Do you remember my face?

Three ways to be the best friend you could ever be.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

When you’re having a nice time with someone, and time passes so freely, you remember most, how that person makes you feel when you’re around them. 

It’s the feelings that you get that stays in your memory bank and make a lasting imprint. 

Imprints can also change, just as the face can too. 

You care not that the person you are with is ageing, just that this person is in your life and what pleasure they bring, you care about how this person makes you feel, each and every time that you meet. 

And it never stops. 

Every time that you meet, they will have a positive, or a negative effect on you, then this is stored with all of your other meet-ups, to make evaluations on them. 

Each meet-up will steer you closer or further away from one another, based on the feelings that that person brings to you. 

This is also the same with marriages, families and every kind of relationship that you have. 

Some people naturally focus on how to make you feel better, so they will say anyd do all of the right things, usually picking up on your mood and delivering words that you would like to hear. This kind of person is called an empath. And if you are an empath, you truly do have a gift. 

Next time you meet someone, think about switching your needs around. Instead of wanting to feel good from your meet-up, try to purposely focus on making them feel good about themselves.  

Turn take
Catch up with their life, not yours.     

They will really value you for this, and that meet-up will stay in their memory bank as one of the best. 

Let them feel your love, not just see your face. 🌸
