Everything seems to be moving so fast, friends getting married, moving away, just people around me getting on with life and I feel as if I'm just standing still, or worse slowing down. I want to keep up, I want to improve and achieve, just don't know where to start.
How can I have a good relationship?
I went for dinner last night. I like dinner. I like food and eating. Although I realise that as I type this that food and eating has always had it’s challenges for me. But that’s not the point of this thought. I don’t think. You can see I haven’t planned this or got some sort of pre planned script.
I walked up the stairs to the stage. I grabbed the microphone under the bright stage lights. I could feel the warmth of the lights on my skin. I could feel the attention in the room as the crowd cheered.
Having a good friend can help reduce depression, stress, anger, and bring so much joy into one’s life. Think about your best friend and all the amazing times you’ve shared. Friends become like family.
Hey there, new best friend!
Hello! Surprised this is happening again to be honest but here I am, pondering a train station, thinking what has happened. I have been spending so much energy on someone I input so much of my time to & for what? To feel constant hits of positive stride? To feel a sense of wanting. To have someone to talk to every day that you want to talk to? Making decisions with the idea of getting a yes. Maybe I’m looking too into it. Isn’t this what friendship is though, inviting your “friends” to things in hopes that they return the friendship. It must feel nice to present your friends with an opportunity and they agree and equally pay their fair to have a good time around you and those in good company.
When you hear the word “real,” what pops up into your head? A thing, a rumour, an event, a moment in your life that you wanna relive…or simply just a person, your relationship with them?
Now, if this is your first read from me, here's a little recap. I'm alone in college, I have no friends, and when I try to make friends, it normally goes south pretty fast. My closest family and my girlfriend are at least three states away.
To start, I am alone. I am in college—freshman year. And just because I'm a freshman, don't you dare write me off as another homesick, bummer boy who's just crying about how he can't go home to mommy. It doesn't always work like that. This is my first piece of writing work on Vocal, so don't judge too hard.
Throughout school I always felt like there was pressure that you needed an army of friends. Friends that would back you in any situation, maybe even help avoid any bullying if that was to occur—the more friends, the cooler you were, right? You couldn't be more wrong.
