Since we are social creatures, finding good, healthy friends is a skill to acquire if you have not done so yet. Finding friends does not have to be a difficult thing to do. It does take a little confidence and trust that God has a plan for your life, and a part of that plan is to have people in your life. Don’t be afraid to reach out, but first pray and ask God to put the right people in your life.~ Bill Greguska
Proverbs 18:24 One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
Finding Friends Can Be Easier Than You Thought!
Finding Friends In Life Does Not Have To Be That Difficult!
- Don’t be afraid to do things alone, especially if you feel lonely. Don’t be scared to go places by yourself sometimes.
- If you go out to eat or have coffee on your own, try bringing a book or your smartphone to keep yourself company when there is no one to talk to. Getting out and about is better than staying home alone night after night.
- Consider possibly getting a pet. This is an excellent idea if you’re lonely and would love to have a dog, cat, or another type of pet. Animals can be perfect companions. They are great to come home to talk, play with, and spend time with.
- Call people you know. Being with others is crucial to human relations, even if they aren’t who you want to be with. Practice doing more listening than talking.
- Take the initiative in social relationships. Take a risk by being the first to say hi and smile at others. Do not think that just being there is enough.
- Be complimentary and not critical. Like it has been said, “If you don’t have something good to say, then don’t say anything at all.” Find something honest that you can see the person, and then let them know.
- Differentiate between loneliness and solitude. Isolation is when you are unhappy with being alone. Privacy is when you are happy to be alone.
- Consider joining a gym. Working out and taking care of our health is among the first things that get neglected. If you’re spending less time with other people than usual, try using that time to exercise.
- Realize that you don’t have to be in a relationship to be happy. It may be challenging to see your friends dating others. But you don’t have to date to feel like you’re part of a group. Be open to finding friends, but only date when you’re ready. Practice being happy and at peace with yourself and with others.
A Person Can Be Lonely In A Crowd
- Humans are social creatures who need one another for love, friendship, companionship, and support. Understand that we all get lonely at times. It is a natural part of life.
- Loneliness can seem to hit hardest when going through a transition in life, such as the break-up of a relationship, the death of someone close to you, or even a new job or school change.
- Reach out to God in prayer, and He will put someone into your life. He is always with you even if you feel lonely and sad; He can help you turn your sadness into joy!
- Trust that God has a plan for your life. Take time to figure out what that plan for your life is and follow it; after all, it is critical to deal with loneliness effectively.
- Be sure to get yourself involved in activities. Choose to join a sports team or take a class on something you find interesting. You can also volunteer for many exciting things in your community.
Friendship Quotes To Make You Smile!
Have Friends And Family, But Still, Feel Alone?
- Don’t set out to attend these individual functions with the single idea of finding friends or meeting people. Plan to go with no expectations and enjoy yourself no matter what happens.
- Treat those of the opposite sex as either a brother or sister in Christ, which means getting to know their hearts and what makes them tick.
- Do not try to rush any relationship because of feeling romantically attracted right off the bat. Relationships take time and need to be put to the test of time to know whether or not it is correct.
- Make sure you don’t start feeling sorry for yourself if you feel lonely, but instead, do things to get your thoughts of loneliness off your mind.
- Choose to do something like take a walk or think of things you could do to help others less fortunate, such as volunteering at a nursing home to visit the elderly or getting involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters or different organizations.
