Whom Should You Admire?
Asked on Quora. I get along well with my male friends. But I can't find a boy I really admire. I'm so confused. I don't have many male friends. What can ...I do to change this situation to find excellent boys?

There is a perfectly good reason you cannot find a "boy" whom you really admire. Boys are not to be admired or looked up to or put on a pedestal. The characteristics and qualities in a person can be admired and revered for their own sake.
Take notice of which of these you want to develop in yourself and as you become that person you want to be, you will find others with similar strengths are attracted to you. The friendships we keep are indeed an extension of the relationship we have with our self foremost.
Be proud of the qualities you possess today and continue to grow the skills and traits that will help you become your best self tomorrow. In the future, it will be good men (not boys) that share your enthusiasm for personal growth, leadership and are worth your company and mutual admiration.
