your life who love you, respect you, and who you can depend on.
My circle is small but the love is enormous and genuine. It gets no better.
You will fall in love with your friends. Deep, passionate love. You will create a second family with them, a kind of tribe that makes you feel less vulnerable. Sometimes our families can’t love us all the time. Sometimes we’re born into families who can’t love us properly. They do as much as they can but the rest is up to our friends. They can love you all the time without judgement, at least the good ones can.
The people who come into your life are the ones who know how to gently wait for you to heal.
Some people come into your life for a season, and some come for a lifetime.
Here’s to the nights that turned into morning and the friends who turned into family.
Sometimes you meet a person and you just click – you’re comfort with them like you’ve known them your whole life, and you don’t have to pretend to be anyone or anything.
A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you’ve been, accepts what you’ve become, and still gently allows you to grow.
Sometimes you meet someone and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. As lovers, or as friends, or as family, or something entirely different. You just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love or you’re partners in crime. You meet this people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or luck, or fate, or sheer blind luck but it definitely makes me believe in something.
There are friends, there’s family, and then there are friends that become family.
Friends…Fight for you. Respect you. Include you. Encourage you. Need you. Deserve you. Stand by you.
Family is more than blood and a name. It’s the people who stood by you when you needed them, and who made you laugh when you felt like you couldn’t.
You will always be the sister of my soul, the friend of my heart.
Friends come and go. So does a best friend. But beat friends will always find their way back.
Sister in-law by chance; friends by choice.
Find your tribe. Love the hard.
It’s exciting when you find parts of yourself in someone else.
Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance; they make the latitudes and longitudes.
I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light.
Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It’s not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything.
A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.
Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
A single rose can be my garden… a single friend, my world.
The real test of friendship is can you literally do nothing with the other person? Can you enjoy those moments of life that are utterly simple?
A loyal friend laughs at your jokes when they’re not so good, and sympathizes with your problems when they’re not so bad.
No person is your friend who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow.
The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart.
A friend knows the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails.
A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.
Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up the pieces when it’s all over.
I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship, it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff.
We cannot tell the precise moment when friendship is formed. As in filling a vessel drop by drop, there is at last a drop which makes it run over; so in a series of kindnesses there is at last one which makes the heart run over.
Friendship improves happiness, and abates misery, by doubling our joys, and dividing our grief.
Friends are the siblings God never gave us.
Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.
Friendship is the purest love.
A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself — and especially to feel, or not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at any moment is fine with them. That’s what real love amounts to – letting a person be what he really is.
Some people arrive and make such a beautiful impact on your life, you can barely remember what life was like without them.
I am grateful for the friends who have turned into family.
Family is not about blood. It’s about who’s willing to hold your hand when you need it the most.
Family isn’t always blood. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs; the ones who accept you for who you are. The ones who would do anything to see you smile and who love you no matter what.
Fr-amily. Friends so close to you. Consider them family.
