Hard Time Making Friends? These Tips Will Help You Initiate Friendship

Hard Time Making Friends? These Tips Will Help You Initiate Friendship

Friendship is the fuel that keeps life interesting. Imagine a robotic life where you do not have anyone with whom you can chill or unwind at the end of the day. Friends are people with whom you can be yourself without having to worry about needs and requirements or judgements, at least most of the time. They are the layer that lies between your family and the rest of the world and provide you with a balance of sorts as far as insights, outsider perspective, advice for meeting challenges and unadulterated enjoyment go. 

But many times, extreme shyness and an introvert nature can stop people from making friends easily. So how can you initiate friendships and keep them close? Here are a few tips!

  1. Understand Shyness: First of all, understand why you may be shy and how it makes your brain work. Shyness strips you of your security when you are faced with a new place or face. Also, it can lead to dismissive or avoidant behaviour, which keeps us from approaching people and learning more about them. Also, it keeps us anxious and preoccupied and makes us think that we will be met with rejection if we try to initiate friendship. Sounds vaguely familiar? Read on to know more.
  2. Eye Contact and First Impressions: The first way to initiate a new friendship is by making eye contact and following it up with a smile before the person in question averts his or her gaze. This is an unspoken language that is almost always answered similarly.
  3. Greeting: You can now approach the person and start by saying hello. It may be someone whom you have been seeing on your way to class or in the office cafeteria or even someone who lives in your building. So chances are, that this person would have noticed you too. Introduce yourself and ask for the person's name.
  4. Acknowledgement: Use the person's name often to show that you are acknowledging the friendship and ensuring that a bond begins to settle between the two of you from the word go. Offer to introduce this new friend to your other friends as further acknowledge of this new friendship.
  5. Information: In a new friendship, it is crucial to find common grounds without breaking the barriers of privacy. So ensure that you ask neutral questions about hobbies, family, education, work and other such issues without asking the when, where, what and how of things that might have to be explained by sharing personal details. In this way the person in front becomes more comfortable.

Be aware of the reasons that stop you and build your confidence when it comes to approaching people for friendship!

Please tell me how to improve my memory power. I am in a big trouble only because of this. It seems as if one hour for me is equal to three hours. Please help me out. Thanks!

Memory power can be increased by repetition and recollection. Remove all tensions and worries and keep your mind calm when you study. Focus on what you study and understand. Then close your book and recollect what you studied. Write down several times. By this way you can increase your memory.

Dear lybrate-user. I can understand. The present addiction to internet has been created by yourself and therefore you have to force yourself out of the habit. Promise yourself that you will not use the phone for any other purpose than calling. Divert your attention towards other engaging activities like physical exercises, games, entertainment, being with friends, hobbies. Etc. Take care.

Relationships will come and go many times in one’s life. You cannot take it too seriously unless you were thinking of marrying this girl. In fact, this is a common problem with a lot of guys, where you look at the first relationship that comes along as serious enough for matrimony. These are important associations to learn how the opposite sex functions and what happens to you around them, and to make the necessary corrections to become a suitable partner. You have put in a lot into this relationship and it has not worked. Leave it but please learn something from the experience. Besides, you don’t want to be in a relationship where the other person is not interested in you. Quickly get rid of all reminders of this girl, and do not visit the old haunts that you and this girl used to frequent. For some time avoid people, places, and situations that you two enjoyed. In the meantime, please talk extensively to a confidante or counselor about your feelings and thoughts to externalize it out of your system. Do not bad mouth the girl for any reason but go about your life as quickly and normally as possible. Don’t get into another relationship until you have dealt with this loss completely. Keep these three values in mind: be responsible, be respectful, and be functional, always.

Overeating may be an underlying symptom. This needs to be looked into in detail. Certain people over eat in emotionally testing times, stress, while others do so chronically. It is essential that you understand that limiting portions may make you hungry again and again, but there is no harm in eating smaller meals at regular intervals. Infact its better. Your weight and height point out that you are quite underweight and the bmi ratio is about 14.3, which is quite low. I would recommend a thyroid function test for you, if despite eating big meals, you aren't putting on weight. Detailed examination is a must for you.

Birth and death is a process of nature and god. I know you love him/her very much but this is not necessary that if his/her time had finished his /her work and duties had complet in this world then your also has finished. Be practical live your life, love yourself but love your parents and other loved ones too. Whenever you feel sad and dipressed you can do breathing exercise. Or you can consult to a psychologist also. If you want to take any help from us you can contact us.

Dear, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Please post a private question with all the details and I shall help you with those tips and tricks. Take care.

Keep trying for work till you succeed. Keep searching for new job options. Be consistent in your efforts. Remember" if you are not successful, you have not tried hard enough" don't get discouraged. Put in more efforts and you will see, you will have some work. It will bring money, and then you can start dreaming again. Please don't give up. Have faith in yourself and be consistent. You will be successful. All the best.

Cocaine Detoxification

Medical Detoxification is a process that systematically and safely withdraws people from addicting drugs, usually under the care of a physician. Drinking alcohol or using drugs can cause physical dependence over time and stopping them can result in withdrawal symptoms in people with this dependence. The detoxification process is designed to treat the immediate bodily effects of stopping drug use and to remove toxins left in the body as a result of the chemicals found in drugs and/or alcohol.

While at the present time, no proven pharmacologic therapy for cocaine addiction exists, several kinds of medications have been used in the detoxification of cocaine. Withdrawal from chronic cocaine use produces anxiety, depression and intense cravings for the drug. Several types of medications address these issues in different ways.

Antidepressant drugs such as desipramine or a combination of phentermine and fenfluramine have been used to reduce cocaine withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety and depression. Benzodiazepines, tranquilizers such as Diazepam, have been used to reverse anxiety induced by cocaine withdrawal. Amantadine, a drug used to treat Parkinson's Disease, may be an effective treatment for cocaine-dependent patients with severe cocaine withdrawal symptoms and may reduce cocaine craving. Bromocriptine, a drug that works on the brain's dopamine system, has been used to decrease the craving for cocaine during detoxification and to reduce mood disturbance.

Propanolol, a beta-blocker drug used to treat high blood pressure, may be useful for severe cocaine withdrawal symptoms, as it slows down the effects of adrenaline, thereby calming the body's "fight or flight" response to stressful situations. This type of drug has been used to treat general anxiety and anxiety associated with alcohol withdrawal. Propranolol's lessening of symptoms such as palpitations and sweating has helped reduce cocaine craving. Its use, however, is not risk free in patients who have taken cocaine and can be associated with decreased blood flow to the heart and other changes that predispose patients to arrhythmia and a severe increase in blood pressure that can lead to a stroke. Delayed toxic effects are possible. Any use of beta-blockers in this setting requires careful monitoring and caution

Dear lybrate-user. That is clearly the symptoms of anxiety disorder. I think your anxiety is being triggered because you are going out. Could be general anxiety disorder or social anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Hi for increasing body weight, start eating more chapatis and rice with ghee or butter. Take creamed milk upto 400 ml daily. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, take pulses and pulses products. You can eat homemade fried foods but avoid eating from the market. If you eat non-veg then eat 2 to 3 pcs. Of egg or fish thrice a week. Also take 4 to 6 pcs. Of almonds or cashew nuts or some raisins. Must take exercise daily as it helps in better absorption of food and also increases your satiety.
