One of the amazing experiences of life  is LOVING .  I want to talk about the different manifestations of loving people: friendlyness is a state of being (if the word exists 🙂

in my practice when I am i contact with teenagers, being with friends boys and girls is even more important then dating actually. As human beings we love to have “good” companies, friends to share our moments with.

I always urge young men to “work out” communications skills to have good chances to make new friends: ex:

be curious about the other person but not invasive…

– pay attention to what the other one is saying, make eye contact.

– laugh about yourself if something goes wrong…don´t take yourself so seriously! 🙂

– breath ……….to be relaxed

– smile a lot

– when you feel annoyed try to express as soon as you can what upsets you


O sentimento de Amar pode se manifestar de diferentes maneiras: hoje vou falar do amor na amizade!

Na verdade , conversando com muitos adolescentes no hospital, ficou muito claro que ter amigos e amigas é muitas vezes mais importante do que “ficar” ou ter “namorada”. Ter companheiras para sair, amigos para conversar faz muito bem para o florescer de sua personalidade. (de novo, na verdade, faz bem para a alma)

De todas formas existem recursos que se aprendem (praticando tanto na imaginação como na vida com o outro) que ajudam a criar vínculos de amizade e de relacionamento amoroso:

Mostre-se curioso mas não faça perguntas invasivas

– Preste atenção quando o outro fala e faça contato visual (olhar nos olhos)


-ria de você mesmo….al final um erro é uma boa oportunidade para aprender mais coisas sobre você e sobre o outro! 🙂

– respira…………..assim você relaxa e o nervosismo vai sumindo.
