Talk to any successful person and they’ll tell you that you need to improve friendships. There are many instances where people have been down on their luck, however, there was this one person that helped them back up. That person didn’t appear out of thin air. In fact, what brought that person to help them is due to their ability to improve friendships.

Not only do friendships help us move in life, it’s our own way of life too. At our core, we are social creatures and the lack of talking to people has always been a sign of low self esteem and even depression.

Through the power of friendship, we can improve ourselves in various ways. There are several articles stating that friendship can:

All of these perks depend entirely on the friends – and environment – that you have in your life. But another person aspect is growing those relationships as well.

Despite knowing that though, not a lot of us are willing to go out of our way to improve friendships. This is especially prominent as we grow older and narrow down our list of friends.

Below are some self-confidence tips that you can apply in your own life to improve friendships, but also broaden your scope so that you may find quality friends too.

There are many ways to improve friendships. Keep these tips in mind to grow yours!

4 Tips To Find And Improve Friendships

Show A Genuine Interest In Their Life

People can tell a difference between someone not interested and who is. Generally speaking, these tells can boil down to asking questions as well as body language. Based on our posture, we can read a lot about other people. People may be more distant if they lean back and are further away most of the time. On the other hand, people who lean in are people who show interest.

When you show a genuine interest in someone’s life it shows that you care about them and thus they will divulge more. It’s in our nature for us to be talking about ourselves and we intuitively know if someone isn’t at all interested in us.

An interest in someone else makes for an interesting person both ways.

Accept Yourself For Who You Are

While it’s corny advice, it still does improve friendships when you are being yourself. People often put up fronts and barriers and mask who they are. These can mean they’re deceptive, or perhaps they don’t want to disappoint people.

Instead of painting an image that you are amazing, relax and be who you are. Some friendships aren’t simply meant to be and that’s okay. It’s a natural part of life that there will be some people who don’t like you or drift away after a while. This only means that you must continue your search.

Be who you are and people will be attracted by your personality. There's no shame in being authentic.

Offer Something In Return

The last thing I want to be offering is making deals with people. At the end of the day, people use other people. It’s why people may deceive others or exploit someone’s good nature. For me, it makes sense to have a friendship where both people know what they want from each other.

This doesn’t mean money or power as friendships are formed for various reasons. One of my long lasting friendships is built on us holding each other accountable for our business and growth.

For you, it can be anything. Whether it is financial favours here and there or perhaps lending a shoulder or an ear to listen. There are various ways people can show support for someone else.

The reason why this improves friendships is again people use other people. This is especially prominent as adults and so it makes sense to have something like this.
