In the past, people built relationships with new friends by going to local parties or clubs. Or they would meet people at work, through school, or through a family connection. Unfortunately, it’s a lot harder today to make new friends because we all spend most of our time glued to our smartphones and computers.
Breaking the Barrier
Many people are shy when it comes to making friends. They’re afraid of rejection, or they feel like they don’t have the time. This is all part of the process and it is not like the end of the world.
Practice makes Perfect
The first step is to accept that your social life isn’t entirely in your control, and that there will be times where nothing seems to work out. At these times, try not to stress about it too much; instead of beating yourself up over every failure you should focus on learning something from the last.
