Being a good listener means understanding the risks and situations that people are facing every day of their lives. Fortunately, our society has evolved into becoming a community that’s more accepting of intellectual discourses on mental health, emotional support, etc. Decades ago, these are issues that have been buried under a long pile of taboos because they’re considered unimportant.

8 Types of Fake Friends You Need to Avoid at All Costs
Fake friends will turn you into a person you’re not, and you will find it hard to believe that you’ve changed because they have you wrapped around their fingers. Fake friends will like you only if you do what’s good for them. They like the expectation of you to become someone that can be of help to them; to them, you’re just a tool, an object they can use as they please.
Fake friends wouldn’t want to know more about you so they only pick one or two trivial, fun facts about you and persuade you that they already know everything there is to know. If you’re not vigilant enough, they can control your thoughts, your choices, and your other relationships in life. They can be very shady manipulators that will hit you in a place you’re not expecting, and it would be a rough life the longer you are attached to them.
How to Support Your Friends' Artistic and Entrepreneurial Dreams
Many people out there don’t feel the need to show support to their friends in their course of work because they don’t think their help can make any difference.

Whether your friend is a beginner, intermediate, or an expert at what he’s doing, he needs all the support he can get from his friends, and that’s where you come in. If your friend is a singer, go to his gigs.
Every Successful Person's Secrets to Responding to Haters
Throughout the course of our lives, whatever path we take, we can never fully shield ourselves from the opinion of man. As long as humans have mouths, they will always use them for their interest whether for a good cause or bad. All of us have experienced being told something offensive and rude, and unfortunately, for many of us, this has caused them to break down.
Who were once ambitious people are now hopeless and broken-hearted because they allowed the opinion of a mere person to dictate the fate of their lives. The people who had wild dreams and resilient spirits ceased to walk down the road because they believed in what a stranger (who barely knows you) told them. It’s saddening to witness these people’s dreams being shattered to an extent where they no longer want to dream again.
8 Misconceptions about Friendships in All Ages
Over the years, the definition of friendships has changed. From the constant exposure to media, it has displayed to us different portrayals of friendship in various situations. This has made us believe that a friendship must be this, must be that, and if the criteria aren’t met, then you need to reevaluate your friends. This false ideology has tainted our friends and even discouraged us to forge newer bonds because we’re afraid we won’t be able to fulfill the roles of what a friend must be.
