    Awesome topic! I can see this going on in this generation especially. Me personally, I really never liked having negative people or friends around me because it was just so draining – so much drama, judgments, wasting time, etc. I don’t like being around things or people that I feel are going to lower my self-esteem instead of uplifiting it. I guess that’s why I kind of isolate myself and not socialize as much as others because of that reason. Some people might think I don’t have good social skills but the real reason is that I have good social skills but hate drama and negativity that I would rather not socialize with negative friends.
    A lot of people nowadays are being so fake and not genuine and always just judging people instead of taking the time to understand what that person is going through.

    I’ve been through a lot in my life and my struggles made me more stronger, mature and authentic as I got older. Some people just have to follow the crowd and are worrying about fitting in that they start to be around negative friends all the time. I don’t give a damn about what other people think and I just do what’s best for me despite some people judging me. I’m free of drama and negativity and I try to always spread positivity as much as possible. I’m always myself and I’ve been noticing that I’m starting to attract more genuine, positive friends now (quality is better than quantity) and people should start doing that as well. You know what they say, you attract what you are 🙂 Great post love ❤️

      Thank you! I feel there’s a lot of judgement nowadays, though it’s hard to say whether that’s down to age and being in our mid to late twenties. Most people are on different life paths now and it’s easy to look at each other and make comparisons.

      I always think it’s funny that everyone likes following crowds when it’s the people who stand out that make a difference and get noticed. Not worrying about drama just feels so much more freeing. I hate getting caught up in petty stuff and unimportant things.

      Thanks for reading girl x

    When I was in high school, I struggled to figure out who was negative, and who exactly wasn’t really doing me any good. It wasn’t until i was a bit older that i realized what negative friends were. Friends that made me feel terrible in some way or another. Like you said, there are different types of negative friends. I’ve definitely had my fair share with all types of negative friends, which have resulted in lots of friend breakups. Some of them just slowly drifting out of my life, while others exit my life much more dramatically. Great post Laura xx

      That happened to me as well. Some friends have exited dramatically while others have slowly drifted. In high school it’s more about ‘popularity’ and having a big group of friends around you.

      But then as you get older, you realise you prefer quality and people you can rely on. xxx
