Asking someone to be your friend did not start with Facebook and MySpace. I remember several people asking me face to face to be my friend when I was a little child. As time passes in our lives, we hesitate to request friendships from other human beings, especially in person. Facebook has made this process much easier. I am not the type that gets offended if someone I do not know makes a request to be my friend on Facebook. I either think that they want to make a connection, and maybe they will even end up being a “real” friend to me. Who knows?! When we make a connection with someone, you never know the possibilities. Make it a point to make some new friends this month, online, and also in person. Make relationships that contribute to your social growth, and not those whose wish to limit you and box you up. They are just building their own empire, with the same old people they have cliqued with for years, and they are all better than everybody else, hahaha. We are building an open network, and friendships with others! No membership required 🙂 You are already accepted!
