Here’s what’s so fascinating to me now
that I’ve spent time bettering myself and
continue to work on my mindset every day:

I see so many people holler a cry for help,
complaining about their problems, especially
how they’re always telling a tale of some tragedy
pretty much the entire time, and how they
have no friends and want friends.

Yet, when they come to a place such as
this very website you’re on right now and
somebody starts talking to them, they’re
shallow and superficial.

You can tell from the way someone writes back to you.

You can tell from the way they present themselves.

You can tell from the way the conversation goes
if you were to video chat or phone call them.

Almost everyone is all about “fast and me.”

How fast can I get into a relationship and
finally have a boyfriend/girlfriend?

How fast can I get someone to be my friend?

What can I benefit from talking to this person?

All these kinds of questions are selfish, and it’s
no wonder why many can’t maintain good relationships.

What makes this even more sad is many
people go through almost their entire life
never recognizing this.

Here’s a secret:

If you really want to make true friends…

If you really want to have genuine relationships…

Think “steady and them.”

Express a genuine interest in the other person.

Listen more and ask the questions you really want to know about
that indicates you care about what they’re talking about.

Quit playing that stupid game of “is he/she interested
in a relationship, can this person be a good friend?”

Don’t overthink it.

Allow things to develop naturally.

Take your time.

If you’re feeling like you’re “trying too hard” or
“you find it difficult to get a moment of their time,”
most likely that person is not for you.

Do yourself a favor:

Stop trying to be a friend to everyone, saying
scripted bullshit because you see everybody else
doing the same, and you think it’s right to do.

Stop trying “to fit in like everybody else.”

Be you, be genuine in your approach, and
talk the same way you write and speak.

It will go a long way.
