When we experience a change in our lives, such as getting a job or going off to school, there is an opportunity to meet new people and build new relationships.
Not knowing many people can be a bit scary at first, but don’t let feelings of stress stop you from making new friends.
- Most people feel some stress when meeting new people and making new friends. Instead of thinking about meeting others as a “stress”, imagine how exciting it can be to develop new friendships and discover new ways of looking at the world.
- You get to choose who you will be friends with - not every new person you meet will be an automatic friend. The more people you meet, the more likely you will be to find someone who will become a friend.
