I’m one of those types of people that doesn’t have a whole lot of friends, I have a few really close ones and not many more. I don’t have a million people I can text or a large amount of people to always hang out with. In fact, now that I’m home for the summer I have around three go to people to hang out with. However, that doesn’t always work because they also have close to full time jobs or work even more than that. My one friend, Kaila, works two jobs around 50-60 hours a week. So it’s hard, I end spending
quite a bit of time on my own.
It’s interesting though because my personality would never let you think that I spend oodles of time alone. I’m really good at talking to just about anyone, I’m open, I’m
friendly, and I have a very genuine interest in what someone is talking about. You’d peg this on customer service skills but I’ve only been working a customer service job for around two years, this is just my natural personality. Which I love!
Today, I went to go to stair sprints at my former elementary school and I met a super nice janitor there and we talked for a solid half hour. We talked about his life, his weight loss goals and accomplishments, and what I was going to school for. It was really nice!
While I don’t have a whole bundle of friends that I can talk to every day or hang out with instantly, I have the skill to make friends anywhere I go. That to me is worth so much more than having a million friends.
To each there own though. I’m not saying having a million friends is bad, I’m just saying it’s not bad to keep your circle small ❤
