Humans are social creatures that thrive on spending time with others in friendship, family, work, and romance. These connections provide happiness, love, fulfillment, and a lot of opportunities in jobs and general safety. That said, the modern era makes it easy to become disconnected and feel alone, even when there are tens of thousands of people around us to interact with. On the upside, all of those people want friendship just as much as you do.
Friendship can take on many forms. It can simply be workers or fellow students you see on a daily basis, an online pen pal from across the planet, your sweetheart, or a childhood connection.
Since people change, so does friendship. Someone you dislike may become a lover one day, and many friends will become strangers. This makes it very important to keep in touch with all levels of friendship rather than only those you like the most, and to keep meeting new people as well, because you never know what the future holds. Making friends is an art that anyone can become good at, but it takes practice and time.
Friendship: For Awkward, Cynical, and Strange People is a short mini zine guide to making friendships and what to be careful of in the process. At our Etsy shop you can read the 14 essential tips for free in the images or pick up a physical copy for $3 USD. If you're feeling lonely or want some suggestions on how to become a closer and better friend, check it out!
Hi! My name is Sage Liskey, the founder of the Rad Cat Press. I grew up seeing a lot of the disturbing, toxic, and unhealthy sides of American culture, and decided I wanted to do something to change it. Since 2010 I have been writing books and zines (booklets) focused around uplifting lives and reimagining society, with a primary focus in mental health and empowerment. I believe a better world is possible, so I hope you feel inspired and a little more fulfilled from what you find here. Read on about my mission.
