I am not very good at making friends. I have no idea how to follow the whole “How to make friends: A guidebook for begginers”. I am the type of person that, if you don’t talk to me, I will just assume you don’t like me. Ever since I have moved to Fundao, making friends isn’t hard – just for the simple fact that I am five days a week with a class of eigtheen guys and one girl. We pratically live with each other, which makes you almost be forced to make friends.
I have no idea how Fred and I started talking.
In one day we were just classmates, the other the both of us were calling “dear colleague” to each other. It was cute and it’s still cute the fact that we do in fact still call each other that. We were quick to understand that our knowledge was pratically the same level – two weeks later, we got seperated and things didn’t get better from there on. But before that, we managed to become friends. He has his life, his tastes and hobbies and I have mine. I feel comfortable in his company and the magical thing about our relationship is that I have no idea how it started – it just did. Same with Tiago and Rui.
I have no idea how I became friends with them. I have no landmark to say “in this day, we became friends”. But now, the three of them, are my best friends here. Some more than others, and some in more things than others, but the three of them are the ones who I feel I can trust. I have other people who I like and other people that I adore, but I can feel so well in their presence – I don’t feel judged, compared and nothing of the sort. They are accepting me for who I am, they can talk to me with no problems and most importantly, they look at me for the person I am inside – not what I am outside.
And that is the best thing in the world.
What about you? Do you have any friends that leave you competely safe and confortable? Do you have any friends that you don’t know when you started to become friends? Let me know 🙂
