Humble yourself. Release your anger and just try and be happy. Don’t brag about your own accomplishments, ask about someone else’s. It will show that you’re interested and that you care. Always find an opportunity to help someone else for a change.
Listen. Sometimes we like to talk about ourselves ALL the time; for once, just listen, other people have problems too. It’s also good to give them feedback after listening and tell them how their problem might be solved.
Have some sympathy. If someone is pouring their heart out, they will want someone sympathetic to support and comfort them. Ask them what you can do to help them in their time of need. Imagine what you would need in their situation.
Love yourself. In order to be caring to others you must be caring to yourself. Once you have yourself taken care of, you are better able to care for others. For example, you can’t function very well as a babysitter if you only got 2 hours of sleep last night. Getting a good night’s sleep makes you a more capable and less grumpy person.
Work on your confidence. In order to be caring you can’t be insecure and scared. Dress well and make yourself presentable. You’ll feel better about yourself and be more open toward others. Straighten your posture and stand tall. You can’t do much to help others if you’re own body is slumped over.
Get the facts. Try and see the situation from “both sides of the fence”. There are always at least two sides to every story, and by seeing both sides, it gives you a better understanding of what the matter really is. The more understanding you have of a situation, the more sympathetic you may be. And remember to have empathy and imagine how you would feel in their shoes.
Try to smile at people as you walk by so you don’t put yourself out there as a rude person . Be sure to try to deal with problems in a happy joyful way and try to be kind and friendly.
Recognize the power of a hug. Sometimes people will need a hug without even realizing it. Tell the person you care about how much they mean to you exactly and why you need them in your life and that you love them. It might seem so little to us, but to the person it can mean so much and can speak volumes on just how much we want that person in our life.
Tell them you love them every morning and every night before bed.
