I wrote this story because optimism is the most powerful attitude and I believe if more people understood the strength of being positive in most situations, most situations will be positive unto them. The protagonist constantly affirmed his desire and in the end, he acquired his wish. A friend. I also wrote this story because I believe we discover confidence, develop true relationships, and find comfort in putting ourselves in uncomfortable situations. We observe, learn, and grow more when we are outside of our comfort zone. I wish to inspire others to do from their shells.
