Responding to Good News
When a friend or family member shares good news with you: Be engaged and interested. Ask questions, by seeking additional details about the event or asking why the event is meaningful. Express excitement and enthusiasm about the positive news. Show authentic interest and support. Being there for someone when they share good news can be a gateway conversation in the relationship. If the person trusts you to celebrate good news with them, they may also trust you when they need to talk about something more difficult.
