NO ROAD IS LONG
Most of us have been there… Found ourselves in a new environment and been introduced to new people. Some of them we clicked with instantly, and some we didn’t utter 1 word to. At the end of the day, everyone we know used to be someone we just met. Our life long partners, best friends, colleagues…
So what makes some people different than others? I don’t have a sure answer to that in which we can all agree on. All I can offer is one girls opinion. So here it goes.
I believe that we resonate with some people more than we do with others. Wow, I know, I’m such a genius, right?… Some people we resonate with, and feel instantly connected to, with others it takes some more time… Whereas some we don’t ever get to a point where we feel relaxed no matter how much we try.
What do I mean by resonate? I mean having the ability to be ourselves around people. Being able to relax and letting our thoughts flow free. With good company, we don’t feel tense and calculated. And believe me, as an awkward person who grew up standing out from the crowd for all the wrong reasons – but right as I learnt a lot from them – I know what its like to feel socially awkward. Majority of us go through that time where we are trying to find our own place in society. Friends are a big BIG part of that. And being in good company effects you more than you think.
The kind of friendships, and the kind of people we are around effect the kind of person we turn out to be. And in return, the kind of person we turn out to be, effects the kind of people we resonate with and choose to be around. All of it is interlinked threads in a pretty loop.
Being with good people – which is relative to everyone – will change you. Being yourself around people is a gift that no-one else can give to you. I know how hard it can be to come across people who resonate with and who understands you. But I also know how they can change your life when they are finally in it.
It is exhausting trying to be something you are not just because you are trying to fit in with a crowd. But we all have to be brave from time to time. Believe me, it is all worth it when you find those who will become a part of your heart, and being with their existence.
Try to be careful letting people in your life. I’m not saying that you should not trust anyone. But trust with caution. Trust with care. And when you trust, trust for sure. Trust with love and with all of you. Sometimes even getting hurt teaches you things that you might not have learnt until it was too late.
Being wise whilst choosing your friendships will make your life that much more enjoyable. As they say "No road is long with good company"!
Hope this resonates with most of you, and makes you appreciate your friends who offer you the best!
See you next week!
