Remember active listening goes a long way when maintaining a friendship. Don’t just wait for your turn to talk – hear what they’re saying and try to understand how they’re feeling. This also allows you to give better advice and support because you know what’s going on in their life.
Be selfless and show you care
A good friendship is built on trust and mutual respect. This means thinking about their needs before your own and always being honest with them. It’s the little things that matter in friendships. Something as small as sending a quick text message or liking their post on ASKWHO can make a big difference in how valued your friend feels.
