The Power Of Friendship In This Generation

My life would be incomplete without friendship.

My whole life has only been surrounded by my family, school, and my friends. Friendship has been a very important part of my life. I live very far away from my family, some are in India and some in Canada. So I don't really have that much family to spend time with. It's not fun but I've had a lot of my friends say that they hate having all of their family here around them. So they always thought I was lucky, even though it can be sometimes not fun because there's nothing you can do. That's where friendships come into play. This article is going to be a bit different than how I usually post listing every picture, but I took these pictures last year and every picture symbolisms something I personally look into which I think of friendship.

1. Similarities, we all connect when we have something in common.

When you start to make a friendship, there's always this one subject that gets the friendship to a start. That's having similarities, so you connect within that idea.

2. Always there for each other.

We always need someone at our highest and lowest point of life. That's true friendship when a friend is there for you in your happiest and saddest points in life to motivate you and be even more happy for you.

3. Trust gets you everything.

In every relationship we look for trust, honest because that's the key to having a great relationship, just as in friendship. You need to share everything only if you have trust.

4. Supporting each others dreams.

The motivational texts that I get from my friends are literally all that I need in order to keep pushing to get my dreams to be a reality. That little support gets me anywhere.

5. Keeping in touch.

Ever since I graduated it's been hard to stay connected with friends, but the ones that want to keep in touch will try there best to stay connected. Even in this generation, we can stay connected with our friends.

6. Spending quality time

Just the little Dunkin Donuts and Kroger trips, I would do after every school event with my friends give me life. Its just about get hot chocolate and just say whatever is happening in your life that just make me happy and relief about life.

7. Getting through things together.

Life is really unpredictable you don't know what's going to happen. Sometimes sharing your problems, not hoping to get a solution in return, but still taking out the problem helps. That's what friends are for, getting everything out otherwise you will kill yourself.

I Know She's My Forever Friend

A forever friend is one of the most important people in your world.

The bond that my forever friend and I have is something that I do not have with any other person in the world. This is a list of ways you know that you have a forever friend:

You never get tired of being around her

She is probably the only person in your life that hasn't begun to bother you for some reason or another, at some point in time. You could spend hours, or days, with her. Even the smallest things you do together are fun because you are with her.

No subject is off-limits

You tell each other everything, and I mean, everything.

Thinking about seeing each other over break

And of course, when you do see her

Your family is her family, and her family is yours

It's not weird for you to be at her house all the time, show up at strange hours, or just decide to spend the night even though you live three houses away. And of course, her family welcomes you in like you are another one of their daughters.

You two have a bizarre sense of humor that only you understand

Whether it is the nights you spend watching random YouTube videos at 2 a.m. that make you both laugh so hard you cry or the commercials on TV that are only funny to the both of you, only you guys understand the humor in certain situations. You have probably experienced some of the most embarrassing moments together, and if not together, then you got a vivid story of the event.

You have no filter when she is being overdramatic

You pick up where you left off

If you and your forever friend are anything like me and mine, we do not talk every single day. You may only speak once a week, but it will give you the opportunity to catch up and talk like you have talked every single day. There may be quick conversations to see how the other is doing because you know you are saving all of the important stories for when you see each other again. At this point, conversations don't even start with "Hi" anymore, you just jump right to the point and tell her what you need to.

You really don't have a choice when she needs to go to the mall

She would do anything to make you smile

Even when you are feeling down, your forever friend knows just the right thing to do to make you happy again. Whatever the case is, she will be there for you always. She will say, and do, just about anything that will make everything better.

And sometimes she just needs a reminder…

Outgrowing Friendships Is A Necessary Part Of Life

Let go of a friendship that was not meant to last.

Why do friendships naturally begin to gravitate away from each other? Why is there an emptiness within the bond that used to be filled with excessive passion? Why does effort suddenly disappear? Why do we lose the pieces that once kept us together? At times I find myself unable to look at people who were a part of my past without tears fill my eyes to the point of exhaustion simply thinking of the friendship we used to possess. There are many moments I cannot understand why, when, and how we ended up going in different directions. It seems impossible to release the specialness we once shared. I cannot fathom how we have been walking in parallel routes without even a glimpse of each other. I wonder if there's anything I could have improved upon to save us. Or were we not meant to be rescued?

Appreciate that you are engaging in internal growth, even if it is at the cost of separation from those you love deeply.

The timelines of our lives do not always match with those around us. Sometimes as we fall into the pits of despair, our friends find inescapable love. Sometimes as our friends grieve burdensome pains, we begin to visualize ourselves in a new light. As our pathways begin to part due to our progressions and setbacks occurring at diverse times, we fail to acknowledge the extents of our personal developments because we are too invested in analyzing a friendship that was not meant to last. When we lose such friendships we take our strengths for granted. We fail to think of the person we have become throughout the course of these attachments.

Do not overthink distanced friendships or it will lead you to endless self-doubt and unneeded frustration.

We drive ourselves insane by shifting such blame upon ourselves when we are left on an empty road full of questions. Such questions will What could I have done to create such a disconnect within this friendship? Did I say something so exceedingly wrong to cause this hurtful shift? Did I bother this person with an unintentional act of thoughtlessness? Could I have been a greater friend? When we question, we doubt ourselves in ways we do not deserve. Recognition is needed to conquer the unsettling thought that there is not always a reason for everything.

As you find yourself contemplating if the connection still remains, acknowledge that the underlying meaning of this contemplation means that the bond has disappeared. As life changes, people change, and as people change, their most valued friendships come to a close due to the similarities fading. Although this is a saddening concept to grasp, it is one that everyone should be prepared to experience. Sometimes there is no reason behind a dying connection aside from the interruptions life brings. We wrongly search for an exact understanding of why specific friendships do not feel as exciting or as effort-filled as they once were. But rather, we must seek to appreciate a friendship for all that it has consisted of, and learn to be OK with the fact that some relationships are not designed to be repaired when all that is left to discuss is the past versions of ourselves.
