There’s a saying, “a real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out” . Yes, a good friend is someone who’s there to provide support when times are tough and someone you can rely on. But often, you are confused about how to soothe and comfort your friend. Here are something you should know when your friend need consolation

1. Listen first

Listen to what he told, don’t cut off before he finished his talk or ask your opinion. Focus your eyes on him and be an active listener, when your friends stop for a while and look at your reaction, repeat what he just said, but in your own words, to show that you’re really listening.

2. Focus on positive things

Give compliments to the positive things from him. Express what you admire about your friend and give a thought to him that he has something to be grateful. For example: When he had just broken up from his girlfriend, you can comfort him by saying, “you still have family and friends who care about you” or “you are handsome / smart anyway, surely there will be another girl who can appreciate you ”

3. Let him vent his emotions

If he cries or express the problem with great emotion. Let him. He just wants to let go all the burden of his mind, don’t press him to settle quickly. After he is satisfied and relieved, then it’s your turn to say something.

4. Hug him

A hug, generally, can channel positive energy from someone to the other. A hug can make a connection between you and your friend. He will be able to feel your love, care, and sympathy towards him. Don’t do this if your friend feels uncomfortable with hugging (Depending on our respective cultures, sometimes if your friend is the opposite sex, he will feel awkward )

5. Say that you always support him

Tell him that whatever mistakes he did, or something that he experienced, he is still your friend. You’ll always be there for him, listen, and help him.

6. Offer your assistance

If you feel you can do something practical for him, offer him. For example, when he just got fired from his job, and you’re running a business, you can ask him to work at your place.

7. Offer to do activities that he likes

After your friend feel relieved, you can ask him to play some games, watch a movie together, karaoke, take a walk or whatever he likes. By doing something he likes, he will be kept away from negative thoughts and create a new spirit in him.

NOTE:

1. Don’t worry if you can’t solve his problem. Sometimes, he is happy enough if you want to listen. Don’t give any advice that you, yourself, are not sure because it’s just misleading him. If he agrees, you can bring him to others who you think can help him.

2. Don’t tell his problem to someone else. It will only make your friend doesn’t trust you anymore.

3. If you feel that he is in trouble, and when you ask “Do you have any problem?” , he doesn’t want to tell you, don’t press him with such question because it will actually make him feel upset. If he really needs someone else, eventually he’ll tell you.

4. Avoid talking about your problem. Even if your problem is similar to his. You have to say positive things.

5. When he is telling you his problem, don’t listen with the reluctant and lazy body language but listen to him with an enthusiastic body language.

The secret when meeting people and developing friendships with them is to meet new people with whom you have interests in common. You have to allow time for a friendship to grow as you gradually learn more about people and work out whether your interests are compatible. That is what makes museums great places to meet new people as you will be coming into contact with people who are interested in the subject of the museum, just like you are! Also, being in a museum environment with plenty to see and do helps you relax and stave off boredom or the anxiety to rush a friendship as you get to know people. Thankfully, London is home to over two thousand museums. Many are free to enter and most of them are also an opportunity for you to get out and meet new people when you have to take care of the kids. So let’s have a look at some of the best London museums where you can meet new people who are your potential life-long friends. The British Museum This eighteenth century museum is probably one of the most famous in England, if not the world. It is also proud of the fact that it has offered free entry ever since it opened in 1753. Some of the museum’s highlights include The Rosetta Stone, the Elgin Marbles, Egyptian mummies and Easter Island statues. That has not even scratched the surface of the things you can see in this museum. It would take you a year to see everything, so that would give you plenty of opportunity to return and meet new people also interested in history and archaeology. The Museum of London Opened in 2010, this museum of seven permanent exhibitions offers a view of London from prehistoric times to the end of the nineteenth century. If your family history is in and around London you would find this a fascinating place to visit for yourself, regardless of whether you meet new people with who you want to form friendships. However, you should give it a go. Just start talking to the people next to you in the museum. You don’t have to be knowledgeable. In this situation, asking a question might be just as helpful as imparting some information when you meet new people.

Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A)

The Victoria and Albert Museum offers a vast array of artefacts, some of which date back over three thousand years. Textiles, ceramics, furniture, jewellery, paintings and sculpture are just some of the things you’ll see here. It is also a good place to visit if you are interested in modern fashion, which is also displayed here and can be a great talking point from which to meet new people and strike up a conversation with them. We all remember fashion trends from throughout our lives and have opinions in them. You would definitely have something to talk about when you meet new people at the V&A.

Foundling Museum

Something a little heavier but nevertheless fascinating is the Foundling Museum. It tells the story of the Foundling Hospital, the original home for London’s abandoned children. It offers great insight into three important people from British history: the hospital’s founder, Thomas Coram, William Hogarth the artist, and the composer, George Frideric Handel.

Visiting any of these London museums, you have a wonderful opportunity to meet new people. You can then suggest a sit down for a cup of tea or coffee and maybe even a slice of cake. Most of the museums have coffee shops and even if they don’t, you can find comfortable and affordable coffee shops all over London; these coffee shops are themselves great place to meet new people!

I know it’s possible to create attraction. You can learn how to do things that will make another person feel attracted to you. There are lots of people teaching how to do that these days. But is this a wise idea?

In your gut don’t you sense there’s something not quite right about using tactics and techniques to cause someone to be attracted to you, someone who wouldn’t otherwise find you attractive?

I think the answer depends on the circumstances. Are you trying to hide the real you and to project a false image that people are attracted to? Or are you working to eliminate the blocks that prevent your real attractiveness from coming through?

I see wisdom in learning how to express ourselves more naturally and authentically. This can lead to relationships that are naturally good for us, that make us happy, and that help us grow. The attraction is genuine.

But projecting a false image is the wrong way to go. This leads to relationships rooted in falsehood, denial, and deception. The people we attract won’t be good matches for us, and we won’t enjoy the optimal growth that comes from finding a true mate. Attraction and Truth, Love, and Power

Even though your attraction circuitry may seem to operate on a subconscious, biological level, it isn’t there to frustrate you or to derail you. It actually serves a greater purpose by helping you become more aligned with truth, love, and power.

First, attraction helps to align you with truth. Attraction teaches you to let go of falsehood and denial and to practice acceptance. Can you talk about your attractions openly, even if it means others might reject your preferences? Are you ashamed of those you find attractive? Or can you accept this part of yourself completely and without judgment?

Second, attraction helps you align with love. By exploring your attractions and attractiveness, you’ll learn to connect with what naturally makes you happy. This happiness will inspire all other areas of your life. You also have the opportunity to enjoy one or more loving relationships. And you will have the joyful experience of connecting with a partner who finds you naturally attractive just the way you are.

Third, attraction helps you align with power. A relationship rooted in attraction can serve as a pillar of tremendous strength and growth. You’ll learn to stand up for your preferences and to stop apologizing for wanting what you want.

When you rail against what naturally attracts you and try to enter a relationship for reasons other than attraction, you throw yourself out of alignment with truth (by practicing non-acceptance), with love (by disconnecting from your feelings), and with power (by settling for a weaker bond).

Attraction isn’t the only important factor when it comes to relationships. By all means, consider the logical aspects too. Just take note that a relationship rooted in mutual attraction lays a very strong foundation.

Do your best to be true to your feelings instead of trying to reason your way into something that doesn’t feel right to you. Listen to your body more than your social conditioning. If you find yourself in a relationship with someone that your body doesn’t respond to as your natural mate, admit that you made a mistake, and take steps to move on. If you deny your true desires, you’ll be robbing yourself as well as your partner of tremendous opportunities for love, growth, happiness, and yumminess.

There is no one person in the world you must find to become your perfect mate. The world is filled with suitable partners for you. But it will be hard to find and attract them if you lead with your logical mind. Let your body and your feelings guide you instead. You can always engage your logical mind after the fact to figure out how you got so damned lucky.
