Expect others to communicate with you first

If you always expect others to communicate with you first, such as texting, phone calls, or preparing for interviews, you rely primarily on them for your social interactions, and that’s not good.

If you look at others, you don’t take the lead in relationships which makes others feel undervalued, and feel that the effort is one-sided, and when you are proactive you show your interest in that relationship and your desire to maintain it.

Constant judgment on the choices of others

Judging other people’s choices without putting yourself in their shoes gradually pushes people away from you and makes your relationships strained with them, so try to be more open and understanding of the decisions they make, and avoid criticizing their decisions just be listened to.

The closed mind and the talk in one topic

A closed mind, not being open to new ideas, refusing to think about new perspectives and ideas, and sticking to only one topic when talking to others even if it arouses interest are all things that lead to the rigidity of your relationships with others.
