Befriend Someone With Special Needs: Befriend a person maybe in your class, office or neighborhood with special physical needs or social needs or someone you normally wouldn’t gravitate towards. Take opportunities to get to know this person’s interest and life journey. Proactively sit next to them in a class or meeting. Hold the door open for them. Surprise them with coffee or tasty treat, or extend an invitation to have lunch together. Keep an open mind and allow yourself to be surprised in the process. If you wait and carry this friendship long enough, you might discover a gift in this person or perhaps these kind interactions may grow into a life long friendship!
