Yes, we know it doesn’t end there, keeping long-term friendships can also be a struggle and we’re not going to see you lose all the friends you have.
Here a few pointers on how to grow with your friend for life.
Always make sure you keep in touch with your friends. Know what they are about and let them know yours too. Speak up to them when there are problems, you don’t have to hold a grudge for a long time. It’s always better to pour it all out!!!
Be appreciative of whatever your friends do for you, no matter how little. This goes a long way to sustain the friendship. Adopt the habit of saying thank you all the time. This will surely put a smile on one’s face.
Make Time For Each Other
Despite busy lecture schedules and other stuff, make sure you and your friends have time for each other. Go to the beach or do something fun. Birthdays!! We all know how these are important. Don’t forget them!!
Accept Your Friends For Who They Are
You don’t need to change your friends to suit your standard. If you really want to be friends with them then you accept them for who they are. Change is inevitable but let them change in their own time, not by force.
Your friends should be able to fall to you for help and vice versa, lend a helping hand. They should be able to trust you with certain pieces of information. Even with their eyes closed, they must know you’ll be there for them no matter what.
Even though friendships may fade, these pointers can help maintain the friendship for a long time. Trust us!!!
