You are... The Supportive Best Friend!
Woohoo — according to your responses, you're the supportive friend! So what does that mean 👉 You're calm, consistent, and oh so passionate about lifting your loved ones up. When it comes to friendship, you usually put others before yourself. It's important to you that your people feel seen, heard, and understood. Whether that means sitting with them in silence or and listening to their problems and providing input, you're game. Here's the thing though, sometimes spending so much energy shining your light for others might leave you feeling a little drained. Remember, you can always ask your loved ones for help, too. Reciprocity is what friendship's all about!“Real friendship, like real poetry, is extremely rare — and precious as a pearl.” — Tahar Ben Jelloun3 Tips to Help You Build Friendships That Stand the Test of Time 👇1. Prioritize, Prioritize, PrioritizeBuilding and nurturing strong relationships takes time and energy, which means you might have to get a bit more selective about who you invite into your life. While having a phonebook's worth of acquaintances can be comforting, it may be more rewarding to focus in on a few close friendships and make a point of tending to them regularly. Consider who you learn from, who challenges you, and who lights you up!2. Show Them You CareWhen it comes to nurturing relationships, a little really can go a long way! You don't have to spend hours catching up with your friend to show them you care — small gestures like making a meal for them, sending them your new Spotify playlist, or turning up at their milestone events demonstrates that you're thinking about your friend even if your schedule is too busy to fit in much face time.3. Schedule Them InI don't have to tell you that life is fast-paced! Between school or work and family responsibilities, it's probably pretty difficult finding space in your schedule to laugh it up with your friends, but it's so worth it! Rather than losing those connections, you want to strengthen them. So instead of simply saying, "We should grab a coffee sometime," set a time and place... Then write it down so you don't forget.
