Tell them how great they are and how much you appreciate them.
2. Be genuine and
real in your relationships. Don’t pretend and wear a mask but share your true,
3. Note, however,
that being genuine doesn’t mean always dumping your garbage on those around
you. Be respectful of their needs and feelings too – and recognize that we
influence and affect others’ moods. That is, we can choose to either brighten
or pollute the atmosphere.
4. Be a great
listener. We feel loved and valued when others really listen to us (and
demonstrate they’re listening through their nonverbal cues).
5. Don’t try to
fix, change and make them into different people. Instead, provide them with the
freedom to simply be themselves.
6. We don’t have to agree with, or
respect, each others’ choices in order to have a good relationship with them.
We can still be kind, and just agree to disagree.
