You might feel like you hate this advice, I did the first time I heard it. But if you’re feeling like you need some new people and experiences in your life, start by talking to the next person you see. This could just be a, “Hello” as you’re walking through the hall or a “How’s your day going today?” while you’re on the elevator – It doesn’t have to be anything fancy or witty or whatever, just get the words out.
Most people want to feel funny, interesting, or even just understood, you can facilitate that by just being brave enough to start a conversation. Forget all the articles you’ve seen about introverts and everyone just wanting to be alone and give it a shot!
