Challenges and Strategies of Making New Friends

Making new friends, when you relocate or simply outgrow your old friends is a challenge.

I moved form Montana to California 3 months ago. I didn’t know anyone or have a job. I am single and 47. I am a mover and a shaker, a very outgoing person. I am a mentor for many, and yet even I face the same challenges in making new friends.

Challenges I see:

  1. Insecurities.

  2. Lack of communication skills.

  3. Busy.

  4. Lost the art of hospitality.

  5. Hard time accepting new people.

  6. Not sure what they want or like doing.

  7. Lack of imagination.

Take The Lead And Say Hello:

  1. Find a church that you like and serve when you are able. Donating your time to worthy causes is a great way to find other like-minded people.

  2. Schedule at least once a week attending a new group, someone will click with you.

  3. Invite someone to go to dance lessons with you, strong bonds are developed when learning something new together.

  4. Attend Women’s Expos.

  5. Learn the art of communication and talk to strangers as if they were family.

  6. Practice hospitality, invite people over after a function or out to eat.

  7. AND last but not least, invest in your own personal growth.

People are dear to my heart, and yet even I realize when people stop learning, growing, and giving they have little to nothing to add to the relationship and it often dies. I am a giving person, but I only have so much to give.

 

Whether we are friends for forever or out grow each other…

I will always cherish the time we spent together. I am who I am today because of the influence of you on my life.

All my love,

Sharon L. Nash
