Today, I told my father I was tired of being an outsider – that “it’s time for me to make a change so I can make more friends.” He hugged me and said, “Finding a true friend isn’t about transforming yourself into the perfect image of what you think people want. It's about being exactly who you are and then finding a person who appreciates that.” MMT

The changes you make, though, don't have to change who you are. Just engaging people more might be all it takes, or forgiving someone an awkward approach, or by putting precisely who you are *out* there--into the world. When people don't have friends it's almost never because nobody would like them--it's because they either ignore possibilities, avoid possibilities, or reject possibilities.
