How to Build a Supportive Network of Family and Friends

It's no secret that women are often the ones responsible for taking care of their families and friends. And while it's great to be able to rely on others for support, sometimes you just need a break. That's where having a supportive network of family and friends comes in handy.

Having a supportive network can help you in many different ways. For one, it can provide you with emotional support when you need it most. Good friends will be there to listen to you when you're feeling down, and they'll help to lift you up when you're feeling low. Family members can also provide a much-needed support system, especially if they live close by.

Another great benefit of having a supportive network is that it can provide you with practical help when you need it. For example, if you're ever in a bind and need someone to watch your kids for a few hours, or if you need help getting to and from appointments, your supportive network will be there to help.

So how do you go about building a supportive network of family and friends? Here are a few tips.

1. Reach out to your loved ones

If you're feeling isolated, reach out to your loved ones and let them know how you're feeling. They may not be aware of what's going on in your life, and they'll be more than happy to help you out.

2. Schedule regular get-togethers

One of the best ways to keep your supportive network strong is to schedule regular get-togethers. This can be anything from a weekly girls' night out to a monthly family dinner. Whatever works for you and your schedule, make sure to make time for your loved ones.

3. Offer help when you can

If you see someone in your network who could use some help, offer it! This could be anything from watching their kids for a few hours to running errands for them. Not only will this help them out, but it'll also make you feel good knowing that you're able to help.

4. Get involved in your community

Getting involved in your community is a great way to meet new people and make friends. There are likely many different groups and activities that you can get involved in, so take some time to explore what's available. You can volunteer at your local barangay, plan activities for the office, join your church’s outreach drives, or be a part of the Nation of Sheroes.

5. Join a club or organization

Joining a club or organization is a great way to meet people with similar interests. Whether you're into sports, the arts, or anything else, there's sure to be a club or organization for you. You can start by checking out the different Facebook groups and find a niche you’re passionate about or join us at Sheroes. You’ll be surprised by the friendships you can build online!

6. Be there for one another

No matter what happens in life, always remember that your family and friends are there for you. Lean on them for support when you need it and offer your support in return.

Building a supportive network of family and friends is an important part of taking care of yourself. By following these tips, you can make sure that you have the support you need to get through anything life throws your way.
