You can't make people feel important when they are with you if you think lower of them. showing respect to others, even if they haven't done nothing to warrant it, is a paradigm shift for your neighbor and you and build a deeper trust.
2. Open To Shared Experiences
Life happens in your neighborhood - The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Learn to live it together. Celebrate the wins. Grieve when there is loss. Mourn with those that mourn.
Trust is a hard thing to do, especially in this climate. Trust begins when we value each other, when we see the creator in every human. Respect and walking out shared experiences together will build trust.
As good neighbors, we need to learn how to give, but also receive. Sometimes giving is way easier than receiving. We like to give advice, encouragement, even warnings or set boundaries, but it's hard to receive those back. Learn to listen. Be open to change. Be open to learn.
5. Learn To Enjoy Your Neighborhood
With the craziness of life and all the busyness we sometimes forget to stop and enjoy what's right around us - even our neighbors company. Stop, Breathe, and Enjoy - it's ok - You're allowed.
