How has poor social skills held you back in life❓

Are you have feeling of low self-worth because you can’t “properly” connect with people, nor develop deep friendships.

I don’t know whether you experienced these too. But I did. I still do now. And what I do is I pat myself and encourage myself to do better.

Let me tell you the day I decided to improve my social skills. It was when I realized I was an introvert.

Discovering I was an introvert led me to focus on my strengths in communication and minimize my weaknesses.

This leads me to answer your second question:

How did I improve my social skills?

It was a process. Here’s the breakdown.

1. I read a lot about social skills.

2. I observed people. Then I mirror them.

3. I applied what I read and observed people. Because practice is everything.

4. I adopted the mindset “Building Bridges”.

5. A mindset shift & a hunger to grow.

Oh, and don’t forget to take baby steps. Everyday, commit yourself to improve your social skills.

Even if you don’t feel like it.

Even if you’ve made progress, but still feel socially inept, don’t worry.

I still feel the same way too.

And everyday, I take my baby steps. Because life is an awesome JRPG. I have my daily monsters to defeat! 🙂

Have a good day ✨🌎
