Why I Don't Need A Big Group of Friends

I’m satisfied with my small group of friends and I like to keep them close. Realistically, you can only have a few that you trust and can tell anything to, and I choose quality over quantity anytime. In my experience, having big friend groups are nice to have great connections, but it can also be frustrating in the long run because you don’t know who you can rely on—in other words, to call them a “real” friend. To be honest, I don’t want to befriend so many people because it’s time consuming and it can lead to unnecessary drama; I like to choose the people that will be there for me when I need them most. Here are some reasons why having smaller friend groups are beneficial to your lifestyle.



1. Quality over quantity.

Why not invest in quality time with the few people that you trust and who bring a great influence to your life rather than using that time getting to personally know a lot of people. In my view, having a close and tight friend group who support each other is way more meaningful than trying to get to know so many people because at the end of the day, you don’t know who you can trust.


2. Reduced drama.

The more people you know in your life, the more drama it will lead to. You’ve only got so much time to deal with your personal issues and you don’t want to be focused on unnecessary drama in your life that could drain your energy.


3. They get to be your long-term friend.

Investing quality time for the people who are worth having in your life will never be a mistake. Although you can have your ups and downs with these people, but having real friendships are worth fighting for and it will make your relationships stronger than ever.


4. They will love you for who you truly are.

Again, the more time and effort you put into your close friend group, the more you reveal yourself—that means they get to see your vulnerable side, your weaknesses and your strengths. All these possible characteristics make up your real personality. In addition, you will get to learn who they are as well.


5. Even when you are alone, you will never feel lonely.

This is the most satisfying and comforting thought for anyone. When you have established who your real friends are, you begin to formulate the idea of always having someone there for you, and that eliminates loneliness. This powerful thought will give you confidence, love and the motivation for you to get through any day!
