"Friendship is a beautiful thing"

First and foremost:

BE YOURSELF

I know you've heard it a million times already but don't ever feel inclined to compromise your interests, beliefs, style, appearance, culture, passions or anything, in order to impress someone. Your true and lifelong friends will love you for your unfiltered, raw self.

Do Things You Love

The odds are you probably enjoy something in which you can meet new people through. If you play sports, look into joining a team. If you like art, take art classes at school. If you're in a fandom, go to a convention or meet up (stay safe). I can go into more detail about finding friends within your comfort zone in a separate article if you'd like :)

Make Friends With People You See Most Often

If you are still in school like me, this won't be so hard. School can be one of the easiest and most difficult places to make friends. But think about it, you don't have to go out of your way to interact with people that are your age, and if you go to a big school, there is definitely someone for you. don't be scared to go outside of your grade group to find them.

Reach Out

This can be extremely difficult, especially for all the introverts out there. But a lot of the time, you have to be the one to initiate a conversation. It can be awkward and scary but take baby steps: be nice, ask them questions, find some common ground etc. I'll definitely be making an article about conversation skills (mostly for myself lol)

Get a Job

if you're old enough to work (even if you're a teenager) I encourage you to. Not only can you make money and build a CV (resume), but it gives you an opportunity to become friends with your colleagues. there are probably lots of people around your age working in clothes shops, fast food places or with kids.

Volunteer

You can volunteer in your community, with kids, with the less fortunate, for a hospital, for a charity, and orphanage, your school, your church (or place of worship), any organisation you feel passionate towards. This is a positive space to meet like minded people and it's a good cause.

I really hope something in here helped one of you. Making friends can be tough, but you are all beautiful people who deserve the best. Don't settle for people who don't support or encourage you <3

Thank you all so much for reading, I really appreciate it. Please leave me feedback and feel free to request what you want to see next. I love you all. I'll be back with another one of these very soon
