Why it’s OK to lose friends in your twenties

Being twenty-something myself, I never actually thought this would happen to me. I always had one really close friend who I thought the world of. Turns out I was wrong to do so. It came to light last year just how toxic this friendship was, I’m very thankful to this day that I ended up letting it go.

Usually, people feel sad and lonely when they notice their pool of friends is getting smaller and smaller as they grow older. But, it’s completely normal to lose friends as you grow older.

When you’re in your twenties, you can no longer just “hang out” with friends carefree, every day like you used to. I mean, you’ve got responsibilities now; you may have a car, a house, a job and have a clearer picture of what you want out of life.

Speaking from experience, as much as it hurts, it’s totally normal for friends to come and go. Here’s why you shouldn’t be too downhearted about it!

The importance of work friends

FACT: Most of us will spend a large proportion of our adult lives at work, especially now that many of us are retiring at a much later age (retirement seems so far away *sobs*).

Since work takes up such a large part of our time during our lives, it makes sense that we should work hard to build friendships with our work colleagues. One key contributor to being happy at work is having friends there, but that doesn’t just make it more fun – studies suggest it actually helps productivity and creativity! View Post

18 things I wish I knew at 18

After learning a few life lessons in the past few months that I wish someone had taught me years ago, these are 18 things I desperately wish I knew at 18!

18. If you’re meant to stay friends with your high school friends you will. So many times I was told by people older than me that you may or may not stay close with your high school friends once you leave, and it actually stressed me out. Friends come and go and I’ve met so many good friends outside of school, through work, through other people etc. so don’t panic! View Post
