Why Losing Friends is Normal and Beneficial to Personal Growth

Losing friends is a part of life. Never think of it as a loss if you haven’t seen the big picture. It may not seem good to see a friend slowly drifting away from your life at the moment but it will work out in the end. When you get older, you will find yourself constantly assessing your relationships with other people, may it be with your friends, family, co-workers, and other people you associate with. Evaluating your relationships is a sign that you’re maturing and you’re walking on the road to mastering self-awareness.

The Truth about Friendships in Your Twenties

Friendships are one of the most magical beginnings in the world, but not everyone has the luxury of experiencing such. They can happen when one of your mutual friends introduces you or when you’re standing in line and she offered you a tissue after somebody spilled hot tea on your shirt. There are even times when you first look at a person and think you’re never going to be friends with him/her because you two are so different on the surface, but with hindsight, you would’ve had the best time of your life.

Some friendships are also born when your long-time enemy turns out to be your ride-or-die bitch. There are also instances when you know somebody for so long and wonder why the two of you were never friends, but maybe it’s because nobody ever made the first move. If you’re someone who has a knack for making friends, then it probably means you’re a good conversationalist too because it mostly starts with a simple conversation. But regardless of how these friendships start, you rarely see them peak when you reach your twenties (especially when you didn’t have that strong of a bond when you were young). 

Why Do You Feel Stuck in Your Twenties? 4 Secrets to Overcome It

When you’re stuck, you have to move to get out of it. It’s that simple. Everyone is dealing with his unparalleled battles, and most are doing it very poorly. Aside from the obvious obstacle of not knowing what to do in their life, it’s a high possibility that they’re not doing anything about it. They spend their days feeding their ego in their imaginations but they never muster the bravery to execute their plans.

They never find the urgent need to start. Remember that whenever you feel stuck in life, there can only be three logical explanations for it: (1) you’re too lazy to work on what you want. You’re waiting for someone to pull you from the ground, (2) you’re beating yourself way too hard with no sleep and no proper nutrition that’s affecting both your physical and mental state, or (3) you’re living a life that you can’t call your own.

15 Worst Mistakes You (Inevitably) Make in Your Twenties

We try to view life like it’s one huge to-do list. Our desperate need to control everything goes overboard, and that’s why we tumble on situations that we aren’t supposed to be dealing with in the first place. But don’t worry, we all go through that, even ridiculously  successful people in the industry right now. We don’t always know what to do, but that doesn’t make us any less capable of what we’re destined to have. However, it’s still much better to be aware of what’s to come than having not to.

How to Cope with F.O.M.O in a Pandemic

F.O.M.O stands for “fear of missing out.” It’s a trendy slang referring to the anxious feeling of a person who believes his friends or peers are currently enjoying each other’s company in his absence. A person who’s experiencing this social anxiety yearns to always be connected or updated by what others are doing. He doesn’t want to “miss out” on the fun and fulfilling moments of other people, and usually insists he’s being hated and isolated by them. A common factor that triggers this feeling is the spontaneity and fabrication of the definition of “fun” in social media which impacts the behavior and mental health of the users who witness it.
