Daily Lift #720

Open Yourself Up To Friendship

A person who tries to keep everything about himself hidden will not have close friends. Building a close relationship with others requires self-disclosure.

While it is not prudent to disclose personal secrets to everyone, if you want to become close to others, you need to go beyond discussing superficial matters such as the weather and politics, and be willing to tell them more about the real you.

(Pachad Yitzhak - Igros Uk'sovim, p.236; Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness, p.142)
