As the saying goes, when you’re happy, the whole world smiles with you. This means when we’re outwardly happy, positive, and upbeat, we may help to improve the moods and relationships of those around us.

By listening, we make the other person feel important. Are we always talking about our own life, or do we also listen to others? Listening is a great way to make friends happy. We may also help them feel contentment, relief and gratitude. All of these feelings may help strengthen your friendships.

Give and you shall receive. Apply this idea in your life to friends and family. Let these people know how much you value and appreciate their friendship.

Listening with an attentive ear, providing emotional support, staying positive for each other, and appreciating honest conversations may result in happy long-lasting friendships.
