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.

If you ever want to message me about anything, feel free to PM me and I will answer back as soon as possible.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great day wherever you are in whatever time zone you are in!

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 you’ll end up wasting your time.

You get so nervous, your heart’s racing,
you’re pacing back and forth inside your head,
and you’re just not sure what to do.

Don’t 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 you’re talking to.

Listen more.

It’s normal for the first conversation to be nerve-wrecking
because the first conversation is the hardest.

Don’t be deceived if the first conversation goes great.

They say looks can be deceiving, and it couldn’t be truer than that.

It’s normal to feel like you have a connection with
this person, you feel like there’s a spark, you instantly
feel like this person could be the best friend you’ve
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 you’re establishing
with someone takes time. You can’t 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.

Don’t be so quick to let your guard down and give
away your trust to someone you barely just met.

I’m not saying to act like an arrogant asshole,
but don’t let someone easily in, only for that
person to take advantage of you.

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

Let someone earn those things.

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

You don’t know what’s the other person’s story,
and you don’t know what their true colors really are.

If you take it too fast with someone, you’ll most
likely end up getting hurt real fast too, and if that
happens, you won’t be questioning the other person.

You’ll 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 there’s 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 it’s 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.
