Things I've Learned: Be Curious, be Genuine


<a href="">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a> I was never a curious person in school, full of questions, in fact, it was just the opposite, I tried my best to not get the teacher's attention. I didn't like it. I learned to become curious in college. I learned the joy to have my questions answered and to find out about things, in general.

And this is what I am talking about, when you move, after you've had some time to adjust, and you start to meet some locals, be curious! Ask questions, but not in an annoying way, ask questions about life in general, be interested in the people you are connecting with, be genuine.

Most people like talking about themselves, and if you meet a foreigner in your country and they are truly interested in you and in your country, your culture, not judging, but wanting to find out more about it, you will love this person! Believe me, when people move, the first thing they do, is to judge, seriously, I've been there, I've judged a lot!

I know two people who are great at it, one person from Germany and another from Ireland, they are so nice about asking the right questions, you feel so comfortable talking to them, it flows easily.

Being curious is just what can break that gap, that miscommunication and who knows, you might be meeting your friend for life.
