I don’t know if I’ve ever discussed this topic, but here we go!
You love ‘em, you hate ‘em.
I have many acquaintances, but I only have a few real friends. I am a very picky person. When I let someone into my heart, they have to be a very special person. I try not to get too attached to people because I’ve been hurt before. But sometimes you just have to throw yourself out there!
As I’m getting older, I notice how I seem to be falling into a pattern. I stick with “my group”. I don’t leave people out purposefully, but sometimes teenagers read too much into things.
Over the past year, I’ve been trying to reach out to more than I usually do, going beyond my comfort zone. A lot of people don’t realize how introverted I am when we meet. I can be very outgoing and friendly, but it is exhausting!
Another thing I have been doing is reaching out to old friends that I haven’t seen or talked to in a long time, trying to pick that up as much as I can, or just let them know that I care about them.
So as the holidays come, and everyone is encouraging the holiday cheer, why don’t you reach out to someone who could use some friendliness?
Go out of your way a little bit to make someone happy, even if it is only a smile as you walk past.
I understand this is what many other people talk about, but that just means it is important.
God bless, all.
