Maintaining meaningful relationships can be tough. People come in and out of our lives all the time. When we change, our relationships do as well. Here are a few ways you can successfully foster meaningful relationships.
Treat Others They Way They Want to be Treated
It’s so important to remember; we are all different.
What works for you may not necessarily work for someone else. It may even make them feel worse.
You’re not a mindreader. The only way you can know for sure what others need is by asking them directly.
Take a Pause
Have you ever said or done something out of your character in the heat of the moment?
It’s completely normal to argue or disagree with friends and family from time to time.
You have to learn to take a step back and deal with negative emotions in a healthy way.
Don’t be afraid to hit the pause button for a few minutes. During that time you can reflect on your feelings in order to calmly communicate them.
Teach People How to Treat You
You can’t read other peoples minds right?
So how are they supposed to read yours?
Don’t be afraid to open up and show people the real you. The sooner your friends and family know what you need, the sooner they can help.
