#739. Search for friends who bring you value. For quality always beats quantity.
Sorry for not uploading on Sunday! Here’s a brand new video. :-)
It’s all quite simple. Dress for the occasion. If you’re going to the gym then wear activewear. Likewise, if you’re going on a first date don’t wear what you would wear to a business meeting! I remember back in middle school when people would classify one another as “preppy” or “sporty”. The assumption meaning that no matter where that person would go — they would dress that part.
In actuality, it’s becomes more about what outfit can you wear (for that occasion) that makes you feel the most comfortable. By comfort, I’m referring to putting together an outfit based on your personality rather than sweatpants 24/7.
Don’t be predictable with your clothing choices. No one should be able to predict your outfit. Personally, some days I feel like wearing sweatpants and other days I rock a summer dress. It’s all based on my mood (and the weather).
Friends should not be *shocked* when you wear sweat pants because all they’ve ever seen you wear is a pencil skirt and a blazer. There’s a time and place for every piece of clothing. And, remember to dress your age. When else are you going to wear that crop top and high waisted shorts? If you don’t dress your age now — you’ll miss out on all of the amazing trends you could try!
Right now is when you must experiment with styles, patterns and prints. You won’t be able to do that in 10 years. Rock that high waisted skirt. Wear those wedges. You are beautiful, embrace that!
Take a step back and think about your life 3 months ago. Now think about it 2 years ago. Did you have different friends? Friends whom you believed to be your “bestest” friends? How is that as time goes by we find new friends to replace our old friends?
This turns out to be a constant cycle. We find ourselves bonding with people during school or at work because we need their friendship. We understand that if we have a friend in the class, then time will pass much faster. There’s more opportunity for us to be late or sick and obtain the notes we missed. Similarly, at work, we want to be comfortable and look forward to each day with someone to gossip with during lunch.
However, these relationships often fade because once you take out the key similarity of being in the same class or sharing the same office there isn’t much that the two of you have in common. It was simply convenient for you to be friends.
Not to worry, it’s not that you are a bad friend or that you don’t find the other person to be interesting. People just move on with their lives. And, if your paths do not intercept (and unless one of you insists on hanging out), it is unlikely that you will maintain the same bond.
I do believe there is a hierarchy to friendships which can be determined by how you act when you are around a person that you have not seen for two months, or even three years. I recently had the pleasure of seeing a good guy friend whom I see once or twice a year, where when we talk it is as if we are still in high school together. I consider him to be one of my best friends because I can be myself without thinking that there is something I need to prove to him.
I find that the people whom you meet that are your “temporary best friends” end up hurting you the most because either you believe that there is more to the friendship or they do. But don’t worry, there’s a lot you can learn from these broken friendships.
It is oftentimes during the hardest points in your life when your true friends will be there for you. It’s common sense that people will be around you when things are going well in your life, but not everyone can handle a crisis. And, it’s not about how long you’ve known someone either. You can feel when someone is true to you or when a friend cares for you.
Understandably, It’s tough to let friendships go, but sometimes certain friendships do more harm than good. There should be no reason why a friend tries to pick a fight, or why they never plan something with you. Friends should go out of their way to motivate you, and to tell you to never give up.
I’ve only ever had a handful of friends who have truly pushed me to my limit and believed in me when I was at my weakest point. A friend doesn’t need to be someone who wears the same handbag as you or loves to get drunk. It’s someone that would give you 110% of their attention and find a way to cheer you up.
If your current friends can’t handle a twentysomething year old problem that you have — how will they be able to help you through a financial crisis, a marriage, a child, a divorce or even a death?
“You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with.”
So just as you wouldn’t spend your time on an awful relationship… don’t spend it on an even worse friendship.

"Ralph Waldo Emerson once asked what we would do if the stars only came out once every thousand years. No one would sleep that night, of course… We would be ecstatic, delirious, made rapturous by the glory of God. Instead, the stars come out every night, and we watch television."
— Paul Hawken
