Tips on Sustaining Friendship
In between all the relations in life, the sweetest relation is that of friendship. Things that we are afraid to share with our parents or siblings can be comfortably shared with a friend. On the other hand, an effort has to be made in sustaining the bond of friendship.
In reality, friendship is based on trust. If you do not trust your friend, it means something is missing in your friendship and you are not being true to your friend or friends. If you want to preserve your friendship then make a sincere effort in trusting your friend. If your friend has done some good work then praise him or her and also motivate them to do better. True friends always get happy with the success of their buddies.
Never pinpoint the mistakes of your friend in front of others. Generally, when you study together or work in office mistakes are bound to take place but instead of interrupting in front of others which might humiliate your friend, try to advice them separately. There must always be a sense of belonging while helping out a friend. True friendship is the one where two friends understand each other completely. If one thing is not liked by a particular friend, it must be told clearly so as to avoid any misunderstanding in the future.
If your friend is in any type of trouble then make sure you render every possible help. Generally, we wait for our friend to ask for help but it is also possible that your friend does not want to trouble you. So, always be prepared. Sometimes, fight also takes place between friends if you don’t have uniform thinking over a particular matter. Instead of arguing with each other, try to accommodate each other viewpoint. We should not force our views on other people.
No matter how deep is your bonding with a friend, never interfere in personal life of your friend for the reason that it can also cause rupture in your friendship. Give advice only when asked. It has often been observed that people tend to forget their friends after completing their school or college. After sometime they feel the need of their friends which cannot be contacted for some reason or the other. Make an effort to stay in touch with your friend by one way or the other.
