Take the opportunity today to strike up a conversation with a stranger.
Before your friends were your friends they were strangers. We convert strangers into friends by communicating with them and finding out if they are on the same wavelength as us. But we meet strangers every day, when we go shopping or to the pub or to the gym or at the coffee shop or bus stop etc.
Why do we decide to not convert them into friends? Probably because we don’t have time for more friends – it’s hard enough to see the ones we’ve got already, right? Maybe we feel a bit socially awkward about striking up conversations with strangers ad hoc.
You know what though, we don’t have to try and convert everyone we meet into a new friend. We can just pass the time of day, interact, converse, be approachable, friendly – nice!
Wouldn’t this make the day more pleasurable?
It goes without saying that you only do this in a safe environment – I remind you once more what the sergeant used to say on roll call each day in Hill Street Blues: ‘Let’s be careful out there!’
