We all want to have true friends, but the quality of our friends depend on us. If you want to have true friends, you should be a true friend yourself. By being a true friend, people will love to be around you and many of them will eventually become your true friends.
In addition, being a true friend is a good way to solve relationship problems. It’s difficult to change other people, but you can always change yourself. You can then solve the otherwise unsolved problems in relationships.
Here I’d like to share 17 tips to become a true friend. It may take years to learn to apply them but they are essential to boost your relationships.
Here they are:
1. Befriend yourself
Friendship with oneself is all important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.
This is an essential first step if you are to be a true friend. If you don’t even accept yourself, how can you accept others? You may have made mistakes in the past that you can’t forget. But forgive yourself for them. You perhaps don’t have the traits you want in life. But accept yourself as you are.
2. Accept others
A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are.
After you befriend yourself, you will be in a good position to accept others. Other people may do you wrong or have some bad habits you don’t like. But you are not perfect yourself so there is no reason for you not to accept them.
3. Make time
At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent.
Sometimes we are too busy to provide time for relationships, even for important people in our life. That most likely happens because we put relationships too low in our priority list. If we regard relationships as high priority, time won’t be a problem. We will make time for relationships.
4. Be a good listenerFriends are those rare people who ask how we are and then wait to hear the answer.
In the UK, peoples attitudes towards profanity has radically changed over the last two decades. That’s not to say that its casual inclusion in common parlance is now de rigeur, but it has simply permeated the culture to such an extent, that it no longer has the potential to shock as much as it use to. Recently a member of the public had a conviction for swearing at a Police Officer overturned by a Judge on the grounds that “swearing at police is not a crime because they hear four letter words too frequently to be offended”. That ultimately is a separate issue, but I referenced it to demonstrate the ongoing changes in public sensibilities.
So, back to blogging. It is by its very nature a very personal and at times emotive activity. There may well be occasions when you wish to express yourself quite forcefully or feel such intense emotion, you wish to use profanity. As the master of your own destiny, you have to make that decision yourself, but it does inevitably come with consequences. Because some people really do take offence at it. In extreme cases it may lead to you losing readers. Even if you have written the most illuminating of posts, the inclusion of some colloquial Anglo-Saxon terms will upset some people and they will not be able to see beyond it. I am not saying if this is right or wrong. It’s a people issue and it needs to be considered and then offset against the old adage that you cannot please everyone.I am not especially bothered by strong language, having worked in environments
,Inc. was founded by Chad Hurley,Steve Chen and Jawed Karim in February 2005 in San Bruno, California. They all met while working at PayPal, Chen and Karim as and designer Chad. According to Hurley and Chen, the idea of YouTube came at the difficulties experienced in trying to taken during a party San Francisco. This story has been considered a very simplified version, and Chen has recognized that this idea can be promoted by the need to present a simple story to the market. Karim said that the party never happened, and that the idea of sharing Internet video was his. His colleagues have stated that the party did happen, and Karim's original idea was to create a where people could be classified based on their videos. Karim acknowledges having been influenced by a dating site called HotorNot.com ('" '), where users could upload pictures of themselves, which were
True Love Stories....Sohni Mahiwaal
I chose the story of Sohni and Mahiwal for this post because I find it so touching, so tragic, and so real. Even though Sohni and Mahiwal lived, loved and died, relatively recently there is no one consistent account of their story. However, there is an unmistakable common thread that runs through the different versions.
Sifting through different accounts and glossing over some, here is, briefly, what I could gather of this beautiful and enduring story:
Sometime during the late Mughal period, there lived in a town on the banks of the Chenab, or one of its branches, a potter (kumhar) namedTulla. (The town is identified either as present day Gujrat or one of the nearby towns.) Tulla was a master craftsman and his earthenware was bought and sold throughout Northern India and even exported to Central Asia. To the potter and his wife was born a daughter. She was such a beautiful child that they named her Sohni, meaning beautiful in Punjabi.
Sohni spent her childhood playing and observing things in her father’s workshop. She watched clay kneaded and molded on the wheel into different shaped pots and pitchers, dried in the sun, and then fired and baked. Sohni grew up not only into a beautiful, young woman but also an accomplished artist who made floral designs on the pots and pitchers that came off her father’s wheel.
