…that haven’t met yet. I’ve heard that saying before and liked it immediately. I never set out to live life thinking about friends and strangers like that, but believe that saying, I do. Of course, you can’t be friends with everybody (nor would you want to), and you don’t want to treat your young children like friends because they need your boundaries and guidance and need a parent; but for the most part, I believe people do want to meet new friends.
I know, I know, some people are shy and aren’t outgoing. People usually throw in “introvert” when talking about shyness — but for me that definition does not work. On a Meyers-Briggs test I scored smack dab in the middle (well, actually, one more point for the introvert side), and as you can tell from my blog, I am not a shy person. But I am indeed introverted. I get my peace and get centered when I can be alone with my thoughts – usually early morning. While crowds of people are fine and even energizing for extroverts, they (crowds) make me tired.
But no matter what type you are – have you met a new friend today?
