For some people, making friends seems simple. It’s not a skill that comes easy to me.
There are many reasons. Certainly, a fear of rejection causes most of us to hide a part of our being from the world at large. Perhaps, for me, it’s a skeptical, slow-to-trust nature I observed in my mother.
I think a degree of it comes from basic selfishness. With true friends, the deep connection creates a reciprocal relationship and a sacrifice of time that I’m not willing to invest.
