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

Express yourself explicitly

Don’t assume that your friend knows how you feel or what you think. Try to convey your thoughts and emotions through words or writings.

Compliment your friend’s ideas

Complimenting your friend on their innovative ideas and original take on things is a sure way to make your friend feel valued and appreciated.

Let your friend solve your problems

Your friend finds joy and fulfilment when he/she is able to practically solve problems of people he/she cares for.

Show interest in your friend’s projects

Find out more about what your friend have been burying his/her head into, so that you can be part of an important part of his/her life.

Speak words of affirmation

Tell your friend that you appreciate the way he/she brings new meaning or variety to your life!
