We encounter hundreds and thousands of different people in our life. We end up making friends, enemies, acquaintances, etc. out of all of them. And irrespective of the nature of the bond that we share with them, when they leave, they all teach us something or the other — a life lesson, perhaps. Certain memories we choose to outgrow, and certain memories we choose to frame in our heart and minds. The right kind of people that we come across always encourage us to be a better version of ourselves. They are these tangible resources that we should forever cherish.
Good people make our lives better. We must always make an effort to stay in touch with them. Of course, they are bound to make mistakes too. They are humans, after all. To err is our birthright. But we need to remember that we all are gifted with a life that is too short to hold grudges and lose people. Things get screwed up, so what? Start afresh with the people who matter.
We give you some words of wisdom on why you shouldn’t let go of certain kinds of people in your life. Read on.
1. The Ones Who Are Honest To A “T”
In a world where everyone is on the run to either please the others or to make another fall, it’s a rarity that you come across an honest soul. And if you do so, then they surely are keepers, my friend. With the word honest, we just don’t mean to describe truthfulness, they are trustworthy and genuine too. They will inspire you to be more true to yourself and the people around you. And honesty will naturally bring in harmony in one’s life. Also, being surrounded by honest people is good for our mental health (1).
2. The Ones Who Are Good Listeners
To have someone who is there for you is different from having someone who listens to all the sad-talk, boy-talk, career-talk, etc. If you have a person in life who listens to you patiently, while you while away your petty and big sorrows, never let them go. Hold on to them till eternity! Listening is definitely a skill that is hard to find in a person. It builds friendships and bonds into a strong mold (2). At times we just require someone to hear us out more than pacify us, isn’t it?
3. The Ones Who Are Affectionate
A warm hug can pacify a person much more than a talk of 30 minutes. It’s important that you surround yourself with people who are affectionate towards you. It gives you a sense of satisfaction, a security that you have someone to run up to if you ever have a cloudburst of chaos over your head. A bond without any affection will become very platonic in nature. So, if you have a person in your life who is affectionate towards you, just hug them like a panda.
4. The Ones Who Are Humorous
What is life without a whole lot of laughs, right? Humor needs to be a part and parcel of any bond — friendship or love. Having humorous people in your life will keep your everyday spirit on a wonderfully high note. You will become accustomed to taking life as it comes and will never stress (3). We all know that laughter is the best medicine, don’t we?
5. The Ones Who Are Wise
It’s important to have people around who are wiser than us. They will impart knowledge and will never be judgmental about it. No matter how simple or complicated the problem is, you can take their help and find a solution. And they will never sympathize, they will only empathize with you, irrespective of the situation.
6. The Ones Who Are Inspiring
You need to have people in your life that inspire. That way you will know that there are plenty of things out there that you need to still learn and grasp. And most importantly, inspiring souls will always motivate you to dream bigger and achieve your goals. They will be the force behind you being an inspiration to another someday.
7. The Ones Who Are Humble
We always pick our brains to understand what humility stands for. Is it an insecurity when you’re being passive in life? Well, not really. Humble people are known for their stance, their competitive nature. They are confident, yet modest about themselves in their life. They don’t tag themselves as “perfect.” They have a mindset wherein they always want to learn more in life and increase their knowledge house (4).
8. The Ones Who Are Loyal
Any kind of relationship (friendship, marriage, business, romantic, etc.) stands the test of time only when both the parties are loyal towards each other. Being loyal doesn’t mean they will agree to whatever you put forth. They are the kinds who will criticize you for the good, laud you for the right, and cheer for you when you are heading in the right direction.
What kind of people do you never want to let go of in life? Let us know in the comments below.
