1. Appreciate all things.
Say “Thank you” when your friend did something for you regardless of whether it’s a big thing or a small one. You can also write them a short note on a post-it or send a quick email of your appreciation. It would definitely make their day.
2. Be yourself.
Just be real and be who you are. You wouldn’t want someone who’s not authentic to the people around them right? Be open minded and strive to always improve yourself to be better each day.
3. Communicate honestly.
Your friend would appreciate brutal honesty than a lie. Ensure that you communicate the truth in a way that would not offend or hurt their feelings. Timing is important, too.
4. Date your friend.
Once in a while, ask your friend out. Go on a date with movies and food if the budget permits. Spending time together once in a while would strengthen your bond.
5. Encourage them.
Be sensitive of their situation. When they’re feeling down, cheer them up. Offer words that would lift their spirits up and boost their morale.
Your friend is human too, like you are and would sure make mistakes and hurt your feelings at one point. When this happens, put yourself in your friend’s shoes and consider where they are coming from. Forgive them and give your friendship a chance
7. Give freely.
Whether it’s your time and/or resources, always find a way to extend a hand without expecting anything in return.
Physical touch is comforting. If you feel like your friend needs a hug, hug them! There are times that words fail and your embrace would say it all.
9. Introduce them to your other circle of friends and family.
This would make them feel how proud you are that you have them in your life. It’s also an opportunity for them to meet new people and make new friends.
10. Join volunteer activities.
It’s awesome to do selfless things for other people, animals and nature while enjoying each other’s company at the same time.
