Friendships

There’s something quite endearing about a good friendship. Friends make up the people in our lives. They are a source of companionship. They bring you together. They are the people you put your trust in. They are your confidants. They also often represent the type of person you are. They play a significant role in your behavior. For me, a good friend can be like second family to you. Over the years, I have noticed a pattern in my friendships. I tend to be the social floater. When your young, people tend to want to box you up in cliques (especially in middle school and high school). I have never been apart of one clique. For starters, I never want to be tied down to one group of people. In fact, all my life I have been involved with multiple groups of people. I try to be every ones friend. Recently, as I moved to a new school I have found it quite difficult to make friends. Thus, I still hang out with the people that I know. However, one of my New Year’s resolutions is to make more new friends. I’m one of those people who make a lot of acquaintances and casual friends. Unfortunately, I find it hard to make a lot of close friends. Despite my lack of close friends, I have observed throughout my life that it is better to have a few close friends than a lot of poor quality friends. Friends come and go but having a close knit group of people is something beneficial to everyone. I’ll leave with this. What are some of the ways in which you can make new friends? Feel free  to comment.

Sincerely,
