The Truth about Having & Maintaining Friendships

I value people. Connecting with others, engaging in discussions, sharing thoughts, ideas and laughter means a lot to me. Yet, like most people, I have my flaws. I do not always put enough effort into maintaining the friendships that I’ve been blessed with. I can consume myself with my aspirations, my ambitions or simply ruminating over experiences and thoughts I need to let go off. Ultimately, this would lead me to distance myself from others, rather than do what I love most which is connecting.

As I’ve gotten older, I know better. I know I can’t only complain about what I lack in life and disregard the role I play in my own discontent. If you are having issues connecting with people, forming friendships or maintaining existing friendships, I want you to consider the points I highlight below. Then, check out my YouTube on how to have and maintain friendships.
