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

Express your feelings

Tell your friend how much you care and how much of a positive difference their presence has made in your life.

Respect your friend’s routines

Unless necessary, try not to change plans suddenly, or disregard your friend’s schedule and need for predictability.

Keep your promises

Follow through on what you have started, and keep every promise or commitment that you have made to your friend.

Be supportive

Make an effort to be supportive, especially at times when your friend is especially busy or stressed. Pitching in to help without being asked is best.

Appreciate your friend often

Be grateful and appreciative of your friend for the many things that he/she has done to bless you in different ways!
