Here’s how you can connect with your friend better:

Reach out to them

Make an effort to start a conversation or some form of discussion. Don’t let your friend be the only one talking.

Speak up about your needs

If you need or want something, take time to ponder over an issue before discussing with your friend, be sure to communicate about them clearly. Don’t just disappear!

Be open to challenge

Your friend may challenge your thinking’s logic. Don’t take it personally, it’s your friend’s way of finding better solutions.

Share your thoughts and reactions

Try to open up about what’s going on in your life to your friend and keep him/her updated on your thoughts and reactions.

Participate in your friend’s events

Try to participate in as many social events and activities with your friend. Encourage your friend to go ahead even if you do not want to join them.
