Hello my Lovelies,
I hope you are all having a lovely day. So I got some exciting news on Monday as Huggle got in contact with me to do a collaboration post on Friendship, So as you can probably tell i was truly excited to be getting the chance to talk about Friendship as its a subject that we all like to have a good chat about, So with out further a do here it is.......
Friendship is one of the most important things in our lives and Huggle has asked me to write about what i think makes a good friend, Huggle is a social app which helps you to discover and connect with people who go to the places you go. It's a wonderful app for making friends and meeting like-minded people. You can download it here.
After spending today chatting over lovely food with one of my best friends this has put me in the best mind to sit down and talk to you all about friendship. I believe that friendship is part of who we are as people. I feel we were put on this planet to make our journey throughout friendship, however sometimes friendships lasts and some sadly leave our lives too, but its ok it only means you've had that time with that person, be it good or bad. Personally I feel you 'loose some you win some' its a saying i have always lived by as i have experienced it myself throughout my journey throughout friendship where i have lost friendships and I have gained some amazing friendships.
From experience I have had it all from Childhood Friendships to Loosing Friends and to gaining Friends for Life. But one thing i do no for sure is that you need a friend, There is no perfect formula that creates a good friend, it doesn't matter what shape or form friends come in, they can truly make an amazing difference to your life in so many way's. Also it doesn't matter how many friends you have, if you have one good friend who you can talk to, share your problems and above all support you through difficult times then you know you have a friend for life. Having friends is amazing as you can share anything (well maybe not everything) but certain things that you can't talk to your Family about and above all else they are not there to judge you but to support you.
I myself have had amazing friendships, one of which would be one of my Childhood Friendships, where i made friends with one friend when we were in Junior Infants Class (you know who you are) and 26 years later we are still the best of friends. Although we may go 3 to 4 months without speaking to each other which is down to our hectic lives we still mange a catch up over coffee and have a great chat. I feel a friendship like this one really stands out as been an amazing one as she has been always there for me when i need to talk or if i need a favour or two. But she will always know no matter what happens or how hectic our lives our we will always be best friends.
Even throughout the likes of School and College it can be really hard to keep friendships going especially if your friends are not going to the same School/College as you and i have experienced that myself in which I lost a few friends as they ended up going to a different Schools/Colleges, which made it quite hard to keep in touch. But I have to be honest even though i lost friends i actually gained some really amazing ones throughout my School and College years, which like my first ever Childhood friendship they have lasted and I am proud to call them my Best Friends.
Below is a list of the different types of Friendships there is. I myself have went over each categories and i have singled out certain people who i feel fall into these categories and the impact they have had on my life.
Family aren't just your family they are your friends too and they are probably your closest excepted you probably don't know it yet
This categorie is for those people you grew up with and made the earliest of memories with. You might have been born around the same time as them and you feel as though you're always going to be best friends as you don't know life without them.
Your partner can be not only your partner but your friend too as you chose to be with them.
The people you work with on a daily basics, if you're really lucky you may get on really well with those you work with and build good friendships with them. Also with out your work friends how would you get through the day.....
Loads of people adore their own pets and talk to them like they are there friends. I myself have 3 Dogs and 2 Cats, and I sometimes find myself talking to them like there real humans
Throughout my Adulthood i have made many Friendships and I luck forward to making more as i go through life!!
That Friend for Life
Its really nice to think that we have that one amazing friend that we know is going to be in our life forever no matter what happens. A friend that you can go for weeks without talking to and when you eventually meet up its like nothing ever changed
Within my Friendships I have known my Childhood Friend a long time compared to my other Best Friends, but I wouldn't treat them any different from my Childhood Friend as they are all equal and are totally different in there own ways. I admire my Friends for who they are and what they are, they keep me grounded and I know that their always there when i need to talk to them or if i have problem that I need to share. Without them I would be nothing!!
I really do have some amazing friends that i wouldn't swap for the world, ones i have know for the majority of my life, ones that i spent a number of years in School and College with and others that i have only known for the past year or two. I value all types of friendships and you should too, and if your reading this and thinking of someone or a friend why not drop them a text or give them a call.
" A strong friendship doesn't need daily conversation or being together. As long as the relationship lies in the heart, true friends never part"
I would love to know what you think of friendship and what it means to you, leave me a comment below as to what you think!!!
