The most important decision you make in your life is who you choose as your partner.
100 percent absofreakinlutely accurate!
I’ll definately elaborate this through personal experiences and pictures in my next post but right now, I’d like to make an addition to this quote-
Not only your partner. But your friends.
Choosing your friends is the most important task and has an immediate effect in all the smaller and greater parts of your life.
We often get so involved in the idea of love. And how our perfect partner should be like. That we tend to really raise our standards and expectations in that area while comparatively ignoring those standards for our friends.
College is the time where you suddenly meet a ton of people. To the point where it consumes you. Peer politics is not new in any field. Whether you are an ISRO scientist or a sorority sister or a salesperson at big bazaar/ walmart.
It’s easy to substandardise your expectations for your friends in this kind of atmosphere. Happened to me. More than once actually.
It is so important to choose your friends wisely.
Make sure they care what you did all day, what is new with you, how are you feeling, what do you want to eat.
Like I always say, it’s the small things that matter.
Keep the standard high for all relationships in your life and you will create a horde of people who really really love you, for you.
And oh my god isn’t that the most heartwarming and amazing feeling ever! You can never look back from there.
You deserve every bit of love and respect and happiness in the world.
Lots of love,
Brown girl on a budget 🙂
