maintaining healthy relationships with friends and family

Relationships play a cardinal role in our lives, they are absolutely essential and we can not live without them. There comes a time in our life, where we get sick of all the relations and we prefer isolation.

However, it is not permanent in the long run we need relations and maintaining these relations is the toughest thing.


In the fuss of life, we often forget the importance of our cordial relation with friends and family and this leads us to misery. As per a sage, ” Relations are the most significant part of the life.”

Hence, the negligence against our relationships causes immense problems in our life.

Your family would probably know the things which no one ever will; your family can support you at the adverse time, where no other person could dare to walk with you.

Similarly, the family knows what you want, or what problem is haunting you; they definitely have the cure for all your ills.

In the same fashion, friends are a major part of our life. The memories and chemistry we have with our school friends would never be the same with our college friends.

Friends are the pillars that support us when we fall and help us gain our momentum in life. Check out these ways to determine whether your friends like you or not.

1. Stay Connected:

Try to communicate more often with your friends and family. Although technology has rapidly progressed, yet we restrain from communicating with our loved ones.

We should use this technology to rejuvenate our broken relationships. Call, Email, Text to your friends and family. This will make them realize that you adore them. However, a call or text is no substitute for meeting a person to your family.

2. Spend some quality time:

We often get so busy that we do not find time to catch up with people who matter to us. Arrange your meeting on weekends or at the end of the month and get prosperity in your relationships.

3. Remember significant dates (Birthdays):

Although people say that they are not fused about others remembering their birthdays but in reality, people admire those who remember their birthday.

This makes people feel important and loved when you wish them on certain days mothers day, friendship day, Valentine’s day and birthdays.

If you are unable to remember dates, you can use the help of Facebook which makes you remember birth-dates of your loved ones or any other app on mobile with alarm.

4. Be Kind:

We are inclined to take out our frustration and anger on those who are closest to us. If your parents reprimand you on something bad, you may yell at them.

Similarly, you can also exchange caustic remarks with your closest friends if you are not well. All this leads to further destruction of our relationships.

There is nothing better than kindness. if we become reticent when our parent or elders are angry at us, it would fetch us more adoration and respect in the eyes of our family.

Similarly, sometimes our friends need a shoulder to rely on our kind words in return can spur the intensity of our friendship. Find opportunities to show you kindness to your loved ones.

6. Make a way for them in your life:

love your siblings

Instead of only talking to your parents. brother or sisters about your school education or work, let them know about your hidden side you ambition the stuff you go throw on daily life.

Tell them you like a guy or girl, ask them to help you in any adversity, share with them your true feelings. While talking to friends, tell them about your family and your ideas and share your old memories.

7. Do not argue over tiny issues:

We often argue with our friends and family over trifle matters without knowing the consequences. Such small arguments deter our connectivity and ignite the flame which can wreak havoc on the continuation of our healthy relationship.

Therefore, try to ignore small bitter exchanges to prosper your relationship.

8. Forget old harsh memories:

Forget harsh memories

If you have any grudge and if any other person has any grudge on you, try to resolve it. Remember you are starting a new life, listen to the who is angry at you and try to pacify them.

Forgive and forget what others have done to you and begin a new era of your relationship.

Calling an angry friend of your or a family member on a dinner or sending them a gift would be a good initiative to strengthen your relationship.

9. Give chances do not let them go

Give chance and don't let your loved one go

If someone could not attend your call or did not accept your relation, try again. They might be going through something worse than you can imagine or they may be busy at the time of your call.

Try again to call them and understand their point of view. Likewise, if your parents’ are nagging you about any safety precautions in your life do not get irritated, let them nag and understand them.

We live in a society a world where we all are interconnected. In this interconnectedness, our close relations of friends and family matters a lot in the long run. So give your self a chance to improve healthy relationships with friends and family.
