The gesture of friendship binds two friends in an invisible thread of commitment that they keep for a lifetime. But like any other relationship, friendship also needs nurturing and
taking care of. If you ignore your friends, then you may not find them there after a while.
So here are some simple steps to make friends, keep friends, and grow them into best friends. Follow these simple steps and see yourself surrounded by smiling faces and true friends who can do just about anything for you.
From a Stranger to a Friend
Friends don’t just come from anywhere. Friendship happens when you share a common experience, a common interest and an attraction just like any other relationship. Someone must come out first to develop a friendship. So open up to the person whom you like, enjoying talking to and then take relationships to a new height, to the level of close friendship.
Keep the channels of communication open. Make your friendship grow by talking your heart out. When friends talk, they reveal their ideas and feelings, and bridge a channel of understanding between them. So keeping talking as there is no better way to make your friendship grow.
Friends are Good Listeners
Just like talking is important to make your friendship grow, in the same way listening is also a very major part of friendship. Listen to your friend from your mind as well as from your heart and then see how quickly you make friends and make many best friends as well.
Pay Attention to Your Friend
Giving proper attention is one thing that is very much required to make any relationship grow. Give your physical attention, mental attention, and always remember to look into your friends eyes when talking. This helps forms a bond between the two friends.
Empathy is identifying with another’s feelings. It is seeing life through his/her eyes. Share the feelings that go in a relationship and be a part of each other’s life.
Praise your Friend
Words of affirmation always bring two people closer. Giving genuine compliments should be a habit that we should incorporate in all our relationships. So don’t overlook your friend’s small gestures and praise your best friend in every chance you get.
Friends are Equal
All relationships including friendship are balanced on the scale of equality. One person isn’t always dominant and the other person isn’t always submissive. So never let the scale tip towards one side. Make your friend feel equal with giving proper respect and time to each other.
No matter what’s our age, we always need a friend. Follow these simple steps and make your friends stay by your side forever.
