How to make people like you!



I want to share with you my thoughts on how to make people like you. I have been asked many times "how do I make friends?" or my favorite is "How do I make people like me."
The truth is you don't. You don't "make" people like you, they just do, like you, that is.
I would love to understand, how many people look down on themselves, I mean maybe that person isn't worthy of your friendship. Maybe, you should take a step back and say I deserve better then this person in my life.
If someone makes you feel bad or negative about yourself then they aren't your real friend and you shouldn't be stressing yourself about how to make them like you.

Make them like you.

If you have to make someone like you, then that friendship holds no value.
If you are changing your own thoughts, views and opinions to keep this person in your life, then something isn't right here.If they are causing you to lose yourself to gain them as a friend, then their friendship is false.

Self confidence.

I am not telling you to become a tyrant, but I am asking you to never forget your self worth.
Always remember who you are, where your going as well as where you came from.
You are a very special being, after all there is only one like you, there is no other.

Be true.

Be true to who you are. Your likes, dislikes and everything in between. Don't change for anyone, but yourself. You have to live with yourself for the rest of your life, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for the rest of your days, don't lose one day of your life for someone who doesn't value you.

True or false.

A true friend will be there in good and bad times. They will not only listen, but actually hear what you have to say. This doesn't mean they have to understand or agree with you. A real friend will listen to you and tell you the truth by saying "I have no idea what you just said" or "I don't agree, but that's your view on the matter."

I don't want this post to drag on forever so in closing I am going to leave you with this.

Be you in all that you do. Let those around you see what they are missing. Know who you are and if you don't know that yet, that's o.k. We spend all our lives trying to find out who we are, why throw it all away on someone who doesn't appreciate it?

That's just my two cents on the matter.

    Thanks for sharing. Love reading peoples thoughts. I agree though, you can't make people like you and if you pretend to be something you aren't then those people aren't your true friends, you won them over pretending to be something else.

    Loved this. Such a good read for teens that are so afraid of not having enough friends.
