When you’re young, it’s hard to imagine that anything can break the bond of friendship. Sure, life has its dramas, but once you become an “adult”, for the most part your life is set. You’ll have your career, you’ll have your family, and as sure as death and taxes, your best friends will always be there for you.
Then reality hits. While you weather the storm of life, some friends may cling to the same lifeboat as you, while others drift off on their own. Some of it may be due to distance, some may have parted ways due to a specific argument or “incident”, and others may just be different people than you were at the start of your friendship (yourself included).
How does one navigate friendship in adulthood while juggling a fast-paced, ever-changing world of work, family obligations, social networking, and everything else? How do you make all your friends happy, while managing to keep your own sanity? Which friends are your life-vests, who keep you afloat, and which are your anchors, who only bring you down?
Over the course of this month, we’ll explore various articles, ideas, stories, and words of inspiration about FRIENDSHIP today. I hope you will feel free to open up and share as well.
