mates invitations – knowing how to spot the invitations  

What are Invitations?

When your mate is struggling he may find it difficult to tell you what is going on. If you notice things have changed for them, don’t ignore it. This is an “invitation” or they are telling you in the best way they can that they need some help. 

These are not one-off incidences, but rather happening more often than usual. Take 10 seconds of courage to step into their space for 10 seconds and ask, “hey mate, are you OK?” Then listen to what they have to say.
