Develop and maintain friendships

  • Look for friends with common interests. 
  • Schedule a "first date. There is nothing wrong with inviting someone for coffee or dinner because you think you have something in common with them.
  • Make a commitment. Once you begin a friendship, you must be purposeful in developing it.
  • Have fun. These fun activities become the moments that offer the perfect balance to the challenges in life.

Essential for our survival

Friendships need to be carefully acquired to avoid negative influences. Friendships need a continuous effort that can be difficult to manage. They will go through ups and downs and will be subject to time pressure and geographical constraints.

However, our ability to form friendships is critical and a fundamental part of who we are.

Decluttering Your Friends

Some friendships are past their time, and the red flag to note is when a person isn’t replenished or energized in any way after spending time with a friend.

Another sign is when a life event or milestone (like a change in job location or marriage) drifts apart an old friendship. If you lose a favourite person, an alternative is to become your own favourite person.

Be a regular

The best way to have friends is to interact with the same person regularly.

Look for activities where the same core people show up. Keep showing up yourself.
