7 People You Should Keep For the Next Year

7 People You Should Keep For the Next Year

The holidays have always been a good time to squeeze in either a closet overhaul or some minor cleaning. But we do not only mean things in excess lying around the house. We also mean the people in our lives—who needs to go and who’s for keeps.

In this edition, we list the seven people you should hold on to this coming year and quite possibly for the many years to come.


  1. The Long Time Best Friend

You may think this is pretty much stating the obvious. But admit it, sometimes you and your best friend get “too busy” even for a quick catch up and you wonder if you’ve already grown apart. Stop. Don’t doubt it. After all, you can’t underestimate a friendship that has stood the test of time. Just make sure to reconnect, it will keep both of you sane.


  1. The New Awesome Acquaintance

It’s too early to call it a new-found friendship just yet, but this person is simply awesome you instantly want to be friends. Go on, make the sincere effort to get to know each other, and be pleasantly surprised.


  1. The Trusty Night Owl

No, this person hasn’t yelled Bloody Mary with you in front of the mirror just for the heck of it. In the contrary, he/she has always been the one who helps navigate your demons for when you can’t sleep; and fight your monsters—the ones under your bed and the ones inside your head.


  1. The Happy Crush

Because any given day is a good day to feel giddy upon seeing your crush. Need we say more?


  1. The Ultimate Blood Rush

Life can sometimes be routinary and you’d need that person who can ultimately give you a good blood rush. Because to ask you quite frankly, where’s the fun in monotony?


  1. The No. 1 Fan

You don’t need a knight in shining armor. You just need someone who doesn’t cease to believe in you. Most days, just that is enough to get you by.


  1. The Personal Cheerleader

Forget perky, forget bubbly. While those two words easily come to mind when you say “cheerleader”, the person who cheers you up doesn’t necessarily need to be any of that. Sometimes, they just have this certain connection to make you lighten up in their own quirkiest ways.
