Hey, Pandas! Just wondering what was the nicest thing a friend or more than one friend has done for you?

#1

When I was in sixth grade my parents uprooted me from my childhood home. I hadn't had great friends most my life, but the years leading up I had made some really good friends. THey threw me a goodbye party and I'm tearing up just thinking about it. After I moved I got bullied a lot and didn't have any friends but some of my old friends stayed in touch with me.

Hmm. I guess when I came out to my friend over text, and then she came out to me. It makes me happy to know that we are LGBTQ+ buddies.

I sorta quit the “popular friend group” in 6th grade, because of bullying and they were super toxic. I was sitting alone at lunch, and these kids I never knew came up to me and just asked if I was ok. I told them what had happened, and they marched up to the “popular kids” and told them off like heck. We’ve been friends ever since because they 3 people there helped me through a rough time. It’s 11th grade now and I’m just so happy for what they’ve done for me.

Aww, that's sweet. I can relate. Often, the 'popular' friend group is the one with the most toxic relationships. I left the group and came back with my now best friend Rowan to tell them off. It's so sweet that they stayed your friends. I hope they stay your friends for a long, long time. <3

Ok, well my BFF is named Hailey (we have the same name, that's why we are friends) and on the first day of school (when we met) I fell off of the "dragon equipment". I started screaming crying and Hailey came and got me too the nurses room! Im so glad she did that!! If she didn't i would've known i broke my arm that day.

When I was 16, my friend Rowan let me stay with him until we went to college. I was thrown out of my house and disowned after I was forced out of the closet (I'm panromantic).

I come from an old-fashioned family with traditional gender roles and beliefs. Girls were expected to marry at 19, have tons of children, and stay at home. Boys were supposed to join the family business (I actually don't know what the business is, because my mother said it wasn't a girl's place to know).

So I appeared on my friend's doorstep, at 2 am, with a nasty bruise on my temple and a burn mark on my wrist. My (psycho) cousin Anne threw the family Bible at me after she forced me out of the closet. My mother 'accidentally' burned me with my father's cigar (yep, a cigar) after she burned my name off of the Bible.

He and his parents let me stay with them for 3 years until Rowan and I went to college. His parents helped pay my college fees since I was cut off from the family money.

Now, I'm 19, and happy as a single Pringle (take that, Mother), no kids, and studying music at the Boston Conservatory with Rowan. We share an apartment with two of our friends.

(I freaking hate your guts, Mother. B*tch.)

I have a few things.
1. One of my friends supported me and helped me break up with my boyfriend. The relationship was going downhill, and though I wanted too, I couldn't muster up enough courage to tell him I wanted to break up (I was shy, and I'm typically a doormat-type person). She helped me end that relationship, and since then, my mental health has only improved.

2. My friends supported me when I came out as a lesbian

3. They gave words of encouragement and support when I fell into a deep downward spiral of depression and anxiety

4. They tolerate my weirdness :)

5. They don't laugh at my interests, instead they encourage them

6. We stand up for each other

My friends and I have a bond that is nearly sisterly, one of them I have known for so long we are practically sisters. I trust them with anything and everything.

For all the girls that are hurting inside, just know that you are beautiful and I want you to do a couple of things for me... At least every morning tell yourself how AMAZING you are and then OWN every bite of your soul, own every curve, every inch of your body. And don't listen to the haters just listen to your heart and be you!! The amazing person I know you are, and that you know you are! I live every one of you guys and wish you the best! Someone once said to me this~ " Girls are way more than their body there are SMART, BEAUTIFUL, WEIRD, SHY, GOOFY, LOVING, and so much more than what guys say we are!" go listen to Scars to your beautiful!! Great song and reccomened it if you are shaming your body right now!

Talked- well chatted- through COVID. I've tried to start group chats with my group of friends, and it lasts for like a week and then it basically becomes extinct. One of my friends is the only one who has consistently chatted, so I just made a separate chat. A smaller thing, but one that mattered to me. It wasn't anything like getting through a hard time. One of my friends gave me an old MJ watch. It was just random but also made my day.

Actually being "there" for us. I was home dealing with a health issue my son was going through. My husband was driving home. He left work early to be with me and our son. He was hit broadside. The car was totalled but he was okay. He called our friends and asked if they would pick him up so I wouldn't have more worry. He was able to walk in the door and tell me the story. Otherwise he'd have had to call, tell me what happened and then we'd have had to figure out how to get him home. BTW the accident was not his fault. The other driver turned left directly into the side of our car. Both had green lights, my husband had the right of way.

my dad left when i was 4 , and my mom mentally checked out on drugs. the state foster care system removed me and my siblings and we were all separated. i was adopted but i just never fitted in with the family. i was bullied through out school. i later was disowned by my adoptive family and moved to a new foster family in a different town. so at these point in my life i felt i was alone and no one was there for me, and there was no one that cared about me and i thought it was aways gonna be like these. when i moved to the new town these is were i met my really good friend . my friend did not discriminant that i was a former criminal and did not make fun of me for being mexican but i was born wrong and came out light skinned. my friend made me feel accepted. but that is not the nicest thing she did for me.
later on i developed feelings for her but i never knew how to tell her because she was my best friend and i thought it would be awkward. she latter confessed having feelings for me. we then got together.
so the nicest thing she ever did for me was make me feel loved, needed, cared for , made me feel happy , and most of all my best friend said yes when i asked her to marry me.

This didn’t happen to me but I did something nice for my best friend. My friend was going through a rough time and we were taking a school trip. They put her bag in the back of the bus where they handle the stuff horribly. A bunch of people and I told the bus driver to stop the bus because her stuff was fragile and it is a 3 hour drive there and back. She got her stuff comforting herself by knowing her valuables were safe. By the way, she brought valuable things on the trip because we stay there for a few days and she gets home sick really easily.

They have always been there for me when I'm having a hard time. I have 3 bffs 2 girls and 1 boy and they are the best thing that ever happened to me. I've been through some rough times lately and honestly I wouldn't still be here if it wernt for them. The girls are my girlfriends they are amazing and are always there to talk and mess around. The boy is the type who acts like he doesn't care but when I'm sad he will lift me up and he tries his hardest to make you smile. I love my friends and I honestly cant say it enough! ❤

I was going through one of the worst periods of my life. My husband had been arrested and all of our "friends" just abandoned me. I couldn't pay the rent and had to leave, making me homeless. One of our true friends allowed me to stay in his spare room for about 2 months until I could get on my feet and get some money saved. I then found a small apartment that I could afford. We live miles apart now, but we do keep in touch.

None of my friends did anything nice.

1. My friend told my crush I liked him! But my crush actually helped me find her after she ran away. He’s the sweetest (but he was gay)

2. My friends pantsed me (I said this before)

3. My other friend would call me a nerd for meeting a person on a have to do assignment?!

4. My one other friend judges who I date...then ends up liking him, hitting on him, or even hanging out with him.

5. If I ever liked someone then my friend who also likes him, would always say “he’s mine and you’ll never get him.” But I don’t even want to fight, if he chooses my friend then that’s ok! I would just want him to be happy.

6. My friends lie abt themselves to me to look better then me.

I don't know where this saying came from but it goes something like this..." When you die and look back on your life, count up the true friends you have had. If you have enough true friends to to fill up one hand then you are one of the most blessed and wealthiest of people. If you have a couple of fingers left over but still have a friend or two to count then you should still consider yourself wealthy beyond words for friendship, true friendship is a treasure beyond value." Most people make it thru life and have one, maybe two people they can consider a true friend. When you find them, you will know. And you will treasure them. And if they are in fact a true friend they will treasure you as well. So be patient and look for that friend in places you might not think to look, you might be surprised.

The old adage comes to mind: 'You can choose your friends, but not your family'. And the other one, where some friends are 'fair-weather' friends, only. and! "A friend in need is a friend in deed'. I can count my dearest, closest friends on one hand. Have met hundreds of thousands of people in my life, but my REAL friends have lifted my spirits when they needed to be lifted, have been honest with me even when honesty hurt a little bit, and have always, no matter what, why or when, had my back.

My friend has severe depression. She, although she is struggling and not in a great mental state, strives to be the best person. She meets my needs instead of hers. It makes me sad, but I’m glad to have such a devoted friend. She stayed up late making me a character based off of twenty one pilots for my birthday this year. I keep telling her that she’s already awesome and that I love her no matter what, but she doesn’t really listen. It makes me sad that she would beat herself up to fit into what she thinks is the mold of a perfect friend for me, when in reality I don’t have one and I love her no matter what.

Probably supporting me through my coming out, believing in me, boosting my confidence when i needed it, coming to everyone of my plays, reading the same books as me so we can talk about it, and most importantly, my best friend taught me that i have impossibly high standards and people can't read my mind. That really helped me realize why I was never happy and why people kept leaving me. I was never the same since but in a good way!

Well, I was in a very bad place after a whole year of being bullied on top of my own problems. Some lied about one person that I was close with, to me. Considering how bad a place I was in, I believed the lies.

The best thing a friend did for me was them to forgive me after all that. We are really good friends now.
