4 Ways Friends To Be a Better Friend
It's so easy to take for granted the definition of friendship and what it really means in our lives. Let's face it, it comes down to a feeling. Friendships serve the purpose of making us feel loved, giving us a sense of belonging, freedom to be ourselves and just overall fun. They also play an incredibly important role of holding us in tough times. Being a great friend calls for a sense of awareness of the actions that generate that cuddly, slipper-like feeling.
Here are our 4 favorite ways to show emotional support (taken from the health line article) :
- Listening — really listening — to your problems, dreams, hopes and something just whining
- Validating your feelings: feelings are real and sometimes all we need is for someone we love to acknowledge our true feelings without judgment.
- Doing nice things for you just because
- Helping distract you when you feel sad or upset: because they truly know how to ease up those hard moments for you
