Observe how you usually react to others

When others share some good news with us, how do we react internally and externally? Sometimes we feel happy and celebrate with them; sometimes we are too engrossed in something else and don’t respond actively which may dampen the other person. Unintentionally sometimes we may even say or do something which is hurtful. So a few ideas towards better bonding would be:

  • Observe how you usually react to others when they share some good news
  • Ask to know more, show interest, listen
  • Appreciate the contribution of the person, the hard work and effort
  • Suggest some celebration
  • Share the news with others
