Sometimes a friendship happens unexpectedly. You might have known each other for years. You’ve seen each other around. You’ve even had a few conversations, but you’ve never really hung out. Or maybe it is someone you’ve always disliked.
Truth is, you never really know if you like someone until you actually get to know them. They might be going through the same things that you are going through. They might have had the same struggles as you growing up. They might love the same music or you watch the same tv show. You might have the same passion, the same hobby, the same humor.
If there is one thing that I have learned in the past few years, it is to embrace every single person around you. Give them a change. Get to know them. If you find out you don’t get along, it’s fine. But they might turn out to be your best friend. Maybe even your future business partner. Or at least just a nice person. Someone might surprise you.
