I’m often anxious about meeting new people. Will they like me? Will I like them? What are we going to talk about?

I recently had these questions while visiting longtime friends who had another friend staying with them at the same time. My fears were unfounded.

Each of us comes from very different backgrounds yet we quickly melded into a strong friend group. My new friend spearheaded our dinner conversation by asking thought provoking questions (i.e. What is your best/worst work experience? If you could travel anywhere, where would you go and why?). These questions brought out stories that those of us who had known each other for 25-plus years had never heard. Everyone learned new things about longtime and new friends.

I’m so pleased to have made a new friend and spent quality time with longtime friends!

The moral of my story is don’t let your apprehensions keep you from meeting new people and experiencing new opportunities. You may find a new friend!  #TidbitTuesday  #TreasuresandTidbits
