Shin's Unpublished Posts - How To Make Friends

Here is another one. Looks like she started it but then stopped. I still think its intersting to see her train of thought and her self reflection.

Shin's post 6 Dec 2008...

A blog reader asked me an odd but interesting question. He/she wanted to know how I make and keep friends. I'd never thought about that before.

When we were kids, we moved around and changed schools a lot. From second grade (age eight) to high school graduation (age seventeen), I went to seven different schools. My mother told me that each time we moved, I was the least bothered among my siblings about leaving my friends behind and also the first to make new friends when we got to the new place. I liked hearing that about myself. It tells me I can adapt easily to new situations. I suppose it also suggests I don't form meaningful, long-term relationships, but from all the old letters I've dug up from my past, that doesn't seem to be the case either.

That's a very profound and complicated issue which I think many of us find it so unexplainable...is not a balance and not 1+1=2...but I think is Shin's personality : love, sincere, giving, "no hiding or wearing mask" though she's not perfect...How many of us are not wearing a mask and is a truly "a giver of heart"?
