Back-to-school: How to make Friends

Can't you believe summers coming to an end!? And more importantly, schools about to arrive so I decided to take this topic to help those who are about to start or just give advice in general. 

Making friends is really simple. All you need are good manners and a sense of right and wrong. These two are highly suggested because they'll take you to the right direction for yourself. 

When meeting people, always give off a good impression. If you don't, this could be a start of a new enemy and nobody wants that. A basic technique to start off is to smile. Showing someone a smile can brighten up anyone's day. So, take this opportunity to show off your beautiful grin and it will definitely lead you to the right direction. Be creative when greeting people. I know just saying hi and asking their name is the easiest way, but you don't have to do that. Find ways to introduce yourself like suggesting a game where each of you has to guess their name, offering them a nice gesture, or telling them a joke/riddle. Great way to build up your friendship and allowing them to learn about your personality. 

Okay, we know how to greet someone in a nice way, but let's talk about finding the right people. School is a place where most kids have all the drama and it doesn't even have to be at school. Our society is made up of dirty back-stabbers and friendly kindred spirits. So, you gotta distinguish these two. It can be hard choosing the right friends because there may be second thoughts. But the one thing you have to keep in mind is that if they bring you down and you feel uncomfortable around them then they are totally not the people you wanna stick with. Other signs to look for: 

Humiliate 
Shaming 
Criticize 
Hating 
Blaming 
Pressuring 
Demmanding 

Also, remember to check your feelings. If you feel less confident or unhappy then they should be out of your life. It's you first not your friends. 

Last thing I wanna share is how to be out of the circle. It can be hard leaving your friends because you may be having second thoughts like you'll feel lonely or they'll treat you as an enemy. And that's fine really. Excluding them out of your zone means more time for yourself. It sounds depressing, but it's a great way to catch up on things you miss like hobbies or studies. Once you've recollected yourself, this is a good time to meet newer people. Remembering what happen to your previous relationships can help you understand what to expect on the next one. Know that you don't have to be the #1 kind girl in the world. There will be so many haters out there, but if you have the right people by your side then it won't matter. Having one good friend is better than having hundreds of fake friends. 

I hope this post lets you learn something new about friendship. If you can relate to any of these or have experience something like this, do tell me. Because sharing is caring!

  4. Such perfect advice! I think sometimes observing people and how they make you feel is one of the best ways to tell if they are the people you want to be around.

  10. And i'm back.

    yeah i wish I knew someone like you when *i* was in high school huh! what! I'm fortunate enough to have made some kind friends but I still remember the backstabbers.... -______- *gives them the dirty look*. There was this girl who was friends with people I was friends with. She hated me because she didn't like shy guys, she thought shy guys were all gay and wuss (her own words). So she would always give me the middle finger and stuff as I walked by just randomly. It made all of us quite uncomfortable.

    She got expelled lolol. Skipped school too many times and had really bad grades and the school kicked her out. Ended up at another school over an hour away and had to bus forever to get home everyday I heard. by the time she came back I had already graduated.

    And that is my story for the day.

  11. This advice is so important, I think that especially negative friends can be pretty toxic for your own happiness because they are usually the people closest to you!

  12. Love the advice, I have a lot of trouble making "good" friends. I've realized that a lot of my friends do make me feel less confident about myself...
