5 Friends Everyone Should Have

Hey Guys,

Yesterday I did a post on toxic friendships (if you haven’t seen it click here) but today I thought that I would lighten things up a bit, by saying five friendships that we have all had or currently have.

The One Call Away:

The one call away is a friend you need to keep. They are the friend who will always be there for you, and will pick up the phone whenever you need them. If they are busy, that will not matter. If you need them, they are there!

The Photographic Memory:

This friend will literally remember everything you ever said to them or did for them, because they are extremely sentimental and love to have these memories with them at all times. This is literally me. If someone writes me something, or does something nice for me, I keep the evidence of it, to reminisce in the future. I also like to tell them how much I care because I am that sentimental. It’s probably sad, but I don’t care.

The I Will Make You Laugh:

I love a good laugh. Who doesn’t? When I say laugh though, I mean seriously laugh, because when I start, I can’t stop, and my friends know that. A friend of mine always has to have a sense of humor, or be able to pick me back up again when I am down, with a joke.

The Personal Trainer:

This person will mentor you through anything and will help to push you past your comfort zone. They are great to have around, as they know what is best for you, and try to help you, but only if you are willing to help yourself. They come with a lot of positivity and many pep talks, some of which may result in a bit of tough love, but they mean well.

The Protector:

We don’t always need protecting, but there is always that one friend that makes it part of their responsibility to make sure you are always ok, and will stop anyone who tried to hurt you. All you can do, is trust them!

5 Signs You’re In A Toxic Friendship

Hey Guys,

As you might be aware, I have had my fair share of toxic friendships, even up to quite recently, so I thought I would give you signs to look out for, which will show you if you are in the wrong friendship. I just don’t want you to be in the same position I have been in for a few years. I hope this helps!

Betrayal Of Trust:

You can put as much effort and trust as possible into a friendship, and then within a few seconds have it all ruined because the other person lets you down and betrays you in some way or another. It hurts! I know!

You Begin To Fear Or Become Anxious Whenever They Are Around:

I never used to have anxiety until I became friends with someone who ruined me. Anytime I saw them, or felt like they were going to get angry with me, I would become frightened. Some people thought it was weird that I could be afraid of someone, but they clearly have no idea what it’s like to be in that position.

Manipulate Your Feelings:

There was one person in my life who always knew the right things to say to make me feel like something she did, was completely my fault and I made her do it. I was being conditioned to apologise for things I hadn’t done, to the point that I just say sorry now just in case.

Picking Out Every Little Flaw You Have:

I think I mentioned this last week, but I had someone who would always pick out whatever problems I had, and make me feel as though what I was, was wrong. It made me go from super confident, to what I am now, afraid of what people will think. No one should ever have the power to control how you see yourself.

They Make Your Achievements Seem Small:

Any achievement, even those that seem small, are actually not. If you have done something which deserves mentioning, then a true friend will tell you how brilliant it is, but someone who is a toxic friend, will not because it’s not about them. If you have an achievement, you should be able to feel great about it, and not worried about how they react to it.

These are not all of the signs, but if you can relate to any of these, I would begin to re evaluate the friendships you currently hold. I stayed with mine for 4 years, because I was too afraid. Leaving was the best thing I ever did! Sure, there is pain afterwards, but that can be fixed, staying would make it worse.

Things will get better!

Fun Interview With Anna Regina from Diversion3000

DON'T SUFFER IN SILENCE(2)

Hey Guys,

Remember that time when I told you about this cool idea about blogger interviews? Yeah me neither! It was really that long ago.I have finally figured everything out, and got past some barriers which were in my way, and now I am here, and completely ready to give you the first of hopefully many interviews. Are you ready? Good!

The first interviewee is a friend of mine, and the co creator of a little group we like to call Team Awesome, it’s Anna Regina from Diversion 3000 (I sound like I am an announcer in a Boxing match. ‘And in the blue corner..’).

The Interview:

I feel like this will be a good place to start, in the form of a tweet, explain to everyone here what your blog is actually about.

My blog’s about my opinion ’bout stuff, reasons why I like stuff, experiences, photography, funny things, interviews…Was it too long? Did I explain it well? I f you want me to put another answer, you can just ask me!!!

No it was fine! In fact great! How did you come up with your blog name, because it is quite weird and unique, but in a good way.

The blog’s name is actually in Spanish. My blog was entirely in spanish at first, I changed it cause blogs get more views if they’re in English. The word “diversiΓ³n” is a spanish word that (if you study spanish may know) means “fun”, and the “3000” was simply because I thought it sounded better with a number.

Now that was long, HAHA!!

Well I guess that makes sense.Β 

Once you had come up with this name, did you have a clear indication of where you wanted this blog to take you, or what you wanted to do with it?

That’s a good question, I think I just wanted to amuse other people for at least 5 minutes. But I just didn’t think I would get more than 20 followers!!

Obviously you were going to get more than 20 followers! Come on!

Yeah but I didn’t know that. Haha!!

Now I come to think of it, I thought the same. When it comes to actually writing your posts, what would be your usual process to coming up with the awesome ideas that you do?

I just sit at my desk, make a list of ideas (something like a brainstorming) for posts and just choose the ones I like. And when I don’t have inspiration, I just listen to music, it really works!!!

Ok! That’s actually really awesome! If you had to choose one blogger who is clearly your spirit animal, and you are mostly inspired by, who would that be, and why?

Does it count if I say it’s you??

What genuinely? Me?

Of course, you doubt it??

I just can’t believe you would pick me! πŸ™‚ Ok but why would you say me?

Because you’re very nice, I love your blog and I have fun with you!!! You even recommended me Goodreads (something which is so hard for me to understand) and that’s why!!!

Aww Clearly a girl of good blogging taste haha! πŸ˜‰ Just kidding πŸ™‚ Oh this question is quite a good one, how do you manage to juggle blogging with your school work? Any tips for that?

I avoid dealing with that, that’s why I only post on weekends. But if you ever post in the middle of the week, just remember school ALWAYS goes first: just do your homework, study and then you can blog as much time as you want!!!

Oh right! I always found it difficult to juggle the two, so I always felt pressure! Anyway, as the creators of Team Awesome, we will need to recruit others to join us. Who do you suppose we should invite to join this great team?

Sure!!! EVERYONE is welcome!!!! πŸ˜€

You hear that, you all can join our team!

Finally, I would like to ask you to describe your followers in just 3 words. It’s a difficult one!

Totally!! I would say: cheerful, funny and amazing!!!

YES! Woo! Thank you for joining me, and letting me interview you! I will leave your social links below so people can find you πŸ™‚

You should definitely check her out, because quite soon we are set to do a collaboration on her blog as well, so look out for that!

Saying Sorry For No Reason

Friend Or Foe_(1)

Hey Guys,

We have all said sorry at some point, that is a given, but what if you said sorry all of the time? Now that would be a problem. Right?

Perhaps in the past you hurt someone, not intentionally, but you did, and you knew an apology was in order, so you go up to that person and you tell them that you were sorry for what you did. Most times they will accept that apology, because they can tell you meant it and know you enough to know you wouldn’t do it again.

I will apologise when I have done something to somebody. I will admit, I can sometimes say the wrong thing, at the wrong time, not meaning to hurt anyone. I am only human after all.

I also feel the need to apologise when I didn’t do a single thing wrong. It has become an instant reaction for me now. I could be the victim in a situation, and I will still be the one to say sorry. That is one thing I really hate about myself.

I bet you are wondering where this all came from, well a few years ago, I was stuck in a very unhealthy friendship, where I was constantly being tormented and hurt by the same person, my so called ‘friend’.

The person doing this was so clever with how they spoke, so much so that they could get out of anything, and even make me say sorry to them for hurting me. I was being manipulated to the point that now I am too scared not to say sorry to people, even for the smallest of things. I get worried that my actions are going to cause people to leave me, and just walk out of my life

Saying sorry has become my security, and also an insecurity, as I am now an easier target. People can hurt me and it wont make a difference, because they know I will say sorry to them! Oh well!
