Beyond Facebook: Develop a Support System

Social – Activity: Develop a Support System

People are social beings, and connection with others is an important part of our lives. The #4 Lessons for Living from Psychology Today, is SOCIAL NETWORKS MATTER. While Facebook is a helpful way to maintain connections with lots of people, sometimes we need deeper connections that require more care to develop.

This week, plan to develop supportive relationships. Use the Free Printable Develop Support Relationships (pdf)  to list your current connections. Next decide whether you wish to meet more people to bring into your circle. We all have different needs for the number and depth of friendships we want, and the time we have available can put limits on how many relationships can be maintained.

To make more friends:

Friendships are like flowers in the garden of life, which require care to flourish.

Think about how you can develop your current connections with attention and appreciation. The amount of time spent and level of connection will depend on the closeness of the relationship. Understand about boundaries and how to set them. Relationships, like conversation, consist of a well balanced give and take.
