I often ponder about friendships in today’s world. Are they for real? Do good friends exist?? Today, people are very busy with gadgets than humans. I see everyone holding a smart phone/ tablet and making friendships with the screen rather than the human around. Often the conversations are shallow and affection is evidently less. Lets change that!

To get good friends, we need to be one!

Starting today, plan yourself to hear out to the person next to you  – they might be a coworker or colleague or family member – at work or study or at home wherever you are!. Spend at least half an hour of your time listening to them and speak only kind words. Listen to them with all your heart and empathize … You need not provide your opinion or advice…just be there and hear what they say. Many needs a listening ear, which is forgotten in today’s world… Listening is prime for a good friend. 🙂

  1. Simple and to the point. I like it. I hear you, this world is tied to smartphones… I wish we could all go back to the days when friendships actually meant doing things with each other and not just staring at our phones!

  2. Hello, I have often thought about this very topic. We live in a society centered around number one and often forget about the relationships we need to build to have fulfilling lives. What is life without friends? Thanks for a thought provoking article.

  3. Really beautiful post! I also believe in giving Someone your time, Attention. I know that these days we are really busy with social media and sometimes forget our close friends, our kids or people that we really love.
