Finding Your Circle While Adulting: Embrace Those Challenges and Unlock Your Potential


Hey there, young adults, this one is just for you! Let's have a real talk about the people in our lives. If you’re surrounded by folks who don’t challenge you, you might be in the wrong circle. It’s crucial to find new friends, build a supportive network, or even love some people from a distance if needed. Not everyone will understand who you are and what you’re capable of becoming, and that’s okay.


Think about it: Growing up, we often felt our parents were wrong for pushing us in positive directions we didn't want to go. Maybe they encouraged you to study harder, join a club, or avoid certain friends. At the time, it might have felt like they didn’t get you. But here's the truth: they saw more in you. They believed in your potential and wanted you to succeed.

Let’s put this into perspective with some common life examples. According to recent studies, about 70% of college students change their major at least once. This shows that finding your path isn’t always straightforward. You might be feeling lost or unsure, and that's normal.


Surrounding yourself with people who motivate and challenge you can make all the difference. For instance, a study by the National Center for Education Statistics found that students with a strong support system are more likely to graduate on time.

When someone in your life challenges you, it’s because they see your potential. Maybe it’s a teacher pushing you to submit your best work, a coach demanding you train harder, or a friend encouraging you to step out of your comfort zone. These people are gems. They want nothing but to see you win. Embrace the discomfort and understand it’s a part of growth.


Remember, it’s okay to distance yourself from those who don’t support your journey. Focus on building a circle that lifts you up, celebrates your successes, and pushes you towards your dreams. I want to see you win, and I believe in your ability to achieve greatness. Keep pushing forward, embrace the challenges, and know that your future is bright!
