• Stop declining when people invite you to stuff.
  • Stop being picky about activities/food/music/etc.
  • Be vigilant/safe, yet open minded, open to new experiences, spontaneous.
  • Plan trips and events, both budget friendly and splurgy, then actually commit to doing them.
  • Smile and laugh n shit.
  • Compliment people, thank people, be considerate to others even if it’s not always reciprocated.
  • When it is reciprocated, gravitate more towards that person, and gravitate slowly away from people who don’t seem to appreciate you.
