#8: Don’t Expect Too Much
While I tried everything I have mentioned above, I realized a little later that I was probably just lucky to make new friends.
What I mean is that when you try to make new friends, you need to understand that it can take a little more time than you expect. After all, friendships take time and become stronger once you’re comfortable with each other.
I might have been lucky to make new friends at my age, but it’s important to not get disheartened if you aren’t making any progress.
I think patience is really important while making friends and with time, you will make some friends you really respect. So, hang in there and wait for the right people to come into your life.
I still grieve for my husband who passed away because he was the love of my life. He was so caring that I never felt the need to make friends, but once he was gone, I knew that life would be very tough for me.
It was extremely depressing to sit alone at home and just wait for time to pass by, so I decided to make new friends. If you wonder about how to make new friends as an adult, these tips might work for you and if they do, I’ll be real glad.
I hope all you young men and women never let go of your true friends since true friendship is very rare to find. In addition, be kind to your parents and make sure that you at least call them once in a while because, trust me, life at an older age could get very lonely.
Call your mother and tell her that you love her and you never know…you might just brighten up her day.
In addition I would like to say that if feel lonely, try not to feel sorry for yourself. To be honest, I did feel sorry for myself at times, but that only began to steer me into depression, so I stopped thinking about loneliness and did everything I mentioned above.
If you want someone to talk to, call an old friend and meet up with new people whenever you can. After all, we live only once.
