Next letter up for the A-Z challenge of Positive Personality Traits is F - and F is for Friendly. Everybody loves a friendly person - they draw others to them like a magnet because they like people and everybody wants to be liked.
Friendly people are that way because they are interested in others, they aren't narcissistically self focused. They look outside themselves and find other people interesting, they listen and want to get to know others. They have a genuine desire to make a connection and move beyond the superficial.
It's easy to like a friendly person because they are open and want to get to know you. They take the time to make eye contact and find commonality with those they meet. They invest in their friendships and value those they are close to - they go the extra mile to help out a friend in need. They prioritize their friendships and find time to get together and deepen the connection.
Friendship is a two way street, we need to be friendly and we need to find others who return the sentiment. Everyone needs friends - they can be our lifeline in tough times, and our cheer squad in the good times - let's make being friendly a quality that's high on our list of positives.
See you next time for the continuation of Positive Personality Traits - G is for Gracious.
