It was our turn to present. We presented well I was confident when it was my turn to speak. Our group was facilitated well by our teammates. It was organised simple and to the point. My task was what is the acquaintance they choose that one for me because I told them I don’t have friends. I needed to do the research about it. To my surprise, the meaning was a person one knows slightly but who is not your friend. am not a friendly person I don’t like gathering and parties because I don’t like to mingle.
We presented different types of relationships and how to make good relationships

we need relationships
We need good relationships because they increase our emotional being, create stability and sense of security in our lives. Attachment with a loved one means we are cared for, protected and this will enhance survival and growth. Good relationships provide support and
love to our loved ones.
Relationships can be enhanced and strengthened by listening from emotional experience, be prepared to work on the relationship, communicate with kindness and respect, disagree in a healthy manner (don’t bring the past)
