[Blogger Claire] Hanging out with the Right People Make You Genuinely Happy


Sometimes I feel that it’s not easy to be close with someone, the closer you are, the more secrets and thoughts you share and reveal and next, conflicts happened. Most of the times it’s not even direct conflict, it’s just misunderstanding on the other end and somehow it suddenly becomes your fault.

I find that it is starting to get difficult to share my problems or happiness with people. You don’t know if they genuinely want to know what is going on with your life or they just, you know, ‘want to know’.

It is so hard to find people that are true, genuine and down to earth. But I am glad that I still have friends that really care and really love spending time with me.

Recently we have been spending every Saturday with our friends. Even though we only knew them for a few years, we get along really well. I can be myself when I’m with them, I don’t need to try too hard, I don’t need to put on a fake front. I felt really comfortable and relaxed.

This feeling is really different compared to if you are being forced to go out.

For example, there are times when I go out because I have to and not because I want to. I felt bad to reject and so I went ahead and sulk afterwards. I think you can understand. A lot of people don’t know how to say no. A lot of you, like me, felt bad to reject too.

I think what we need to do is to learn how to say no. Saying no can be very difficult but I feel that it is very important to us. Surrounding yourself with the right people will channel positive energy and this, in turn, will make you a happier person.

So yes, hanging out with the right people is really important. True friends make you a better version of yourself. 

Till the next.
