Hello sweet peas!! 🙂
So today was my first official day of school! 😀 And honestly I am loving being back… The moment when all my friends came together in assembly I was just smiling like a loon I swear 😉 Plus, I’m super excited to get into this year 🙂
Part of my school role this year is that I am a “peer support leader” to five year 9’s in my form class (I’m year 12). It was really interesting to have to meet five new people, who I also have to provide guidance to. We haven’t really had any new students enter our year since I started in year 9, so I was feeling a bit out of practice when I met the girls! 🙂 So, the long and short of this post, it reminds me of first impressions.
First impressions are said to be a deal breaker sometimes for relationships with people, and I half agree, half disagree with that. When I met my three friends at school in year 9, I liked them all instantly 🙂 Some of the ones I was a bit iffy about turned out to not be good friends, and my initial gut instinct was correct. However, I feel this logic doesn’t leave room for change, for the situation someone is in, and how they react to it. Myself definitely when I started in year 9, am an example of this. I was incredibly shy, and because of this made up for it by being noisy, and having a bad case of verbal diarrhoea haha! 😀 However, one of the first girls I met didn’t judge me for my nervousness, and actually talked to me, and I was so amazed that someone could so easily be my friend. Fast forward four years (?!?!?!) and she’s one of my closest friends, and told me today that I needed to write another blog post! 😀 ❤❤
First impressions can sometimes be how you judge if you are going to make friends with someone, and can be the building blocks of a great relationship. But they can also prevent us from furthering a relationship with someone, and finding a relationship that you really cherish.
Give people a chance to prove themselves, but also trust that gut feeling. I hope when you all go to make friends in the new school year, or wherever you are, that you bare this in mind 🙂
I would love to hear your stories of first impressions, and your thoughts about it too 🙂
I hope you are all having a brilliant day, and thank you to my dear friend for telling me to post today!! 🙂
