It doesn’t mat­ter how won­der­ful your friends are, if you spend all your time do­ing the same things with the same group of peo­ple (who are prob­a­bly some­what like you), it’s likely to get repet­i­tive, and slowly you’ll grow even more alike. Meet­ing new peo­ple isn’t al­ways easy, par­tic­u­larly if you are an in­tro­vert by na­ture. Look for sit­u­a­tions where lots of po­ten­tial friends are around and get in­volved. This could be at work or col­lege, pur­su­ing sports and hob­bies or par­tic­i­pat­ing in com­mu­nity groups where you’ll have an op­por­tu­nity to meet a lot of peo­ple with whom you al­ready have some­thing in com­mon. Hav­ing many groups of friends from dif­fer­ent gen­er­a­tions, cul­tures and di­verse back­grounds is life en­rich­ing and stim­u­lat­ing. Maybe you have a group of women you reg­u­larly ex­er­cise with, book club friends, per­haps a local mum’s group or those you vol­un­teer with. They will stim­u­late new ideas and fresh in­ter­ests, share dif­fer­ent per­spec­tives and give you a wider net­work to learn and get sup­port from. As a re­sult, you’ll be­come more open minded, dy­namic and flex­i­ble.
