Growing up I moved a lot, my dad was in the military so I guess you could call me a 'military brat' but, not really since I am the youngest of
I never really made any solid friends, but would make friends along my travels, but never kept any close until I was maybe 12-13 I made some
foundation with maybe one or two people.
All through highschool I never really hung out with anyone, I kept to myself quite a bit, I was shy, and was just happy with my hobbies and such.
People knew who I was, they knew they could talk to me, but people never really asked me to hang out or something on a regular basis, it was always
just maybe a party once or twice a year.
As I got older into my twenties this vibe I gave off of not caring what people thought of me was a positive one, I enjoyed being alone and enjoyed
doing my own thing. Then something happened.
I started to want to explore more, and be more adventurous. I got involved with alcohol, bars, clubs, girls, etc. And it just sort of took off to the
point where I became a total jerk, but I was too stubborn to realize that I wasn't who I used to be anymore, my over confidence took over my old
personality, and it took a lot of soul searching to get back to that 'old' me.
I might suggest saving up for a long trip somewhere far away that is more than two weeks. A lot of people go on a long trip either on their own, or
with a group, or even better, volunteering. Sometimes a different culture and more down to earth society can give you that initial push to seeing more
to life than how you look, and how much effort you put into being nice. You must remember, humans aren't stupid, everyone can see the show most
people put on to be happy.
The thing about attracting other people is that you need to be inviting, look happy, and just glow self confidence in what you do. I used to cringe
when I would go out in public and didn't have the shoes, I thought I looked like an idiot, or if I didn't have the latest gadgets or nice car, but I
just oozed the 'douche' look, now I could care less, I accepted I can go out in public with just shorts a T and some flip flops, or go to the park
and play chess. When I set aside my image, I glowed again.
