I love living in a community where I know my neighbors. It's always lovely to chat with them about current events, weather, weekend plans, or even what event will soon happen in the eSpacio. But not all neighbors are created equal—some are downright awful! In this article, Juan Goals will tell you about some of the qualities that make a good neighbor and how you can be one yourself!
Here are some of the cookies you should bring to your neighbors:
Chocolate chips, because they're delicious and everyone loves them.
Peanut butter, because they're peanut butter cookies, means they have a lot of protein—a nutrient that is especially important if you're trying to get in shape.
Oatmeal raisin because we all need carbs sometimes. And it's not like oatmeal raisin cookies are unhealthy or anything—they're just so good!
It doesn't matter if you bake your own, pick up something from the store, or buy one from a bakery; what matters is that you share them with someone else who will appreciate it. If there are children in the house where you live (or even if there aren't), leave some out for them as well; no child should go without their daily dose of chocolate chips!
This can also be an excellent way to introduce yourself to the neighborhood if you have just moved into Lumina Homes.
Do not gossip.
Gossiping is not a good quality. It can cause problems and is not a good way to make friends. Being tagged as the Maritess of the town will not make you a good neighbor at all!
It's important to distinguish between the act of gossiping and simply having conversations with neighbors about mutual interests and events. If you're making a habit of talking to your neighbors about what's going on in their lives, it should be fine as long as you don't say anything negative or maliciously critical about them or their families—and even if that criticism comes more from humor than malice, which is always okay when done well (but not so much when done poorly). Your goal should be to have simple conversations with people who live near you.
Share phone numbers.
Yes, this is a serious matter. If you find yourself in trouble and need assistance, be it medical, financial or otherwise, having the contact information for your neighbors can make all the difference.
Be sure to share phone numbers with your neighbors (and vice versa) if:
You are going on vacation and have pets. This is especially true for condominiums where pets tend to get left in spaces when owners go away for long periods of time—and sometimes even die without anyone knowing about it until it's too late! Sharing your pet care plan with your neighbors ahead of time will help ensure that they know who to call if something happens while you're away.
You live in a location that is prone to earthquakes, fires, or other natural disasters. In these circumstances, emergency services will likely be overwhelmed; having someone nearby who can provide immediate help is essential!
Help before they're asked.
According to the dictionary, a good neighbor is someone who helps you out when they're needed. But what does that really mean?
If you want to be an ideal neighbor, it means helping people before they ask for your help. Here are some examples:
Helping them with their groceries or trash cans after their car breaks down.
Checking on their pets to see if they will go for a travel.
Watching their kids while they run errands or go on vacation so that they can focus on getting things done uninterrupted by childcare responsibilities (and vice versa).
The first step to being a good neighbor is to be tidy. If you have pets, make sure they don't leave piles of poop in the street, in their neighbors' area, or anywhere else that might get stepped in by someone who doesn't want to be walking through it. If you own a garden, keep it maintained and neat so that your neighbors can enjoy the view from their windows. Also, make sure that if you leave toys outside when not playing with them that they are in an area where other people won't trip over them or step on them when walking by.
Talking to your neighbors is a great way of getting to know them better. You'll learn more about their lives, they might share their favorite recipes with you, and they'll be more likely to help if something goes wrong in your house.
If it feels awkward or uncomfortable, don't worry! Try starting by saying hello when you see each other and then chatting over the fence. If it's still not working out for some reason, consider asking them out for coffee or tea sometime soon.
A good neighbor is a great friend.
If you're lucky enough to have a great neighbor, consider yourself lucky. A good neighbor is someone who will always be there for you when times are tough and will provide the support that only a close friend can offer.
A good neighbor should be one of your biggest cheerleaders in life—they'll never hesitate to tell you how proud they are of your accomplishments or lend an ear when things aren't going well. Or even support you by buying into your small online business. They'll also be there for you when times are tough because they know what it's like to struggle as well.
A good neighbor will always lend helping hands when needed, too—whether it's with some gardening or moving furniture (or both at once!). And if all else fails? A friendly face may mean the difference between having a stressful day versus an enjoyable one!
In conclusion, a good neighbor is the best kind of friend. They are trustworthy and dependable but also fun to be around. They are someone who will help out when needed but stay within bounds. A good neighbor is a type who knows their place in life and respects others' privacy while also keeping an eye on things, so they don't get out of control (such as trash overflowing from bins). The best thing about having neighbors is when they become friends!
