I have been best friend with Amy for almost six years. The bond between the two of us is so deep at times it's scary. It even reached a point where I knew what she was thinking before she had a chance to say anything out loud. We were constantly together having a great time! Often people who met us together thought we were sisters and confused our names. In a weird sense we were sisters, minus the DNA connection. It's odd, things had been this way from the moment we met; yet somehow in the last six months everything has shifted. I'm at a turning point in my mind, should I give CPR to this dying friendship or cut my losses while I still can? This decision not only affects Amy, but our families and mutual friends as well. I have to decide which direction our friendship will go next.We have seen each other almost every day for the last four years. The longest time we spent apart was a week. In the same sense, if we couldn't see each other we talked on the phone. When one of us found out or had something exciting /sad experience, we couldn't wait to share it with one another. I know everything there is to know about my best friend, but it's a little different when it comes to me. I have to be cautious about the amount information I tell Amy. She leans towards the judgmental side. I realize she has nothing to offer but good intentions, yet she tends to be overpowering and childish.Amy and I may be alike in many ways via music, boys, and humor, but there are a few things that make us different. If I had to sum up our differences in one phrase, I would say: Amy has all the money I could ever need and I have all the motivation that she needs. I graduated high school a year early and moved out a week after my 17th birthday. Since then, I have worked a full time, dead end job that I manage to stretch in order to pay all of my bills. The only part of my life that I have received help with is my car. Everything else falls under my own responsibility. I'm paying for my own education and graduating on time is extremely important to me. I set high standard for myself with all these goals and ambitions that I intend to accomplish in the next few years.With all that said, I fully support myself. In that same breath there are many times when I don't have any extra money. When I first decided to move out, my father told me, 'once I left, I couldn't come back home.' People tend shake their head in disbelief, but I really, honestly can not go back home after the day I left. Of course there have been many times when I wanted to go home, but that isn't an option. My parents do love me and would undoubtedly help if I was ever in serious trouble; however my father is making me learn my lesson. In all honesty, I appreciate it.Amy seems very independent, but it a charade the majority the time. Her parents are exceptionally wealthy. Currently, they are in the middle of getting a divorce, in which Amy plays sides. She has many designer things, most of which one item could...
