The title above is a song from Janet Jackson, and I have no clue why I know it. This is something my dad would listen to. (no offense daddy!) However it’s a message that I believe in. On ask.fm I asked suggestions on what to blog about, and one suggested friends. I thought, I don’t think anyone would want to hear about friends because we all have them. But it seemed like a pretty interesting topic to write about. So here it goes!
Because of my shy personality, I was never really good at making friends. Lucky for me, I have some. Is it only me or is it pretty awkward at first? You introduce yourself, constantly thinking what to say next and since we’re in the 21st century, we follow each other on Twitter, Instagram and all those sorts of stuff. Other than that, I wouldn’t really talk at all. My mom teases me for not having much friends, because compared to my brothers, I have waaay less. But it’s alright because I’m more than happy hanging out with people who I can be myself around even if they’re just a little.
Along the same lines is popularity. I don’t consider myself to be one of the popular people in school. And I’m totally fine with it. It seems pretty cool to have loads of friends but it was never something I really wanted even up to this day. So here’s what I say- If you’re popular, you are! If you’re not it isn’t a bad thing at all :). My barkada (group of friends) always keep me grounded.
About the fights and arguments, no one really likes them. Here’s what my mom told me: If those friends are important to you, patience. You or your friend will come around some day. However if they’re not important, let them be. Find new friends! I was told that later on in the future, we will look back and laugh at all of our major fights and arguments. I hope that’s correct! So if you’re annoyed at someone, just shake it off. Start over again with a clean plate.
I’m quite sure everyone has heard about a ‘real’ or ‘true’ friend. I don’t think I need to explain what they are. And they really are one of the best things in life. Everyone of us have friends, and that’s something we should all be thankful for. So to my family, school friends and skating family, thank you. My last post for the year of 2013 ends with this very happy topic. Cheers to the year 2014! Time to have greater bonds with the people we already met, and have new people come into our lives with the years ahead of us. Happy New Years in a few hours!
