LIFE: Making friends in your twenties...

Gone are the days when you'd make new friends by playing tag in the playground. As you grow up it's much harder to open up, being wary of people's intentions whilst having flashbacks to your younger, naive self. I've grown up and realised sometimes, friendships aren't supposed to be forever. It could be nothing to do with you, but friendships drift for all kinds of reasons. I'm sure we all have our fair share of 'ex-bestfriends'. The important thing is, try not to let this get you down. And here I need to take my own advice, because if I'm honest, I've lost two of my closest friends which still make me feel weird. People change and with that, so do their intentions and priorities. If someone is no longer making you one of their priorities (and no I'm not saying your friends need to treat you like BeyoncΓ©) then it is well and truly OK to say goodbye.


Since moving down to London, and away from my closest friends, I've kind of had to learn to enjoy more time on my own. But I am the kind of person who loves to be surrounded by people. I feel much happier after a day of spending time with friends, than a day where I've been alone. As much as I love a good day to myself, face mask on and cuppa tea in hand, nothing quite beats a good old laugh with friends! Makes me so grateful for technology, not sure where I'd be without my girl group chats!



Over the past few months I've began to understand, once you get older, it isn't about quantity, friendship is all about quality. I'm a firm believer of how important it is to really hold onto those friendships with those who are likeminded & I'm so happy to have come across some beautiful girls since I started this whole blogging journey. Chatting everyday and meeting up regularly has made me so inspired! We all have such similar interests, all from different backgrounds and places and we've become such close friends.

So glad to have met Katy from lexilife.co.uk X

So ~ all I want to say is, trust your gut, if you feel like your friendships aren't of 'quality' then you're probably right.. Keep those friends close who value and appreciate you, they are the best kind of people! And with that, remember to show how much you appreciate your friends, even if you haven't seen them for ages, or haven't caught up in a while, I'm sure they'd love a text or call from you today.


Love
Kirby

  4. I'm in the exact same position at the moment, I've just drifted away from my friendship group and I'm having to learn how to make new friends all over again, it's really scary but quite exciting at the same time!

    1. Once you find the ones though you'll know! Very exciting, it's nice to have a choice as well, if that makes sense. Like you aren't forced into a friendship from school/uni/work! Xx

  5. Being older and finding friends can be difficult but that can be a good thing. You learn who actually is your friend and who is there just for interest. Love this post!

  9. Babe this post speaks to me on so many levels. It's so true that in your 20's you really do find your true friends, and I think the smaller the circle the better xxx

  10. I relate to this so much. It's SO much harder to make friends when you get older and you don't realise people feel the same as you, either xx
