Hello and Welcome to Long Lasting Hang Out Friends.
This Group Is part of Making Real True Lasting Friendship, and It's all about creating a supportive long lasting friendship. It's also part of Enter Your Mind Center, INC. Nonprofit mission to help us stay together. ** ( This is not a singles group, but it is part of learning, growing and supporting true friends who are vital to a fulfilling life). True friends help us distress, and challenge us to follow our dreams, while we cheer each other on when times get tough or when we need an extra push. Although true friends bring tons of values to our lives, many people struggle with how to create and sustain the true long lasting friendships they desire.
What is this group all about?
*1: Initiate spending time together. Don't just join the group and wait for someone else to RSVP first, instead jump into the driver’s seat and take action and RSVP, so you can create the friendships you want to sustain.
*2: Communicate. We will discuss what this means and how to do it right. For example, if your new friend rocks, you make sure they know it.
*3: Put your time and energy into the relationships that reciprocate.
*4: Be positive. Not that you need to hide when you’re feeling down, but lets leave the upset feelings for other support groups. (it’s important to express your feelings), however we don't want to make this group about complaining all the time, since people won’t enjoy being around you. And we are here to make long lasting friendship.
*5: Express gratitude. Tell you friends exactly why you’re thankful for having them in your life.
*6: Don’t make assumptions. If you feel hurt or angry by your friend’s comment or action check in with me and with them about it in a way that doesn't make them feel accused.
*7: RSVP and Show up. If you want to build friendships, go out of your way to hang out with new lasting friends.
*8: Help us organize this group, I can't do it all by myself, and we can plan happy hour after work, reach out to a classmate, plan BBQ and potluck's, Movie nights, Karaoke Nights, Clubbing, Coffee Shop, Book Stores, Restaurants, Day on the Beach, Museums, Game Nights, Walking, Hiking, Comedies, Traveling, Cruses, Camping, Charity events, Fundraising, etc. Remember, the more you show up, the more opportunities you’ll have to make friends.
*9: Keep up the momentum. If you want to build a meaningful, lasting friendship, you must spend time with your friend on a regular basis. If you don’t, especially in the beginning, your friendship will likely fizzle out.
*10: Join Our Community Discussion Form. As adults, we don’t have the convenience of the classroom and the playground to make friends. We must join here and have our own community.
*11: Be present at important events. When a friend invites you to their birthday celebration, wedding, baby shower, house warming party, etc. RSVP & SHOW UP! You were invited because your friend values you and wants to share her special moments with you. When you don’t show up, it sends the message that the friendship is really not that important.
*12: Except when there’s overwhelming evidence of hurtful intentions, be generous and cut your friends some slack. Forgive them when they make a mistake, and don’t take everything they say and do personally.
*13: Create positive stories about friendship and believe them! Avoid story's such as“I get along better with men,” or “Women are so dramatic and gossipy, I’d rather just not have friends,” or “I don’t have time to maintain friendships.” These end up becoming self-fulfilling prophecies. :(
*14: Schedule it. Life can get busy. To make sure you nurture your friendships, schedule a date at least once a week or twice a month to get together. It’s OK if you don’t have a plan in place yet, all you need to know right now is that the time is reserved for you and your friend! Now, that everything is out here, this group is for "Long Lasting Friendship" so it doesn't matter if you are single, straight, gay, lesbian, married, parent, single parent, separated, divorced, widower, student, colored, short, tall, orthodox, religious of any organizations, atheist, agnostics, Buddhist, Kabbalist, spiritual, bla bla bla, in other word if you are looking for long lasting friendship, here is the right place to start your unconditional love and nonjudgmental long lasting friendship.
