Hello there, Bob. Let's pick up where we left off last time, shall we?
Hi there, Crystal. Sure we can. We were talking about how I can build better friendships with people my age since I don't do that often with me being an only child and dealt with more adults
Yes, not saying that's a bad thing at all. But think back, was it easier to be around kids your own age, or their parents?
I felt that it was easier to deal with and be around adults because that's my life at home since it's just me and my parents. My only company
From our previous time of doing a Lifestyle Assessment, I feel that being around adults has helped you mature quicker and even helped you in how you are in a working environment, correct?
Yes it has! I have so much respect from my older coworkers, and like to hang out with them. But I want to make friends with people my age at work, and students here on campus too. I don't know if I can do it, succeeding at life like you said
Well how can I fit in with people my age? I feel awkward sometimes and that they won't get me.
Ok, I hear what you're saying. I think you can do it, you can make friends your own age wherever you're at. It will take time, but you have to know surrounding company.
How about going to a club meeting of your interest on campus? Or hanging out with the coworkers your age instead of the older ones and the manager at work?
I like reading comic books and there's a group on campus who reads and collects them
I agree! I am already contributing to society by working, next is building friendships and finding a partner, and I will have succeeded at life!
That's a great idea and a good start for you! That would put you on the right path to building friendships with people your age. Look at you succeeding at life!
