The internet, especially social media has the power to connect people from all walks of life who has different interest and abilities. But the one mistake most of us make make is to think just because you know each other through social media, is to think we are friends or even know each other well. Even those we know since childhood can be strangers and those we just met can be our friends. Life is a journey take it as it comes, learn from it, be prepared, be open to the idea of meeting new people and making new friends along the way. I’ve met a lot of amazing people since I started my blog and have interacted with readers from all walks of life through my blog.
