Build positive relationships


  1. Make a list of people with whom you interact regularly.
    They can be your family, close friends, co-workers, bosses, teachers, or neighbours.

  2. Classify those people into Primary, Secondary and Peripheral relationships.
    Primary relationships are with those you are closest to, while peripheral relationships are with those you are least close to. Secondary relationships refer to those that fall in between these two categories.

  3. Categorize each relationship as ‘Positive’ or ‘Negative’.
    Think about each person - does he or she bring positivity or negativity into your life?

  4. Prioritize your Primary Positive relationships.
    Your Secondary and Peripheral relationships should only receive your time and attention once your commitment to your Primary relationships is fulfilled.

  5. Manage your Negative relationships appropriately.
    Try to be nice to even the most negative of people - when the best version of you shows up to the party, you’ll be able to bring the best out of other people. However, if a relationship makes you feel suffocated, it’s best to cut them out of your life.
