LAUGH. A lot, out loud, and especially at yourself! Life is always more fun if you can laugh at all the silly and even not-so-silly things. And being able to laugh at yourself makes it easier for everyone to laugh with you, too.
DON’T BE AFRAID TO MAKE A FOOL OF YOUR SELF! If you’re always afraid to try, Messing it up means growing up. So don’t be pressured to be always perfect. You’ll also be easier to approach.
BE UP FOR ANY ADVENTURE! Pick an instrument. Join a club. Do something new! It’s nice to stay in your comfort zone, but the best way to expand your circle of friends is to jump right in. Don’t forget to smile. Just remember to….
BE A FRIEND! Even to someone you’ve just met. Treat others with kindness, no matter how hard it may seem. Mean and aloof people rarely make friends. So always….
BE INTERESTED! Ask questions and listen to them. Getting to know someone involves giving and taking. No one wants to be bored senseless with a, “Me, Me, Me!” monologue.
All you have to do is SHARE! – stories, jokes, and food. Everything’s better when you have someone to experience it with. So share the moment no matter how embarrassing it may be, crack that joke no matter how corny it seems to be, and split that cookie no matter how small it is.
