Everything that the article talked about is true. How do I know, because my mom has been telling me and my siblings this since I can remember. (Full disclosure: I love and have a healthy relationship with her, she is awesome, but this won't be about her, kind of...) I've asked her how she does it, how can she just walk up to anyone and have an awesome conversation with them? How is she so fearless? Well for one she's a lot older than I am and she's obviously has had a lot of practice, so practice is key! Two she is the most sincere, she truly wants to know this person and cares about what they have to say. She also, through her sincere conversations finds a way to connect to them and before we know it, she's made another friend. So this reading was on point because I've seen it all in practice for years.
