How to survive friendships!


This post is gonna be about how to build good friendships and maybe a few ideas on how to make those friendships stronger.

Let's get started!

Sharing Is Caring
So your friends have other friends that aren’t you!?!?!? How dare they! Honestly, these people aren’t your enemies! Your friends are allowed to have social groups outside of school or work. Let’s set the scene: you’re invited to your friend’s birthday party but…DUN DUN DUUUUNNNNN… you don’t know anybody who’s there! Don’t panic! What you need to do is smile, chat try and come up with things that people might have in common with you, don’t worry about what they might think of you. Be confident and be polite ( don’t let them know how weird you might be until you end up best friends cos trust me I’ve scared a few people away in the past, eeekkk)! When it comes to friends…the more the merrier!

Respect Your Friends
In the past people have “made fun” of me for putting my hand up in lessons or actually wanting to do the work. And as a result of this I've been called “geeky”. What I think when I see someone getting high grades or thriving in lessons is : WOW! That person is contributing in class and is getting positive things from it and actually, I can do that too! They’re role models to everyone and you should surround yourselves with these types of people rather than negative friends that always look on the downside!

Don’t Be Afraid To Share
If you've got a friend that you can trust or even lots of friends ( if you’re lucky) then telling them how you are feeling will make you feel so much better! It’s more than likely that they’ve experienced the same thing and sharing this stuff with them will make your friendship wayyyyy stronger. If you can’t already, learn how to keep a secret,…SECRET! ( as long as it doesn't put anyone at risk ).Trust me, your friends will respect you more if you listen to what they have to say and don’t spread rumours. It is soso important to make your friends feel like they can tell you anything.

Try New Things
Don’t judge people on the way they do things, or the way they think or the way they LIVE! Let people have their own opinions. That’s the point of life, everyone’s different! What you should do is read the book your friend recommended or try the food they like. Even try their favourite loo roll if that’s something they’re very passionate about! P.S. don’t try anything that could have bad consequences!

Accept Each Other
Okay okay, there will always be one or two people in your group that you’ll probably never have a connection with. You might argue a bit or you might just ignore each other from time to time. But that does not mean you bully them or try to force them out of the group. Instead accept that you are never going to be close friends, learn to understand we are all different, but can still get along.

Giving A Compliment
Yes, it is possible. But too many people nowadays “forget” ( yeah right ) to be nice to each other. You could make somebody’s day soooo much better by just mentioning how nice their hair looks today or if their outfit looks good. AND if you are the type of person who really can’t say anything nice then twist the truth just a tiny winy bit just to make someone feel better about themselves. It doesn't cost anything! Also, learn to take a compliment! People are trying to be nice so accept it and say thankyou! 

I hope some of these tips help and let me know if you have any other ideas or opinions about friendships.

see you later, byeeee x
