Bouncing your ideas off others can begin as a terrifying task when you aren’t completely sure about yourself. As you unfold that surety, though, you learn ways to adjust your words so they fall more gently on the ears of others. Or maybe you don’t, because you rather enjoy their shocked reactions? Either way, to maintain a harmonious relationship with others is desirable because these relationships will support you as you unfold your way toward perfect understanding across the years of your life.

These tips will support you toward harmonious relationships:

Acceptance. You are uniquely you, just as they are uniquely them. Accept people as they are and when it comes to change, only change you. It’s futile to try to change others. Only they can accomplish change within themselves.

Choose only positive people. Associate with people who are positive, fun, and forward thinking. Choose those who will support you as you work your way upward. Negative people will only hold you down. If you don’t feel good around them, walk away and go be you.

Be generous when forgiving. People will do and say things that hurt you. Don’t hug these things to your heart forever. Forgive them and move into your own next best experience. Release them, your resentment and hurt. Look for the lessons and then move forward. If you spend time hating them, you won’t have time to love the folks who are there now.

Only hold on to Real friends. There are people who aren’t really interested in what is good for you. Let go of that bunch. They didn’t bring much into your life anyway, and they just aren’t worth your time in mourning over their being gone. They came, they left their gift, and they left. Did you learn the lesson from the gift?

Don’t be a harsh judge. One glance at a person doesn’t tell you his full story, so don’t think you know someone after one look. Be tolerant. Listen to his story. Appreciate there may be something you can learn from him. If the relationship doesn’t work after you have looked, ease gently out of it. Trust yourself that you will know when to leave and how to do it gently.

Be loyal to your real friends. There are always friends who are ready to party and be the entertainers in your life. The guy who stays and helps you carry out the empties is a real friend and deserves your loyalty and support. Real friends deserve your support, just as they support you.

Be tolerant, kind and respectful. If you make a decision in your mind that you will treat everyone with tolerance, kindness and respect, you will feel fabulous regardless of how they treat you. Your decision will keep you in harmony, out of judgment, and will be noticed by others. People will want you to be in a relationship with them.

Look for their good, and praise it.  It takes discipline and a conscious choice to look for what is good in others, and when you give what you’ve seen a voice, you can easily take yourself out of selfishness into the realm of genuine caring and concern for others. And when you do this for yourself, you can do it more quietly. Who knows? Maybe they’ll pick up on it and start praising you!


Maintaining a harmonious relationship is desirable because these relationships will support you as you unfold your way toward perfect understanding across the years of your life. Tips about:

  • Only hold on to Real friends.
  • Don’t be a harsh judge.
  • Be loyal to your real friends.
  • Be tolerant, kind and respectful.
  • Look for their good, and praise it.
