Everyday life goes better when you don't feel like you are alone with all your worries and thoughts. Everyone should have at least one trustworthy person they can talk to about both pleasant and stressful things. Social relationships may also involve challenges such as loneliness. You don't have to be content with solitude; no one has to feel like an outsider.
Social skills help with communication, interacting with other people, and building good relationships. Dating also requires social skills and a willingness to get to know your partner and their way of living and behaving. In a balanced relationship or friendship, decisions are made together and feel good for both. Social skills can be practiced like any other skill. Everyone can learn new ways to act in difficult situations.
