When you meet new people for the first time, do you usually like most of the new people that you meet?Or do you find that you usually dislike new people, unless they can eventually prove after a long time that they deserve your friendship?Perhaps you have never thought about this before. And you may even wonder if it’s really important. Does it really matter very much if you like most people when you first meet them, or if you decide to like them much later, after you get to know them better?Your attitude to the new people you encounter will actually have a big impact on the number of friends you make, and the social life you enjoy.
I think if I've learned anything about friendship, it's to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don't walk away, don't be distracted, don't be too busy or tired, don't take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff
When you don’t like the majority of people that you meet, your friendship pool for making friends is much smaller.If there is one secret to having friends, it’s a simple one, and here it is: Like Other People!If you dislike almost everyone you meet, how many friends do you think you will make with this attitude? Very few of us want to get closer to a person when we sense that he doesn’t like us.If you usually operate with a big long mental list of reasons to reject others, you will assume that other people are also deciding to reject you. If you routinely dislike other people because you are looking for their flaws, you won’t believe that others can really like you. When you reject other people for trivial reasons, you will also assume that others will reject you for trivial reasons.
