In life, if you’re looking for friends you won’t find many, you will see that they are scarce, but if you go out to be a friend, you will find them everywhere.
My suggestion to you if you’re willing to have a group of friends, find a group who challenges you and inspires you; spend a lot of time with them, it will change your life.
So, the blog is more about friends, we’re gonna talk about them, how friends change your life and the different types of friends you should have at least in your life.
Yes, friends affect you.
Your company can affect you, either in a positive way or in a negative way. If we are in a good company, interacting and conversation sessions can bring the best out of us. They can help you in realizing your true potential. But, if you have the kind of friends who just gossip around and drink their nights out, the same is gonna happen to you as well, choose your company wisely.
Just a few real ones are enough.
It is a fact needed to be learned in life that you don’t need a big circle of friends, all it matters is how big their heart is. More friends simply mean more small talks, and to be honest, don’t be interested in small talks! I prefer deep conversations to small talk, small talk just sucks out life, it is better to have a few friends and have deep conversations about life and about dreams of life instead of dreams they saw last night.
Life changes over time, friends as well.
Life is like a train, it is a long journey, we first boarded this train when we were born and we found love from our family. Just as we move forward with the journey there are other people who board this train, these are friends, who eventually become very important to us, in turn. Some people on this train will leave an everlasting impression when they get off, some people will quickly get on and get off the train so quickly, they will scarcely leave a sign that they ever traveled along the way with us or ever crossed our path. The journey is filled with setbacks, heartaches, sorrows, but also with happiness, love, and memories.
Everyone has a journey to complete and they cannot stay with us forever, so we should use our memories, but we should never let the memories use us. Friends will change with time, of course, it’s great if you have one or two constant friends, but not to believe that they will always be with you.
Have friends like stars.
Just because during the daytime we cannot see the stars doesn’t mean they are not there, just like that, have friends with whom you don’t need to talk every day, but whenever you will need them they will be there for you even if it is 5 AM. Make the kind of friends with whom you can have breakfast or call at 2 AM and not bothering to ask if you disturbed them, these are the friends to have and cherish in life. If you have even just 1 friend like this, it’s enough, know that you’re blessed to have him or her in your life.
Different types of friends you should have.
I told you in the starting to have a group of friends that inspires you and challenges you to get better, it’s important, a friend who can make you realize your true potential, who is brutally honest to you and the one who can remind you not to go back to your ex over and over again, a friend who can be your mentor, a friend to chill with and a friend to go on adventure with. Have multiple if not one, because it’s hard to find all the qualities in just one, but if you do, you’re literally blessed, my friend. Your friends don’t need to have the same hobbies or passion just as you have, but it’s important that they remind you who you are, but I know, it’s not always work, work and work, it’s important to have someone to chill with, otherwise, it’s gonna get depressing, isn’t it?
In the end, I would like to remind you that it’s not in your control who comes in your life and goes, but one thing that you have in control that whoever that comes in your life you can show a little extra love and care to them, remember that train of life I was talking about? We all are on our journey, our friends, parents, brothers, sisters, etc. And, we won’t be ending with the same baggage that we started with, make sure you contribute something special in your friends’ baggage and enrich their lives.
Understand your friends and look for the best in them, at any point in their life they can have a weak moment and be in need of help, help them. You too may vacillate or hesitate or even trip along the way, you will also have someone supportive and understanding in those times, yes, that’s what friends are there for.
