It can be hard to know the difference between a true and fake friend at first. However, once you know the difference between the two, you should try to make friends and keep them.
Maybe making friends is hard for you because you are 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 don’t feel like talking.
If you wish to have friends, you have to be friendly. That means being kind and thoughtful and learning how to talk and listen. Talking without listening isn’t really a conversation at all. It’s just exercising your voice and mouth. If you don’t hear the person you’re talking to, you are not likely to create or retain many friends.
Another way of having friends is by sharing. As soon as you start discussions, keep them going by telling others something about yourself. Other kids are more likely to talk about themselves if you share something about yourself.
Finally, to be friendly, you should speak kindly to others and others and be considerate. Additionally, it means showing respect and treating people the exact same way that you’d like to be handled.
Sometimes you might 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 polite. Polite, respectful conversation is one way to exude kindness.
Kind talk is more than that too. It means giving words of support to people that are lonely or sad and giving sincere compliments to others. You can show friends that you really care about them through your words.
Kind talk is adding kindness to a person’s life with your words, especially when they don’t expect it. But it may even be more than that. It can also be incorporating kindness through your actions by doing favours for others.
By taking these steps, you’ll be learning how to make and keep friends. However you’ll also learn who can be trusted with your friendship and that can not. Both are important to be assertive and self explanatory.
