Like my paternal grandfather, I’ve always been a shy person. Due to this personality trait, I have difficulty making new friends. Thankfully, over the years, I’ve made a few wonderful friends who have brought much joy to my life. Do you desperately want to make more friends? Perhaps you realize friends are a necessary component to a happy, fulfilled life. To help you develop lasting relationships with others, consider reading self-help books written by respected people. Also think about going to counseling sessions. An experienced counselor may be able to help you discover why you don’t make friends easily or keep friends long. On this blog, I hope you will discover self-help strategies to improve your social life.
