Being Soft and Approachable

Are you approachable? What I mean is, are you available to your loved ones who need to approach you? Do they feel free to bring a concern to you? This is a key aspect of a healthy relationship. You must be available, caring about anything that concerns them. If in doubt, ask them. ‘Do you feel free to come to me with anything?’ Be ready for an answer that may challenge you.
