We need a lot of energy to start socializing with others. When we start to talk, we have a bunch of wonderful ideas in our mind. Maybe some people think that it’s hard to talk in front of people when all eyes are on you. There’s nothing wrong with being introvert. In fact they can be tremendous power. But, we must communicate with people on daily life to help each other. Because socialisation is like a must. There are five tips to help you to be more social. Let’s into them.
First, Join a club or a hobby. If you’re not social person, maybe start with this can be very hard. But, you have to force yourself to do this. You should join a club or find a hobby for people with similar interests of your surroundings. This will help you break the ice and give you decent level of comfort to converse with this people. You maybe be not cognizant talking to others fluently when you talk with people who have same interests with you.
Second, Say more than just ‘hi’. In the school, we meet with many people and maybe you don’t know who they are. Maybe you just see everyone once in a while. Everytime you see them, you just nod your head and say ‘hi’. The best thing to be more social is force yourself to say more than just hi. Talk about something happened or notice anything they are wearing. Avoid negative issues, like politic, something controversial and other negative topics. It’s not awkward for you to start talking with others if you always do that.
Third, Bring out your rough edges. Don’t act like you’re perfect. If you have mistake and laugh it, share stories about your failures and talk about how stupid you are. This is not self deprecating but this will help you to make connections and conversation with people who know you as more authentic. People don’t care if you’re perfect. They just care about you’re at ease with yourself. Don’t start preaching and don’t be a judgemental towards others for their opinion. Let’s your personality shine and don’t be afraid any part of you.
Fourth, Start talking to the strangers. It’s really scary at first when you’re talking to strangers. But you must try to start going and talking to random strangers. You might come to supermarket, the first thing to do is you give compliment the cashier. It helps you to be more social or brave to talk with strangers. In other situations, maybe you can talk with people who sit beside you in public transportation, in waiting room or asking waiters the delicious food. Just talking the little bit more can make a more connection.
Last, Don’t be afraid to seem like fool person. In the high school probably the biggest problem for me and a lot of people is we are afraid make a fool out of themselves. If you something offered to them on the bus or public transportation, nobody will think about it. But, everybody will remember you if you fumbled while trying to say something at least for the funniest part. People just insecure as you are. They don’t have much time to worry about you because they’re too busy to worrying themselves. So don’t afraid to talk with other because you just afraid people moke you when you fumbled.
So, these are methods to help you to be more social and comfortable talking with others. It’s difficult when you try to talking with others, but with practicing you will can do it. I believe that everyone can conquer their fear to star talking with others if practice everyday, everywhere and everytime. Let’s be more social.
