Women’s friendships can be messy and complicated, but the thought of losing my trip or dying is unbearable.

“Pearl is my best friend,” the three-year-old used to say. And sometimes, while fainting a little: “Oh, I love her so much.” Pearl’s mother told me that feeling was shared by both of us. They paint each other’s pictures, insist on dating each other, and one won’t start her GAA training until the other is ready. Their friendship is one that is not as complicated and endearing as you might hope to find. I was even more nervous, I was worried about how it would stand the test of time – new school, different activities, newer friends. This simple, uncomplicated yet enjoyable friendship reminds me of my first best friend and my first great loss.

ree and I were close as toddlers: almost literally, neighbors. There are photo albums filled with pictures of us playing, singing and dancing, giving each other steamy kisses, celebrating birthdays together. One day, when I was about four years old, I walked into her house – a place almost as familiar as my own – and found it empty. I can still remember the moment it was revealed that the family was moving to the next town. To think no one asked me if I was okay with this. That was the first time I realized that things don’t always go your way in life and things can disappear from you even if you don’t want to. In the scheme of things, people – and especially children – experience much greater trauma, but this one, I feel deeply. I remember her dad sitting on the only armchair left, casually watching my hysteria and fury (he was also eating an apple to the seed, and more than anything, I was worried. about a tree growing in his stomach).

It is because of the intimacy and intensity between female friends that they can sometimes be cruel to each other.
