Our busy lifestyles can leave little time in our schedules to maintain these important friendships, but it is essential we invest our time wisely.
Last Saturday, I was invited to go out to celebrate a friend getting her dream job. At first I was unsure whether to go as I was working during the day, had nothing to wear and to be honest I also felt a little anxious as I had not been out in a large group since pre-covid times. My partner encouraged me to go and I’m so glad he did. Yes, it was an effort to get ready after a long day at work, but once I met up with my friends, I realised what I had been missing!
So I will make more of an effort to see my friends and work on maintaining our close friendships. Friends are a great source of support, they accept who you are and help you become who you want to be. They listen, laugh and cry with you, they are hugely important.
~Increase sense of belonging
~Improve self confidence and self worth
~Help you cope through the bad times
~Encourage you to be your best self
Friends are like stars.
You don’t always see them, but you know they are there!
Love, Georgia x
