You are Wanted
Hey loves! I’m so happy you’re here. You’re so awesome. Your space that you take up in this world is necessary! See what I just did there? I embraced you. That’s what I want to address. I want you to start going where you’re truly embraced, flaws and all. Your bumps in the road shouldn’t get a stank face from who you mingle with.
I’m sure we all have our stories with “mean girls.” And in those stories, we can say we’ve been on both ends. At least I can! However, as we grow I think it’s appropriate to really evaluate who embraces us, every now and then. Who are you calling a friend too loosely? Who are you not reaching out to enough out of fear?
I speak from experience on this topic, because I’ve spent a lot of time being afraid of rejection and assuming how people feel. One thing I want to make clear is, we all need friends. No one should be all alone. Even those of us that are the toughest cookies of the bunch. Making friends can be a challenge, especially as an adult. Everyone’s busy or seems to already have a solid friend base that’s nearly impossible to get “into.” But, I believe we all have a couple people in our lives already that are “our” people.
Those people that embrace you. Whether it be at work, school, church, etc. The people you see who’s face lights up when they see you. You can tell them just about anything. You can go time apart, without it being awkward when linking back up. There’re just for you! Those are the folks we need around. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t have a giant friend group, chances are it’s more intimate that way.
So, here’s a few tips for the road!
Don’t compare your friend group to others.
Don’t assume how people feel about you.
Don’t be afraid to get out there and meet new people!
As always, thank you for stopping by! Keep that beautiful head up, and keep doing your best! Have a great week!
