In 1976, the rock band Queen graced radio stations with their hit single You're My Best Friend. It quickly became a success because of its positive and inspirational lyrics about a true friendship.
The song is a touching declaration about a love between two friends – or lovers, depending on how it's interpreted – who know they'll be companions for life.
"I've been with you such a long time / You're my sunshine / And I want you to know / That my feelings are true / I really love you / You're my best friend," sang rock legend Freddie Mercury.
You're My Best Friend is a reminder of what a true confidant should be: uplifting, inspiring, motivating and caring. Even the happy melody of the song makes the listener feel as though they are floating on clouds with not a care in the world.
Ilchi Lee believes that a best friend should help an individual on their journey toward awakening and fulfillment. This friend should not be taken for granted, for they are special beings put on this Earth to provide guidance and support.
