Friendship is found in the strangest of places with the strangest of people at the strangest of times. One of the places to find new friends, build new relationships and grow exponentially is in Toastmasters.
Toastmasters is a friendly and supportive place where friendships are naturally formed. Friendship is considered to be a platonic relationship between two people who care about each other.
As you cultivate the relationship…spend time with each other, communicate with each other, share your thoughts, interests and experiences with each other, a bond will undeniably develop.
Through your connections the friendship will grow, deepen and become stronger. You will experience a level of comfort and a sense of belongingness with each other as trust begins to develop.
In addition to trust, the amount of time you invest in each other, the commitment, respect, and support, all contributes to the making of a quality friendship.
For me “True” friendship is all about valuing a person. The value will always be seen in the “time factor” that the more you value that person, the more time you want to spend with them and visa-versa, the less you value that person is the less time you want to spend with them. Continue to build on the friendships you have formed and is forming, the memories you will share will last a lifetime and you can have those memories to pass on to future up and coming Toastmasters.
Toastmasters is the place to build lifelong friendships, so reach out and connect with all Toastmasters near and far. Never shy away from forming friendships in life…you never know where life will take you or who you will end up with as a true friend.
