Old Friends... - Magical Mondays!

Hey Beauts,

I don't know about you, but I am most definatly one of those people that lives for friends. I love making friends, I love spending time with friends, I love conversations with friends and I love seeing how people repay you for your friendships and react to friendships. It is just really interesting to watch. Saying that, It is common to fall out with friends and slowly lose touch with people that you absolutely love and lately I have just been getting fed up of losing friends over petty arguments or just being busy in general and not having enough time to talk to one another. Because of this, I have set myself a goal to have a conversation with at least 4 people a day (new or old) in an attempt to remind my friends that I do love them, but people just get busy.

One of my favourite sayings is 'The best type of friends are the ones where when you don't talk for ages and then when you talk again, it is like nothing has ever changed'.  Whilst I do agree with this to a certain point, I feel as though friends still need to feel appreciated in that time in between. By little conversations and wanting to spend time with each other. Being busy sometimes doesn't cut it. What I have learnt lately is by not communicating with friends, it leaves room for falseness to form. That is why it is good to talk to people.

Another thing I have been noticing a lot is the fact that technology is over taking the world. Do you remember going out and spending time with your friends? Going round a knocking on their door to see if they are free? Where technology makes it a lot easier to talk to one another, it takes away the idea of spending time together, and seeing each others smiles and happy faces while they are spending time in your company. That to me, is one of the best parts of friendship! So go and organise a meal out or a trip to the park.

I don't know, this is just what I have been thinking a lot about lately and I'm sorry if this kind of post doesn't appeal to you all that much, but friends are what makes the world go round! Do you have any tips in making friends? And are you one of those people that follows the same motto I do or do you try and talk to people as much as you can? Quite simply, what are your thoughts on this post? If you enjoyed this post and aren't already, you can follow on BlogLovin' and GFC so you don't miss out on any future posts. I hope you have a magical Monday.

    1. I know what you mean! I've moved away from my childhood friends and technology is great for a day to day basis, but we still meet up from time to time. :)
      Do you ever wonder how much more you would meet up if you didn't have technology to rely on? :)
