While becoming an adult entails paying your own monthly bill and doing (responsible-ish) food shopping, it also entails having the freedom to pick your mates. You're no longer in school; not only can you sit with whoever you choose, but you also have many more friends to select from than your university or home friends. A whole universe filled, in fact.
So make friends with people you enjoy, people who are easy to be around, people who make you feel good about yourself, people who are kind, and people who challenge you to be the greatest version of yourself.
Because it's been stated (and we've discovered it to be true) that you become like the five people you spend the most time with - from trivialities like favourite music artist to dealbreakers, yes friendships can have that too.
Do you enjoy what you see in the five individuals with who you spend the most of your time? Do you even like the five individuals with or who you spend the majority of your time?
Protect who you are and who you want to be by surrounding yourself with individuals who reflect your future, not your past.
