There is nothing worse than sensing that you might be drifting away from your friends or doubting the true intentions of your relationships, without any clue on ways to improve your friendships.

We've all been through it and it sucks!

You feel lonely and depressed, and that’s not the way friendships should be!

In order to prevent unnecessary depression and stress, I decided to share 7 ways to improve your friendships that should then last you a lifetime!

1. Prioritize Friendships

Often times the reason why some friendships crumble is because not enough effort is put into them.2

Friendships are not automatic;

they should be nurtured and maintained from both sides.

That’s why it’s important to prioritize your friendships and put more focus in the ones that mean the most to you.

Sometimes it’s hard to balance you time between school or work, family, friendships and personal time, that’s why whenever there is time, it should be put in the most treasured friendships.

Prioritizing may not be one of the most obvious ways to improve your friendships but it sure is the most important one!

2. Make Time for Friends

Like I have said before, sometimes friendships require work but it’s not a bad thing.

Every so often it’s hard to juggle everything in your life but you should always promise yourself some time with people.

Although everyday contact is not necessary, it’s important to stay in touch and make sure that things haven’t changed.

Friendships are well worth the investment of time and should always be towards the top of your to-do list!

3. Be the Best Friend You Would like to Have

It’s important to be trustworthy, supportive and compassionate toward your friends.

Avoid doing the things you wouldn’t want to be done to you.

For example if you are about to spill a secret or gossip about your friend, ask yourself: Do I want it to be done to me?

The answer is most likely no, so stay true to your friends, reach out to them and stay reasonable!
