But sometimes people get stuck before even starting to look for these kinds of friends. Here's what holds them back—and how to move past it:

  • Stepping Out: We like what we know, but that can stop us from finding something better. It's time to try new things!

  • Look at Your Friends Now: Think about which friendships make you feel good and which aren’t.

  • Go Out and Meet People: Start joining in on stuff that interests you—you’ll meet others who like it too!

  • Make Real Friends: A couple of true buddies are way better than many just-okay pals.

Don’t just take our word for it—science says having positive peers can make your life sweeter (like Harvard research shows).

So remember, being surrounded by the right people isn't just nice—it makes everything better! Leave behind the old worries and go find some awesome friends who help each other shine brighter.
