So, we've all heard the saying "No new Friends" by now right? Well if you haven't, the saying started from a song by the artist "Drake" and became a cliche saying. I've seen t-shirts made with the saying, people are using it as a hash-tag quote under pictures etc.
Now, in my opinion...for the purpose of the song it's cool but to apply it to your life not so cool. I say that because I don't understand the big deal when it comes to making new friends? Meeting new people helps you evolve and may even open your eyes up to some things you may not have known before. Meeting new friends doesn't mean you're no longer loyal to your old friends at all. It's simply called growing!! Now depending on the person, you may experience that friend or friends that think of you as being "brand new" or may say you've changed because you've found a new liking in another person that has now grown to be your friend. If that happens, that is their problem and insecurity not yours! Don't ever allow someone else's view of another person steer you from getting your own perception of them. You have to remember in life it's your journey not anyone else's!!
Another thing about friends or so called friends shall I say...If your friend doesn't care for a person you have no problem with, again....that's their problem not yours! Your friend is telling you their version of what may have taken place why they don't care for that person and remember there's always three sides to one story, your friends side, the other person's side and the truth! Being loyal to that friendship does not mean you have to like and dislike ONLY the people they like and dislike! If you go off of someone else's perception or experience with a particular person, you may just be blocking your blessing!! As adults you have to make adult decisions and you do that simply by making your own! If your friend chooses to no longer be your friend because you have become friends with someone they don't care for, guess what? They were never your friend in the first place! I can only speak for myself but I can truly say that my new friends have been nothing but blessings to my life! Had I not met them I wouldn't have been exposed to different cultures, business ventures, new appreciations of life etc! If you surround yourself with the dreamers and doers, the believers, the positive thinkers and most importantly those who see greatness within you even when you don't see it in yourself, life will be just fine!
As I've mentally grown and matured, I've realized that it's not important to have lots of friends but it's definitely very important to have real friends!
So instead of saying "No new friends"....how about you say...No fake friends"!!
Life is about learning, loving, exploring and living so do just that and welcome new friends!!
Until next time and as always...Thanks for checking my blog: TwithTally!
