I regularly speak on the types of people you should surround yourself with and how it has such an impact on who you are as a person. I saw something on Facebook not to long ago, and it wasn’t even when I was seeking blogging inspiration. A lesson here to be had that inspiration can come at the most random moments. As I was saying, I saw a post that listed 5 types of people you should surround yourself with and I was like, this would be a perfect blog topic. So here we are.
I whole heartedly believe that those you surround yourself with have such an impact on who you are and who you will become. The right people will support you through your good days, your bad days, your anxiety, your depression, the days where you don’t want to do anything.
Inspiring people make you inspired. It’s like it rubs off on you. Surrounding yourself with people who are amazing and inspiring is one of the best things you can do. They encourage you to do better because they make you believe in you.
I know it can be annoying sometimes to have that overly motivated friend that is always doing something, but let it be a lesson for you. Use their motivation to motivate yourself. I feel like motivation has a ripple effect, you seeing someone else motivate usually makes you want to become motivated and then you might motivate others too!
Surround yourself with those that love deeply, and love them deeply back. We can learn so much from being around those people who love without limits. Having people there for you no matter what and love you no matter what is something we often take for granted. See how people love you can help you to love yourself.
How amazing is it being surrounded by passionate people? Even if your passions differ, there is something so addicting being around people who are passionate about what they do.
To be me this is one trait that I find the most important. I love people who have grateful hearts. And that doesn’t mean they have an abundance of material things. A-lot of the time, people who are grateful don’t have much in terms of ‘things’ but instead they are grateful for things we cannot see. Such as love, family, health, internal peace, self love. Let’s learn to be grateful for those things and grateful for the grateful friends.
What I have learnt from writing this post is that all of these types of people can have a real impact on us. They can influence us to become better people, more loving people, more grateful people. You should surround yourself with people who encourage you and want you to become a better version of yourself. Don’t allow people to bring you down, they wouldn’t do that if they really loved you and cared for you.
You deserve people in your life that hit all 5 of these things and more. You deserve to be loved whole heartedly and nothing less. Don’t ever forget that.
Absolutely. Our environment has huge influence on our lives.
For sure! We need to make sure that we surround ourselves with things and people that are good for us!
Oh gosh I love this post so much! Thank you for sharing!
Thank you so much! So glad you enjoyed it😊
While reading this I thought about which of the people in my life fall under this category and they are truly the angels I’m lucky to have and they really do form a positive environment for me. Goes to say how important a good support system is!
Your support system is everything! So very important to keep you balanced!😊
Really good post. I think I’m the motivational friend and the grateful one too. I’m surrounded by people that have all the qualities listed and it feels really good.
Isnt it the best feeling👏🏻 i think we forget how lucky we are to be surrounded by great people!
I’d love to say that I am a bit of all you’ve suggested. I truly value friendship and family. I don’t use the word friend loosely the few friends I have I consider them sisters. Hey Olivia I have a question unrelated to your blog post but since I’m here. What web hosting site do you use and or recommend for new bloggers. I don’t know if I saw it in any of your other posts.
I love that! I do the same thing, alot of my friends i call sisters too!
I actually use WordPress for my blog! I dont host it seperate from WordPress😊
I have the premium plan which means i get access to premium themes! I’d recommended doing that and then personalise your home page to your liking😊
If u have any other questions i’d be happy to chat if u want to email me or contact me on Instagram!
Thanks so much. I will take you up on that offer. 😊
Awesome! Look forward to chatting with you!

Thank you 😀 I am doing better than last week when I was sent to the hospital. I am so happy to be out of the hospital and home again! 🤗
What a lovely post! I might do my own version sometime in the future if that’s okay! 🙂 Truly a great idea. We are energy beings and surroundings ourselves with others that are on the same wavelength as us is so beneficial x
Of course! I’d love to read your view point on the topic 🤗
Such a creative post and yeah I totally agree with this!🥰😄
Thank you so much!
Your welcome 🤗
Lovely and poignant post!❤️ Those are five very necessary types of people to have around. I would also like an honest person I can ask for advice and opinions and realists who don’t hesitate to point out flaws.
Yes! For sure! Honesty is sooo important!
Thank you for sharing that!
the positive but realistic friend is one I would add to the list :))
Yes! Love that!
I like to be surrounded by people who speak the truth and I am allergic to lies & liars. 🙂
Yess, truthful friends are very important!
You are most welcome🌹

I love this post! We often don’t realize it but the people around us play a huge role on who we become and how we act. It’s so important to surround yourself with people who enlighten you and push you further! I might also do my own version of this blog post if that’s okay with you 😊💖
Oh for sure they do!
Of course not, just tag me in it so I can see what you write 🙂

Hi Olivia, I did my own version check it out at https://theprettythoughts.com/the-12-types-of-people-you-should-surround-yourself-with/ Hope you enjoy reading it! Thank you for inspiring me 🙂
Right Olivia but we also need some friends who can directly give and suggest constructive criticisms and tips. Because I think they are very much essential for our Upliftment, growth and development.👌
Agreed! It’s all about their approach, and whether they do it out of love or not. It doesnt matter what you say, its how you say it that counts.
