5 Simple Ways To Foster Meaningful Relationships
In this life we are not meant to be alone. Some people are alone by choice but most of us seek companionship. Companionship comes in many different forms and it is up to the individual as to what that will look like. This is why having meaningful relationships is so important. A few days ago I posted a poll on my Instagram Stories asking about ways to lose 20 pounds in 2 months. To my surprise, a lot of people sent me DM’s encouraging me and giving me some tips and tricks.
One of the friends that reached out to me and it reminded me that I haven’t talked to her in a while. We get busy, we all have things to do. Something inside of me wanted me to ask her if she would want t meet for coffee or lunch. Now, it has been at least 6 months since the last time we sat and had a chat.
I was so excited when she said that she would be available and both of our schedules were open. Listen, we make time for the things that we really want to do. So I want to share a few ways that you can foster meaningful relationships even if it has been a while since you last spoke.
For my friend and I, as I mentioned, it had been at least six months since we had an in-depth conversation. Looking back at it now she was very impactful in helping me establish my brand and help me with content ideas. Honestly, I guess you can say that I wasn’t truly ready to put in in the work. Now, I realized I should have stuck to the plan.
You know what they say you live and you learn.
The great thing about my friend is that she has a heart of gold and she is full of passion! She truly loves what she does and she will support you in whatever it is that you do. It is hard to find people like that. When you do it is so important that you continue to grow and foster those meaningful relationships.
