Having friends at my side shouldn’t be the most important thing in my life. However, it is very important to me. I know that sometimes in this world, it can get a little lonely and you should have friends to keep you company. Having the right friends encouraging me to do the right things and chase after the things that will build me up is just as essential as going to a doctor’s appointment. Anyways, let’s talk about friends and mental health.
The right friends
What is a friend? I guess you could call a friend a person that you associate with and that you hang out with and find things in common. Right? A friend. But what are some things that I need to look for in a friend? I need to look for a lot of things that I need and want.
In my instance, I look for friends that are Christian. Christian because I do not want to argue over moral or sensitive topics. I want a friend who will agree with what I think.
I also look for music friends. I want a friend who will teach me what they know because I wish to learn different music techniques.
The last thing that I look for in a friend is someone who I can relate to. I don’t wish to be around someone who is boring. I want someone exciting and does cool things.
I am not saying that these are the correct things that you should look for. I am just showing you some of the things that I look for in a friend.
The mental health side
There are some people who we call friends, however, maybe we should be a little more careful as to what we call them because they could in fact be hurting us and that is something that we do not want.
I’ll give you an example, when I was in high school and middle school, I had friends who were doing some bad things. They were skipping class, doing drugs, not doing their homework, and various other things. I decided there that I would not associate myself with them because of the things that they were doing. Even though I did call them my friends, I still didn’t get close to them because I didn’t want to be a part of it.
So, I choose to separate myself from those people because it would be bad for my mental health. I know that if I kept hanging out with those friends, then it would have been only a matter of time before I would’ve been doing the same things that they were doing.
