My Close Friend

About four years ago I met a man named Ray. He was very polite, quiet and didn't have the best social skills. Compared to me, I'm a lil' crazy social butterfly. I would go out with him to events and noticed he wouldn't talk to people. I asked him about this and he told me he never knows what to say. Also he told me if he did make a statement or comment or wanted to add to the conversation, it would come out all wrong. Well I know he had the ability like anyone else to get out there and speak out and he is very bright. When we were together I would talk to him about it  and over the years he has turned into a completely different person. He has something to say about everything now!! Kinda of annoying at times , lol, but all the better! He also wasn't one to pick on people, but through years of hard work on my part, he now can  pick on anyone, especially me! Too good! He just needed a little help feeling more confident about himself. I think as a human being we all need something the other has. As one you cannot do as well, as two I think you can do anything. So just remember that your voice should be heard, your ideas are important and if someone doesn't want to hear it, too bad!  Be happy and confident in yourself because I want to know what's on your mind. Message me and I'll talk to you online. You can do it!  Take care and thank you for reading my story, much love xxxxx!
