Good Communication and Interpersonal Skills

Good Communication and Interpersonal Skills
(Reason Number 1.)

Friendship is a very important thing. While you may have many acquaintances, you will only have a few long-term friends, the one that are going to stick with you through thick and thin. In order to have these kinds of friends, there are things that you need to do to keep them.

One of the ways to keep long-term friends is by keeping communication open. This means that while talking about trivial day-to-day things are okay, you also need to be able to communicate more serious things. You need to be able to talk about “your joy and sorrows, your worries and fears, your hopes and dreams” and more. In addition, your friend should also feel comfortable about confiding in you too, in the same ways.

Now, you may think that this is something best saved for a relationship, maybe with a spouse or partner. If you think about it, having a long-term friendship is really just the same as a relationship. In some of the same ways, you could say that you love your long-term friends, and would do just about anything within reason to help them. Just like with a good relationship, if you want to keep and hang onto it you have to be able to be open with them.

There are really three things to having long lasting friendships, communication, trust, and honesty. Without these three things, it seems that they always fail. Developing and having communication skills is at the top of the triangle, because you can't expect the rest if you can't talk to someone. You also have to listen to them when they are serious as well.
