Here’s how to find out what your loved ones want from you and what you can do to help.
1) Be mindful.
The first thing you need to remember is that everyone has a different need.
Some family members may want to see you at work, but others might want to spend more time with you at home.
When it comes to what you want, try to figure out what works for you and be more flexible about what you say.
2) Be more mindful.
There’s no right or wrong time for sharing, but try to be thoughtful about what your friends want.
Do you want to talk about your birthday?
Your son’s birthday?
A birthday celebration with your partner?
You can even consider how you can make your time with your loved one easier if they’re busy with work.
3) Be a better listener.
Ask yourself these questions when it comes time to share: Do I want to share this information?
How do I feel about sharing this information with others?
What do my friends think about sharing?
Do I feel like I can trust this information to be true?
What are the consequences of not sharing this with others or not sharing it with friends?
4) Be patient.
Sometimes sharing can feel like a lot.
And sometimes it can feel really good.
Don’t take it personally if you have a hard time sharing.
Just remember that the people who have the most influence on you and your friends will always be there to share.
5) Remember to listen.
Don, don’t worry.
Everyone is different.
If you need help or you need a refresher, ask your family for advice or reach out to your local support network.
