Recently I’ve been a little down. It’s hard to be so far away from my friends and family all the time and it’s even harder when I can’t work here for another month or two.
I’ve met some new friends here, some of which are good company for a beer or two, while others are good company when you’re bored on a Tuesday evening.
New friends mean a lot of new things. You have to get to know one another, try out things the other person likes to do, see what each other is like when you’re drunk AND when you’re sober.
I’ve come to realize that some people are meant to be in your life and others simply just do not have a place. It’s not always apparent from the beginning, sometimes it takes awhile to see someone’s true colors but eventually they always show.
One of the worst things I think a friend can do is speak before they listen. I can only forgive so many times for the same actions.
People always have a lot to say. The biggest communication problem is that we do not listen to understand, we listen to reply.
Take time to assess a situation before you react, it’s always worth it.
