10 Signs That You’re In a Truly Unbreakable Friendship

10 Signs That You’re In a Truly Unbreakable Friendship

True friendships are unbreakable. It all depends on your perspective on what friendship means. When friendship is done right, there really are no boundaries or borders. You experience a classic story that will forever remain memorable. You may not know it, but there are small things that point to the fact that you are in an unbreakable friendship.

1. You can’t be with someone who they don’t like

There is this unspoken conduct or standard for your friendship. Both of you cherish being together so much that you only want someone who can positively impact your friendship. You will only be dating someone if your friend approves of him or her. If someone is not good enough for your friend, obviously that person cannot be good enough for you.

2. You make important decisions only after talking to them first

You can’t make those big moves without talking to your friend first. As such a huge part of your life, they deserve to play a role in the decision-making. Besides, they would do the same. Such moments solidify your commitment of friendship to each other.

3. You don’t want to hear gossip about them

You would go to war with anyone who says something terrible about them. You will have their back immediately by standing up for your friend and confronting the gossiper. And they will do the same for you with anyone who tries to sling your name through the mud.

4. You are happy for their successes

You can sincerely congratulate them and boast about about their successes. You don’t fake it or succumb to a state of silent envy — you are actually happy for their every success. You are even likely to announce your pride in them on social media.

5. You would never allow them to do something stupid

Before they go all-out and embarrass themselves in front of a crowd, or try to grab their car keys after a few drinks, you will stop them and make sure nothing awful happens. They will do the same for you because that’s just the type of friendship you have.

6. You can borrow each other’s stuff

There are certain items acquaintances cannot share, but friends who maintain an unbreakable friendship see the other person’s stuff as their own. They can share their cars, rooms, expensive electronics, and do these things for each other without expecting anything in return.

7. You can be possessive of each other

You think your friendship should be a priority and you should spend most of your time together. You can be jealous if they find other friends that they wish to spend time with. Luckily, you always come back to each other.

8. You treat every fight with them like a break up

You can’t eat, you can’t sleep, you can’t find peace until you’ve made up. Every fight with someone you have an unbreakable friendship with means a lot of pain to you. You really need to make a wrong into a right with them.

9. You really are not interested in more friendships

You are so cool with your friend that you are fine without any other friendships. You are super lazy about making new friends. In fact, you are not interested in the idea because it seems you are more interested in the energy you put into maintaining an unbreakable friendship with him or her.

10. You have an unspoken trust towards your friend

You do not need to say it or voice it. There are little boundaries in your friendship. Even when you go a few days without communication, you still have no doubts about your friendship.

This Is What Happens When You Move Out Of the Comfort Zone

This Is What Happens When You Move Out Of the Comfort Zone

The pursuit of worthwhile goals is a part of what makes life enjoyable. Being able to set a goal, then see yourself progress towards achieving that goal is an amazing feeling.

But do you know the biggest obstacle for most people trying to achieve their goals, the silent dream killer that stops people before they ever even get started? That obstacle is the comfort zone, and getting stuck there is bound to derail any efforts you make towards achieving the goals you’ve set for yourself.

If you want to achieve those goals, you’ll have to break free from your comfort zone. Let’s take a look at how your life will change once you build up the courage to leave your comfort zone.

What Is the Comfort Zone?

The comfort zone is defined as “a behavioural state within which a person operates in an anxiety-neutral condition, using a limited set of behaviours to deliver a steady level of performance.”

What stands out to me the most about that definition is the last part: “using a limited set of behaviours to deliver a steady level of performance.” How many successful people do you know who deliver a steady level of performance?

The goal in life is to continually challenge yourself, and continually improve yourself. And in order to do that, you have move out of your comfort zone. But once you do, your life will start to change in ways you could never have imagined. I know because it’s happening right now in my own life.

Here’s what I’ve learned.

1. You will be scared

Leaving your comfort zone isn’t easy. In fact, in can be downright terrifying at times, and that’s okay. It’s perfectly normal to feel a little trepidation when you’re embarking on a journey that forces you to try new things.

So don’t freak out or get overwhelmed when you feel yourself getting a little scared. It’s perfectly normal and all part of the process. What’s important is that you don’t let that fear hold you back. You must continue to take action in the face of fear.

That’s what separates winners from losers.

2. You will fail

Stepping out of your comfort zone means you’re moving into uncharted territory. You’re trying things that you’ve never tried before, and learning things you’ve never learned before.

That steep learning curve means you’re not going to get everything right the first time, and you will eventually fail when you move out of your comfort zone. But as long as the failures aren’t catastrophic, it can actually be a good thing to fail because …

3. You will learn

Failure is the best teacher. I’ve learned more from each one of my failures than I have from each one of my successes. When you fail small, and fail often, you rapidly increase the rate at which you learn new insights and skills. And that new knowledge, if applied correctly, will eventually lead to your success.

4. You will see yourself in a different way

Once you move out of your comfort zone, you immediately prove to yourself that you’re capable of achieving more than you thought was possible. And that will change the way you see yourself.

Moving forward, you’ll have more confidence in yourself whenever you step out of your comfort zone, and that increased confidence will make it more likely that you continue to step outside your comfort zone. And each time you do, you’ll prove to yourself again and again what you’re really capable of.

5. Your peers will see you in a different way

Whether we want to admit or not, people judge other people. And right now, people view you in a certain way, and they have a certain idea of what you’re capable of. That’s because they’ve become accustomed to seeing you operate in your comfort zone.

But once you move out of your comfort zone, you’ll prove to other people, as well, that you’re capable of much more than you’ve shown in the past.

The increased confidence other people place in you will bring about more opportunities than ever before.

6. Your comfort zone will expand

The good thing about the comfort zone is that it’s flexible and malleable. With each action you take outside of your comfort zone, it expands. And once you master that new skill or action, it eventually becomes part of your comfort zone.

This is great news for you because it means that you can constantly increase and improve upon the behaviors that you’re comfortable with. And the more tools and skills you have at your disposal, the easier it will be to achieve your goals.

7. You will increase your concentration and focus

When you’re living inside of your comfort zone, the bulk of your actions are habitual: automatic, subconscious, and requiring limited focus.

But once you move out of your comfort zone, you no longer rely on those habitual responses. You’re forced to concentrate and focus on the new action in a way you never do in your comfort zone.

8. You will develop new skills

Moving out of your comfort zone requires that you develop new skills. One of the many benefits you’ll experience is that you’ll be stepping away from the “limited set of behaviors” and start to develop your ability and expertise in new areas.

Living inside of your comfort zone only requires a limited skill set, and those skills won’t contribute much to your success. Once you can confidently step outside of your comfort zone and learn a new skill, there’s no limit to how much you can achieve.

9. You will achieve more than before

With everything that happens once you move out of your comfort zone, you’re naturally going to achieve more than ever before.

Your increased concentration and focus will help you develop new skills. Those new skills will change the way you see yourself, encouraging you to step even further out of your comfort zone.
