Life Lessons From My Friends



 I may no longer live with or near some of my best friends, but I like to think that we are still as close as ever. If anything, it makes me love them even more.

Most of my closest friends I met at University, all from different circles, but each have taught me and encouraged me to do things differently and become a better person. I am so grateful to have met each and every one of the them and so glad I have a solid support group, even though we still don't see each other every day.

1. A Problem Shared Is A Problem Halved
Never underestimate the power of sharing your problems. A true friend will listen, and make sure they help. I can't tell the amount of times that we would often have a little cry about life, and know that it is totally okay. They have made me a more caring person with dealing with other people's problems too. Friendship is a two way street.

2. Build Each other Up, Not Down
There is nothing more uplifting than a simple compliment from one of your pals. From 'your skin looks great', to a group chat dedicated to someone's night out outfit. Even though we are in different parts of the country, we still give each other so much encouragement and I know that if I'm feeling low, they will always pick me up.

3. Be Creative
My friends are amazingly creative. Two of my friends are amazing at photography, another is a great cook and is always making something out of the box. Another is an amazing singer songwriter and draws brilliantly. They inspire me to do something different and creative. 

4. A Small Token Goes A  Long Way
From making someone a cup of tea, sharing a portion of your dinner, or receiving a letter out of the blue, you realise it's the little things that really put a smile on your face. 


5. There Really Is Nothing Better Than Sticking On Relaxing Music And Drinking Tea
My friends made me realise something can be so simple as to putting on relaxing music can make you feel relaxed. My favourite evenings used to be us sitting in a room with some candles, doing each others nails or studying. Even doing the same activities by myself make me think of those times and I feel instantly relaxed.
