So nice of you to drop by, thank you so much for doing so! In case you don't happen to know who I am, my name is Mark. I'm a 23-year old who's currently building a life that I want to enjoy for the long term. This blog is designed for young adults who seek guidance and clarity on the problems that life often throws at us. What you will gain from reading my blog entries is the wisdom that I've learned along the way that has helped me create and live a better life. You can absolutely do the same. If you happen to read some of my oldest entries, you will notice how I've changed along the way compared to now.

I want to remind you that we all go through challenges and obstacles. We can't go back and change what happened. All we can do is our best at the end of the day and learn from experience so we don't end up repeating the same mistakes.

They say that it can be scary when you approach
someone for the first time, and you fear what could
possibly happen.

You play the game inside your head whether to
approach the person you see in front of you,
or if youíll end up wasting your time.

You get so nervous, your heartís racing,
youíre pacing back and forth inside your head,
and youíre just not sure what to do.

Donít overthink it.

Have courage to walk up to the other person
and start a conversation.

You never know what someone needs at any given moment,
and you may be surprised at what sparks.

Have a genuine interest with the person youíre talking to.

Listen more.

Itís normal for the first conversation to be nerve-wrecking
because the first conversation is the hardest.

Donít be deceived if the first conversation goes great.

They say looks can be deceiving, and it couldnít be truer than that.

Itís normal to feel like you have a connection with
this person, you feel like thereís a spark, you instantly
feel like this person could be the best friend youíve
ever had, or you feel like they could even be a good
fit for you as a boyfriend/girlfriend.

However, I urge you to give it time.

That connection, that rapport youíre establishing
with someone takes time. You canít figure all that
out in a week, in a month, in a few months, or even
a whole year for that matter.

Take your time getting to know the other person.

Donít be so quick to let your guard down and give
away your trust to someone you barely just met.

Iím not saying to act like an arrogant asshole,
but donít let someone easily in, only for that
person to take advantage of you.

Let someone show you that theyíre the right
person for you; let someone show you that theyíre
worthy of your trust.

Let someone earn those things.

I understand itís hard to resist the temptation
to take things too fast with someone, but I urge you
not to fall into that trap.

You donít know whatís the other personís story,
and you donít know what their true colors really are.

If you take it too fast with someone, youíll most
likely end up getting hurt real fast too, and if that
happens, you wonít be questioning the other person.

Youíll be questioning yourself and blaming yourself,
causing you to develop these skewed generalizations
about people and to develop insecurities about yourself.

Not everybody will be the same exact way.

Remember that.

There may be people out there who just want the benefits,
but there are people out there who genuinely want to love you.

It may not work out with certain people, but never
let one or a few bad experiences cloud your judgment.

If thereís truly something there with the other person,
it will come to fruition. However, be mindful of the
little things you do every day to build that trust.

Remember that itís the little things you do over
a period of time that allows a genuine, long-lasting
relationship to develop.

Real genuine relationships take time to build.

Don't plant seeds and expect to harvest the next day.

Take the time to cultivate those seeds you plant.
