Friendship and Caring for Your Friends
Friendships are some of the most powerful bonds we have. Friends are vital to our mental well-being because they can improve our confidence and self-worth. Sometimes when we’re struggling our friends are the first to notice something is off because they know us so well. Strong friendships can see us through hard times, like illness, breakups, and family drama.
How to Take Action to Help Your Friends
There will be times when we notice a friend struggling and want to support them in what they’re going through. But it’s not always easy to start that conversation or know what kind of support to offer, especially if the friend doesn’t want help. It’s important to understand what you can offer a friend and how to be a supportive friend even if they are not ready to accept help yet.
