Being a well-adjusted adult can be super challenging for some people. I’ve heard so many people talk about how hard it is to make friends and connections after college. I’ve never personally had that problem but I think it’s interesting to think about. What makes it so hard for people to connect with others after college is over? I think being an open, honest and positive person can take you pretty damn far. Being social is key to doing that. And taking risks of course.
But you have to think about how you treat people because real life isn’t like college when a drunken comment can be laughed off the next day. In college we make networks and tight-knit groups and maintaining that closeness and status quo is more important than calling someone out on their bullshit.
Life after college ain’t like that. If you’re really good friends with someone, always try to work it out. But if you can’t, let it go. Friendships truly come and go. College friendships don’t always last into adulthood. I learned that the hard way. You just have to be open to that possibility and the idea that you can make new friends and relationships.
Positivity is the KEY.
