It can be tough to know the difference between a true and fake friend at first.
Maybe making friends is hard for you because you’re shy or naturally quiet. Even if you’re not shy, it can be tough to speak with people you do not know well or who make you feel nervous. The fact is, most adolescents feel shy some of the time and some feel shy a whole lot of the time. There’s nothing wrong with keeping to yourself when you do not feel like talking.
If you wish friends, you have to be friendly. That means being kind and thoughtful and learning to talk and listen. Talking without listening is not really a conversation in any respect. It’s only exercising your mouth and voice. If you do not listen to the person you’re talking to, you aren’t likely to make or keep many friends.
Another way of having friends is by sharing. As soon as you start conversations, keep them going by telling others something about yourself. Other kids are more likely to talk about themselves if you share something about yourself. Sometimes, sharing means telling others about what your opinions, interests, plans, and feelings are.
Lastly, to be favorable, you should speak kindly to others and others and be considerate. Additionally, it means showing respect and treating people the exact same way you’d like to be handled. Nobody likes to be bossed around.
Sometimes you may have to be assertive, and sometimes you might even need to talk to individuals in a strong voice to stop them from doing something dangerous. But even then you can be considerate. Polite, respectful talk is one way to exude kindness.
Kind talk is going out of your way to help others through your words. It means giving words of support to individuals that are lonely or depressed and providing sincere compliments to others. It is possible to show friends that you care about them through your words.
Kind talk is adding kindness to someone’s life with your words, especially when they do not expect it. But it can even be more than that. It can also be adding kindness through your activities by doing favours for others.
By taking these steps, you will be learning how to make and keep friends. However you’ll also learn who can be trusted with your friendship and who can not. Both are important to be assertive and self explanatory.
