The 8 Types Of People That Make Up Your Friend Group

They can make stubbing their toe a production to rival a novella.

In life there are many types of cliques: the athletes, the bookworms, the geniuses, the loner, and the list could go on infinitely. In each of these cliques, there are different types of people and these are their stories. See if you can find yourself!

1. Positive Polly

This friend is always doing their best to spread happiness, love, and rainbows. They rarely have a bad thing to say about anyone and when they do, it's probably needed. Their goal in life is to change the world, whether it be by working with people or animals. But, most of all, they are the best person to go to when you need a shoulder to lean on or a bit of advice.

2.The Drama Queen

They can make an accident, like stubbing their toe, into a production that rivals the content quality of a novella. Not to say that sometimes things don't require tears, they love looking their best and like to tell everyone about the stupid people at their job on social media. No matter the amount of drama they bring into your life you love them because they will and have offered to beat someone up for you if you have been wronged.

3. The Country One

You never see this person because they wear camouflage so often (sorry, that was a bad pun). They were part of FFA in high school and love their truck. They love country music and every time music is needed they offer and are quickly turned down. Don't worry though, they'll always be there to a shoulder to cry on or if you just need someone to talk to.

4. The Evil Genius

They always had A's, but they knew not to tell everyone, which is why you're friends. This person scares me. Not because they have a fear-striking outward appearance, but because you know that if they really wanted to they have enough knowledge to, if they really wanted to, make the world implode. They'll probably be the first to come up with an epic revenge plan if needed.

5. Van Gogh

This is the artist. They could take a pile of garbage and make it into a masterpiece. No matter the medium they always dominate. You wish you could have their artistic ability. Half their clothes have paint on them and when you point it out they'll probably not even know how that got there.

6. Glitz and Glam

They love everything pink and sparkly. If it glimmers, she wants it. They are the princess and they know it. They still work for what they want. They always have their hair and makeup done to perfection and get countless compliments. Basically, they make you and everyone else look like a shrub...all the time. Their expertise is knowing who did what, when, and where, this makes them the best person to go to to get info.

7. ???

This person can't have title because they are all over the place. They are very easily distracted and sometimes walk in front of cars. Their life has been saved more than once by a random person because they were simply not paying attention. They dabble in a little bit of everything and can never make up their mind, but they are always the first person to crack a joke or make a fool of themselves to cheer someone up.

8. The Bonus Friend!!

The random person that you don't know where along the line that they became part of the friend group. They just kind of appeared one day and you didn't even realize that they weren't there, to begin with. But, whatever, the more friends, the merrier!

Did you find all your friends? Did you find yourself? If not, its okay, that just means you are unique. The point here was that even though everyone is different, in a way, we all are the same.

To The Dad Who Didn't Want Me, It's Mutual Now

Thank you for leaving me because I am happy.

Thank you, for leaving me.

Thank you, for leaving me when I was little.

Thank you, for not putting me through the pain of watching you leave.

Thank you, for leaving me with the best mother a daughter could ask for.

I no longer resent you. I no longer feel anger towards you. I wondered for so long who I was. I thought that because I didn't know half of my blood that I was somehow missing something. I thought that who you were defined me. I was wrong. I am my own person. I am strong and capable and you have nothing to do with that. So thank you for leaving me.

In my most vulnerable of times, I struggled with the fact that you didn't want me. You could have watched me grow into the person that I have become, but you didn't. You had a choice to be in my life. I thought that the fact that my own father didn't want me spoke to my own worth. I was wrong. I am so worthy. I am deserving, and you have nothing to do with that. So thank you for leaving me.

You have missed so much. From my first dance to my first day of college, and you'll continue to miss everything. You won't see me graduate, you won't walk me down the aisle, and you won't get to see me follow my dreams. You'll never get that back, but I don't care anymore. What I have been through, and the struggles that I have faced have brought me to where I am today, and I can't complain. I go to a beautiful school, I have the best of friends, I have an amazing family, and that's all I really need.

Whoever you are, I hope you read this. I hope you understand that you have missed out on one of the best opportunities in your life. I could've been your daughter. I could have been your little girl. Now I am neither, nor will I ever be.

So thank you for leaving me because I am happy. I understand my self-worth, and I understand that you don't define me. You have made me stronger. You have helped make me who I am without even knowing it.

So, thank you for leaving me.

An Open Letter To The Friend Who Continues To Save My Life

No one knows me like you do.


From the day we became friends, we have always had nothing but support for one another. Although we have only really been friends for about seven years now, I feel as if you have always been a part of my life. You know me just as well as you know yourself, and I understand you in the same way I understand my own thoughts and feelings.

You have never made me feel pressured, insecure, or unappreciated. The mutual respect we have for one another is unmatched. We can talk to each other about anything; from some of the most trivial topics to entire life philosophies. We have grown and matured together, and I couldn't be more proud of the person you are today.

We don't always agree on everything, and I always appreciate your fresh point of view, but I have never felt more in sync with another person than I do with you. We share the same birth month, the same age, the same home town, the same anxieties, and many of the same attitudes and values.

I feel as if you know exactly when I want to be alone and when I need company. Since we are both introverted, we understand that the other person needs time to recharge. And when I'm sitting alone with nothing to do, I always get a text from you asking to hang out.

In some of my loneliest, most vulnerable moments, you have been there. When I question how many true friends I really have, you are always sure to make your love for me known.

Through high school, and now college, we have experienced so many life-changing events together. Some that have taught us extremely valuable lessons, and others that have shown us incredible pain and how to grow from our lowest moments.

I want to thank you for showing me what life-long friendship looks like. Thank you for always understanding me and never putting too much pressure on me. I see an incredible future for both of us no matter where each of our lives takes us.

We will always share a unique connection that cannot be separated by any distance. But, for now, I'm glad you're only one text or phone call away.
