If you’re a fan of The Big Bang Theory, you’ll remember that in one episode, socially awkward Sheldon, the show’s resident genius, tries to create a scientific formula for making friends.
The thing is, making friends isn’t just a matter of following a set of steps. It requires empathy, vulnerability, and a genuine interest in other people.
That said, Sheldon’s algorithm is a funny reminder that we all struggle with socialising at times.
But what about when we want to be alone?
I get it, sometimes we just need to disconnect and recharge. But let’s not forget that some of our friends may be going through a lonely weekend and could use a little company.
That’s where we come in. A simple text, email, or video chat can make all the difference in someone’s day.
And who knows, maybe you’ll even enjoy some quality time with your friend.
Whether we’re trying to crack the code of human connection or simply reach out to a lonely friend, we should remember that we’re all in this together.
So go ahead and try out Sheldon’s friendship algorithm if you must, but don’t forget that the best way to make friends is to be a good friend yourself.
Wishing you a lovely weekend of friendship.
