They might be crazy, but you love 'em.

Don't you hate going out with your loud, outgoing, sometimes obnoxious, often wildly free-spirited friend? The one that doesn't pay attention to any of the social norms, has no problem walking up to the guy at the club telling him that you (yes, you, shy friend) want to dance with him, or the one that is peeing outside the club just ten feet away from the bouncers. The ones that just stick a fork in your birthday cake to grab a bite. That wear their girlfriend's glasses because they can't find their own.

They have no problem being themselves, whatever that they mean, even if it sometimes does seem... unconventional. They usually are just living in the moment, living in their present and doing what seems right to them. Sometimes you might even catch yourself admiring how genuine they are to themselves. It's not hard to notice when they are around, as they are ever living for the moment.

1. They go hard no matter where you are.

It doesn't matter if you're at your little brother's baseball game or at the pep rally, they will be crazy, make a scene and bring as much attention to you as possible. It could be the most boring game in the world, but you know you will have a good time when they are there. Or an embarrassing time if this person is your mom.

2. Their reactions are always authentic.

The good thing is you know that they're always honest. They'd never try to impress you and you know that their reaction is always the real thing since they can't lie for the life of them. They might overreact sometimes, but it's with good intention.

3. They make the best coworkers.

Work is always entertaining if you have a personality like this there, as they'll be blunt and upfront about whatever they're thinking, which is usually hilarious. You know that they'll always keep it real with you.

4. They feel no need to answer to anyone.

If you ask them questions about their personal life, proceed with caution since you will most likely not get a straight answer and they will respond with something vague. If they are doing well you'll probably know it, but if they aren't, they are masters of entertainment and therefore changing the subject.

5. It's always the little things that excite them.

You could be at the mall shopping and a headband could be $4 instead of $8 and they'll get excited about it. It could be that class ended at 6:58 instead of 7:00 and they can find gratitude in that.

6. They can make any situation awkward.

Because they can just be themselves so well with no cares, they have no issue intervening in situations that they really could be minding their business about. They will photobomb, prank and be silly at any appropriate, or inappropriate, time.

These friends are people to be grateful for. They make you feel more comfortable being yourself, too, which is always a blessing in this superficial, surface level society.

To the girl who always feels left out,

Girl, let me just tell you, I know the feeling. It feels as though my whole life, I have been that girl. You know that feeling when you are standing in a group of people and someone comes up and asks everyone to go to lunch in that group... But you?

Or they make it even worse by saying "Oh, I guess you can come too." You guess I can come to?

No, thank you.

At that point, you feel like the only reason you are being invited is that they feel like they have to. Which more than likely is actually the case. What about when you ask your friend to hang out and she can't because she will be doing homework all night? However, an hour later, you see her with your other best friend. Oh okay cool, sorry for bothering you with my friendship.

You know you are the girl who is always left out when you are the designated "photographer" or you have to specifically ask if you can take a picture with them because they are obviously done taking pictures and did not want one with you.

We all know "Hey, will you take this picture of us?" all too well. Am I right, ladies? Oh yeah, it is fine. I hate being in pictures. I definitely hate taking pictures to remember this wonderful time I'm having.

What about when you and your friends discuss doing something later during the week and you ask about it but "It's probably not happening anymore." Then you check and would you look at that, your "friends" are having fun without you.

Shocker.

Oh but don't worry about it, I had things to do anyway. You know, clean the house, work on homework that is due next week, binge-watch The Office for the third time this week. Fun stuff. Oh and better yet when you see your friends are hanging out without you. The next time they see you, they talk about how much fun they had.

Oh yes, please tell me about how much fun you had without me. I totally enjoy hearing about how "I totally missed out" and "I should have come." Well, an invite would have been well appreciated. But maybe next time, right? Wrong.


Yeah, I know what you are thinking, "Wow this girl is being so petty." Well if you are thinking that, then you obviously do not know the feeling. And to think about it, you probably are not the one in the friend group who is being left out. So think about who that person is and make them feel included next time. It would be greatly appreciated. You do not know how much of a difference it could make.

Yes, I know everyone feels left out sometimes, but time after time, it starts to get really old. Then after you have to start inviting yourself to hang out with people, you realize well since they are not inviting me themselves, maybe they don't want me here. And then surprisingly, you stop hanging out with them. Hmmm, I wonder what could've possibly happened.


Yes, I know, most people do not do this on purpose. I am sure I have even done it once or twice without realizing it, and I am truly sorry.

From one left out girl to another,

Good Luck
