Whether it be humans, animals or birds we all need a partner, someone to talk to, share our lives with or simply go out to enjoy. Human beings have a network of such relations including work mates, college friends, girlfriends, boyfriends and partners. These various groups of people are with us in various stages of our lives and help us.
As a person climbs up in life the most pressing concern they face is not having enough time for everything. Not enough time to spend with family or friends, or to go out on a date or take a trip. We get so consumed in succeeding that we neglect our social life. How do we change this?
Greet people that you see every day. People at work, your usual bookstore owner, you can maybe offer them a smile too. Organizing time, setting time aside for yourself or organizing your day so that you could go out to form a social life or maintain your existent one would be a great start. The next step would be to keep in touch. Does not necessarily mean that you talk to them every day, you could send them a gift on their birthday or maybe flowers on special occasions. Sometimes you can mingle a little bit of personal work and social life. Taking a friend along while you do your shopping is one example. Joining a club or taking part in activities is also a great way to form relationships and team building in SG. Start conversations, don’t get too personal. Talking about something general would help. This is also a way to improve our selves both professionally and personally.
Many work organizations have team building activities to help their employees form a relationship with others so that they may work efficiently. Social relationships can determine the success of a person.
In order to enhance social relations, you cannot hide behind your door at home. An effort must be made. Sharing is caring. You can share your happiness and sadness in a relationship and this actually strengthens the bond.
Likewise, you should partake in your friends’ happiness and sadness as well. It should be a give and take relationship. Even disagreements should not be held for a long period of time.
Even at work life you can enhance your relations. Don’t have opponents but rather turn them into proponents. Competition is good and enmity is bad, this situation can be avoided by learning to accept victory and defeat alike. And thus you enhance every type of a social relation.
