The best way to do this is to find a therapist to help you navigate these challenging relationships. You’ll also want to take the time to learn about your unique psyche so that you can build a better life.
7. Who Do You Admire?
Regardless of whether they are living or dead, it is important to admire those who have set the standard for how you want to live. This could be a person in your family, a professor or someone from your community. Write down the qualities they exhibited that you admire most. Discuss how you can further develop those qualities in your own life.
8. Who’s Your Friend?
The best way to find out who’s your friend is to spend a little time with them. A true friend will be loyal, dependable and show you that they care about your well-being. This also means that they’ll go out of their way to celebrate your achievements and milestones. The best ones will even remember your name if you have to call them up.
