How to build a solid friendship
Friendship is important to everyone.
It doesn’t matter if you’re just a few years old or in your 90s; friendship can always come in handy.
You might think that it’s not as easy to find a good friend when you get older, but the truth is that they are all around us!
Here are some quick tips for friendship that can help you find the one-of-a-kind friend that will be there for you no matter what.
Tip #01: Don’t isolate yourself from others, because they could become a great friend! Keep an open mind and talk to people when you’re out in public or at school. You never know who you’ll meet!
Tip #02: Little things count, whether it be a friendly “hello” or just hanging out for a while at the end of the day with someone else that is having a bad time.
Tip #03: One good friend can make all the difference in your life–they’re not always the first person you think of, but they might be more important than you know.
Tip #04: The best friends are not always just like us–they can come in all shapes and sizes! They could have a different personality or background from ours, which is what makes them so great to talk to about whatever comes up.
Tip #05: When we’re feeling down, it helps to talk to someone who always has a smile on their face and makes us laugh.
Tip #06: Friends might disagree with one another at times, but that’s what keeps them interesting! They’ll usually have different opinions and ideas, which can really challenge you in ways that others may not be able to.
Tip #07: How many friends do you need, anyway? It’s not a matter of how big or small your group is. The best relationships are those where both sides see each other as equals and have an active role in relating to one another.
Tip #08: Friends can be people we’ve never actually met before! Those who we’ve met in chat rooms, social networks, and online games are just as important to us.
Tip #09: What does a best friend do? A best friend listens when you need them the most and doesn’t judge or criticize you for anything that’s ever happened between the two of you.”
Tip #10: People change as they grow up and mature. This is why it’s important to not only create memories with those who are close by but also to cherish the people who are just friends.
Tip #11: If you’re not sure if someone is a good friend, ask them! Ask questions that’ll help you determine how this person reacts in various situations to see what kind of friendship they’d be for your life. It’s never too late to find new friends or reconnect with old ones.
Tip #12: Find out what they’re passionate about and do your best to nurture that. If you can’t find something in common, ask the person how long it took them to get where they are now and if there’s anything you could learn from their experience.
Tip #13: Try not to judge people before getting to know them because sometimes we make the wrong judgments.
Tip #14: Spending time with friends is a great way to blow off steam and enjoy life more fully, yet it can also be really challenging at times because there’s an expectation of sharing what you’re going through or talking about things that might not necessarily feel comfortable. When those moments come up, know that it doesn’t matter if you don’t want to say something. The important thing is that you’re there for your friend.
Tip #15: We all get mad sometimes and need someone to listen, but be careful about what we share with friends who might not have our best interest at heart.
Tip #16: If it’s a close friend or family, it’s important to not keep things bottled up but, if someone is trying to get you into something that doesn’t feel right for your life and they’re being pushy about it, try setting a boundary such as “I’d like some time before we talk more about this.”
Tip #17: It can be hard when friends drift apart, and their lives take different paths, but it’s still important to stay in touch and keep the lines of communication open.
Tip #18: When we’re trying to be a good friend to someone who is struggling with something bigger than themselves, sometimes all we can do is show up for them as best as we can at that moment.
Tip #19: When we’re trying to be a good friend to someone who is struggling with something bigger than themselves, sometimes all we can do is show up for them as best as they can at that moment.
Tip #20: When friends are in need of support or help and know how you feel about the situation, it’s important not to back away from that responsibility.
