After more than thirty years of existence, life has taught me to keep my circle small and my wall high. To only keep close to the real ones who always stay by my side, despite everything. The ones whom I give my trust to. The ones whom I dare to be myself.
I believe when it comes to trust and friendship, being picky is a must.
Be with people whom you can stay genuine and comfortable with your own skin. People who support your life goals and believe in you. People who accept you as who you are, and they want you to stay there with them.
Without any mask, fakeness, lies, intrigue, conspiracy, pointless drama and unnecessary arguments.
It’s better to have few true friends than a lot of false and fake friends. True friends that you must keep, they will always stand by your side and never leave, no matter what.
“As we grow up, we realize it becomes less important to have a ton of friends, and more important to have real ones.” ~Unknown
Keep your circle small with positive minded individuals who only come to grow with you, and not to take advantage of you. Your circle should be good for your mental health and help you to become a better person.
Be careful who you open up to, not everyone is on the same level of thought as you are. Not everyone is kind, not everyone is sincere, and not everyone cares.
Remember, you don’t need a certain number of friends, just a number of friends you can be certain of. Surround yourself with people who will lift you higher, not the ones who love to bring you down.
Evaluate your circle so you can elevate your life. Sometimes your circle decreases in size, but increases in value. Quality over quantity.
