Finding people that are like yourself and have the same interests and passions as you is absolutely wonderful – but, how do you find them?
Today I want to talk about how to find people that are interested in the same thing as you are and have the same passions, more accurately said, how to find your soul sisters.
1. Get to know yourself first
Before you can attract any of the right kind of people into your life, you first of all need to know yourself. You need to know what you like, what you don’t like, what you are really passionated about etc.
Do some soul searching; read books, try new hobbies, journal. Find your own interests first.
If you don’t do this, then you are likely to just follow what everyone around you does, and that might not be something which is aligned with who you really are as a person. So a very good first step is to first of all get to know yourself.
2. Share your passions
How should people be able to find you, if you do not show your real interests and passions? You might have an Instagram account showing all the parties yo go to, even though you most of all just enjoy drinking tea at home, having great talks, journalling and watching documentaries.
But, if you portray yourself as someone who does the opposite just because you think that is what society wants of you, then how on Earth are the people who have the same interests as you, going to find you? Good question, they aren’t, because what you share and show is not who you really are.
Once you start sharing your real interests, thoughts, ideas, passions – others with the same interests can find you and you can connect. This can be a hard one, because what are other people going to think about you liking ‘yoga, Chinese medicine, herbal teas, crystals etc.’? This is where you need to step outside your comfort zone, and not care so much about what other people might think of you. Be true to yourself, and to who you are as person, and what your interests are – and eventually, the right people will find you.
Start going to events which are exactly in alignment with your interests, whether that be starting a yoga practice, going for a sustainable event, or going to hear an inspirational talk from a person you admire!
3. Take action and reach out
Finding new soul sisters is not something that just happens. However, I gotta say Instagram is such a great platform to find people with similar interests, just use relevant hashtags and then you can very easily find new people.
But, how do you go from being ‘Instagram friends’ to ‘in real life friends’?
You gotta take action.
I have gotten 2 of my amazing friends through Instagram. The first one reached out to me and asked if we should get a cup of something together, and so we did, now we have been friends for over a year. The other I reached out to, and now we have also been friends for a long time – and now all 3 of us hang out together as well, because we share the same interests.
Really, just try to reach out to people – the worst thing that can happen is that they say no thank you, but the best thing that can happen is that you get a new friend for life!
Have you tried meeting people through Instagram or other kinds of social media? Or, have you considered reaching out to someone?
