When you’ve had a bad day at work, you want to be able to laugh it off and move on. Being able to share that with someone helps you do that. When you’re on a date, you want to be able to have the conversation that is going to make them smile and give you the happiness you’ve been wanting. When you’re feeling low, you want to be able to just feel better.
Being able to talk about your problems with someone helps you stay positive and healthy. It makes the other person feel understood and you feel better when they feel understood. It also encourages you to open up and talk more.
Like me, you probably feel that talking with a friend is a great way to be more vulnerable and honest. But youve probably had a few bad ones too. One of the hardest things for me to do in my old job was to be honest around my friends. I had to figure out how often to tell them, and when I did tell them, I had to do it in a way that felt right.
The best way to do it is to talk about it. Don’t just tell the person, tell them your story. This is especially true when you’re talking with someone you haven’t had a chance to talk to for a while (like a friend) and you want to say something to make them feel more comfortable. It also lets us know what you like and don’t like about each other, which is a huge help in forming a bond.
This is a great way to talk about your relationship, because it lets you know what you like about your mates and what you dont like. If you are getting along well, you can even come up with a few phrases you call them with that will help you bond. This is especially helpful when youre having a conversation with a friend who doesnt know you, because it forces them to be comfortable with you.
Another plus to this is that it’s a great way to have a conversation about how someone’s your best friend. Its like an icebreaker, but you don’t have to really know each other to do it. So if youve been best friends for a long time, you can tell your friends that while you’re both a bit shy, you aren’t afraid to talk to each other about anything.
Speaking of shy, one of the challenges I faced at the end of our game of thrones series was how to bring that out of people. I think I have a pretty good idea of how to do it, but I had a lot of trouble getting my friends to actually do it. This is because, once again, I had to remember how to be polite, how to not make people uncomfortable, and how to make the conversation interesting.
I think one of the biggest challenges for any relationship is getting them to actually say no to you. As you are trying to make your friends believe that you are not just there to play games, but that you are actually into them, the best strategy is to let them believe that the game is over when you say that you are not playing anymore.
I am not going to lie to you, but sometimes my relationship with my friends can be more like a game than a real relationship. I have to keep reminding myself that the only person I am trying to be is me, and that I have to constantly remind myself that I can be anybody I want to be. And when I want to be anyone else, people just laugh when I try to push my friends in directions they do not wish to go.
And while I know the game is over, I still feel like I should try to get them to think about their relationship with me in a new light. But I’m not sure how to do it. I have no idea if I’m being a pushover anymore, or if I’m just stuck in a rut where I’m trying to act like everything is okay and I’m not really all that interested in anyone else.
