Not a Popularity Contest

( moments like these reminds me of how lucky I am to have these people in my life )

“As we become older our group of friends become smaller …”

I am only 23 but I already can see this happening to me. On social media, a lot of people are always flaunting how much fun they are having with their “squad” and all the things they do as a group. I am not going to lie but sometimes I would wish that I had a big group of people to hang out with all the time. I want to always have weekend plans and just people to do crazy things with.

These thoughts would eat me up sometimes because I would realize how stupid I am being. I have a great boyfriend and close girlfriends that I can tell anything to. It sucks that we are always busy with life and aren’t able to get together often but when we do it’s always an awesome time. My circle of friends has definitely shrunk but the people that are still here are the ones that I can actually trust and be myself with. I need to be more appreciative of what I have instead of always comparing myself to others.

Someone is always going to look like they are having more fun than you but you will never know if that’s really the case. I’ve hung out with a big group of “friends” all the time back then but I never felt like myself around them. It’s hard to remind myself to focus on what I already have but it’s something that I am working on every day. I am all for meeting new people but I am going to stop forcing a relationship with people that I do not feel a connection with.
