MY FRIENDLINESS IS NOT MY WEAKNESS!
I was born with the same nature, as my Father, we can start up a conversation with anyone, anywhere at any time. It’s called ‘giving someone the time of day’ there are a lot of people who do not get to have one conversation with anyone in a day.
“A person could be having a bad day and just that smile or greeting could change their mind set.”
I am not ashamed of my friendly, personality, although some people think of it as abnormal. I intend to continue being friendly, regardless of what people may think or feel. I do not believe that I came into this life to just meet a few people, I am here to meet as many people as I can, so when I attend at a social event, I intend on expanding my network.
If I can make a positive difference in somebody else’s life I will strive to do so by taking part in charitable work and supporting my friends by attending their conferences, most of all being a good listener than a talker.
My mannerisms in how I approach a person are in no way seen as provocative, there is no hidden agenda, it just comes naturally, and my aim is to acknowledge that you are another human being.
There are people who do have a hidden agenda to benefit themselves, but to mistake me for one of them you would be seen as ‘delusional’, if you ever thought that I would have these deceitful intentions. Trust me, I would put you straight.
Although I am a friendly person, It does not mean that I am weak or that I trust anyone. “my kindness is not my weakness; it is my strength”. If this was the case, I would probably be homeless and broken.
I am not saying that I am above anybody, or that I am a perfect human being, all I am saying is that I live by my own standards that I have set for myself. I am polite, caring, and welcoming, but at the same time I can spot an unhealthy conversation where people try to overstep the boundaries.
They say ‘never judge a book by its cover’ but my theory is that ‘some books you can read the first chapter, and the ending is so damn predictable’
I am not generalising, but I can say that there are people you meet, that you hope not to ever encounter again.
In everything there must be a balance.
