Imagine you’re back in preschool and making friends as an adult doesn’t concern you in the slightest. You see another child playing with a toy that interests you. What does your 4-year-old self do? I bet there is a 95% chance that you walked over to that child and said something along the lines of:
“Hi, I really like that toy you’re playing with. Can we be friends?” This is assuming you weren’t a selfish child that would just walk up and snatch the toy right up 😉 I have more faith in you Blissful readers!
This past week has really made me think about the friend-making process and begin to wish it was as easy as when I was a child. A time where it wasn’t creepy to simply strike up a conversation with a stranger–even when you’re not trying to hit on them. A time where you didn’t seem desperate to ask to be friends. A time where there wasn’t a problem with making friends as an adult. And definitely a time where you didn’t even think about what the other person would say/think of you!
