Becoming the Kind Of Friend I Wanted To Have

There was a time when I was lonely so I tried to make friends and invite more people into my life. Most people declined the invitation.

I simply didn’t have enough positive things to offer to them and/or I had enough negative things that I repelled them.

I worked on becoming the kind of person and friend that I would want to have in my life, and as I became that person, more people began accepting the invitation to become a meaningful part of my life.

It took time and effort but I love the results.

For example, you have become an important part of my life and look at how great you are! See? It works!
