When did making friends get weird?

I've always been the type of person who prefers having one or two close friends rather than a large group of them. I think thats kind of an introvert thing. Growing up, we moved around quite a bit, but I don't distinctly recall any particular anxiety about making friends. Between school and sports, friends just kind of happened....more

OLD FRIENDS/NEW FRIENDS.....WHATS CLOGGING YOUR DRAINS?...GET PRESENT.....A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN....CHOICES....PROMISES.....

OLD FRIENDS NEW FRIENDS….I love my old friends that have stayed in my life on purpose….I love my new friends that have entered or will enter….Both give me perspective that the other cannot give….My old friends tell me who I was and the travels I have been on. We laughed together and cried together and built our dreams together……When life sort of took us on separate roads we still remained friends as I merged into new trafffic to meet new people with different personalities….....more

YOUR REAL IMAGE.....MAKING IT FABULOUS....CHANGING YOUR MIND.....WHEN YOU FALL DOWN....29 FOREVER...Wrong Friends/RIGHT FRIENDS.

YOUR REAL IMAGE……MAKE IT FABULOUS…..I simply feel so many people are caught behind their VIRTUAL IMAGE rather than their real image because they simply feel they look better VIRTUALLY than in “REAL LIFE….” But either way, it is our REAL IMAGE that truly matters…..I like to think that my real image is even better than my virtual image as I work much harder on caring for myself in reality than my virtual image. Yes, I think I have a great virtual image and yet my in person image is much more important to me…..The image I see in the mirror as well as in the faces of those I love…....more

CONFIDENCE......WHEN SOMEONE DOESN'T LIKE YOU......WHEN DISASTER STRIKES.....Go To Grandma's House....

WHEN SOMEONE DOESN’T LIKE YOU….I used to get my feelings hurt years ago when I felt someone didn’t like me…..I simply could not imagine why someone wouldn’t like me….I am always nice, polite, kind, thoughtful, and all the other great things…..What is there not to like about me? Are they crazy?...more

DYSFUNCTIONAL FRIENDS......GOOFY PEOPLE......FRIENDS OF FRIENDS...

DYSFUNCTIONAL FRIENDS…..GOOFY PEOPLE…..FRIENDS OF FRIENDS….. I got to thinking this morning about people....more

THE POWER OF A COMPLIMENT.....

THE POWER OF A COMLIMENT…..It is amazing how a person’s face will light up when we say something nice to them aka a compliment……I love seeing that reaction after I have paid them an honest compliment…..Notice how I said “honest?”……A fake compliment is almost always noted and usually doesn’t do much for a person. It ends up causing you to lose your credibility when your compliment is not honest but fake…..An HONEST COMPLIMENT can do wonders for another person as well as endear them to you…....more

FRIENDS WHO SHOULD NOT BE FRIENDS......NOT UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL.....

FRIENDS WHO SHOULD NOT BE FRIENDS….You know I am just as guilty as anyone else……Allowing people to remain at some poisition in my life that should not remain close up and personal or even at all in my life…In other words there are people that for whatever the reason I should have let go long ago but didn’t….I kept holding on thinking maybe I was wrong about them although my Spirit told me I was right…Right in the sense I was wrong to keep them around me in any sense…....more

OCCASSIONAL FRIENDS.....

OCCASSIONAL FRIENDS…..Do you have friends in your life or acquaintances that simply you like but would not want to spend every waking moment with? Most of us do….Actually most of us would not want to spend every waking moment with anyone in particular all the time….We all need some rest in between for ourselves to become our best self….in order to share the best of ourselves with others…If we are so busy with other people all the time we then have no time to nurture ourselves to become our best self....in turn not being able to give back to others.......more

FAIR=WEATHER FRIENDS......

FAIR-WEATHER FRIENDS....by Dianna-BriannePeople come and People go in our lives and yet some do stay forever or at least for a length of time.The people that stay are expected to "perform" at a different level than people that come in and out of our lives.....Not much is usually expected from momentary friends or acquaintances.....but friends, YES, we do expect a lot more normally....more
