What makes a perfect ride or die? 

What a ride or die shouldn’t be is someone who sticks around an unhealthy, toxic relationship.

If they aren’t treating you right, let go of them.

This goes for both friendships and romantic relationships.

A ride or die relationship should be healthy and mutually beneficial.

One of my ride or dies is my sister.

She’s always been there for me–whether as a shoulder to cry on or a sounding board to bounce off ideas.

We can tell each other anything and everything–which is vital.

She makes my life better; that’s why she’s my ride or die.
