Friends For All

Ask Chandara No.17

By Chandara Tep, Reporter

This week an unidentified reader has asked, “how do I make more friends?” Depending on how you perceive the situation you’re in making friends can seem extremely difficult. In truth this process is very easy. It is so easy in fact, it has a single step process. The one and only step you need to do is be yourself.  By being yourself people who would attract people who truly enjoy being around you. The bonds that you form with these people will become stronger with the passage of time. If you pretend to be someone who you are not, that could end in a not so happy ending. If you take a look around you will see some people with hundreds of friends, but you will also see some of them have no close ones. Life is not about making more friends, it’s about keeping the ones you have. It is also important to differentiate the difference between being popular and having lots of friends. Just because you are known by tons of people does not mean they are your finds. Just like intimate relationships it’s nice to set standards for yourself when making friends, incase you receive unwanted attention. Friends are a reflection of what we enjoy so keep that mirror clean.
