Seasons of Friendship

Friendship isn't a big thing - it's a million little things.” ~Author Unknown

If you’ve been friends with someone long enough; you’ve probably found that each friendship or relationship goes through a season.  Some bright and sunny while others a little darker and cold. 

Regardless of the temperament of the relationship if it’s worth keeping there will be better days ahead. 

How do you determine whether to hold onto a friendship?

  2. For me, it's when you stop having things in common...stop having things to talk about. When awkward silences come easier than laughter and great conversation...that's how I know our friendship has run it's course.

  3. I don't know, TV. I have a really hard time giving up on people, especially friends. Sometimes friendships fall off the map, but there is always that opportunity to reconnect or make amends. I just had dinner on Saturday night with an old friend that hurt my feelings pretty badly years ago. She made immature choices, our lives went down different paths, we didn't talk for a long time. But, time heals, people grow, and we had a lovely time. I firmly believe that God puts people in your life for a reason.

  4. Hmm, well I think a true friend will be there, no matter what. Good times, bad times...all of the time! Friendships are tested and only the true friends that are there for you in the end, are TRUE FRIENDS :)

  5. Friendships have a to and fro sort of motion. One is more needy, then the other. When you get to a point where you feel as tho its all one sided you know you are thro.
    But its also good to consider that many friends come into our lives for just a season and thats ok - enjoy it all. You never know what is around the corner.
    Those pics over there on the side - omgosh, cuteness :)

  6. EEK! That's a tough one, TV. I'm someone who needs a lot of time if trust is broken or respect fails to be maintained. It's hard. But I'm learning that every friendship has a different value and meaning and need, and sometimes, these things can't all be fulfilled by one person. So sometimes, it's time to lower expectations or change expectations altogether of our friends...What do you think?
