Friends, How Many Of Us Have Them
Can you remember when you met your first friend? How it happened and where? Why you chose him or her in the first place? Was there a process you went through to determine if you could trust them or not? As children we don’t put too much thought into making friends. As long as we liked the same things, lived in the same neighborhood and went to the same school, it was a done deal.
Whatever selection process you used, I’m sure you had your share of friendship problems. From loaning money that you never got back, to letting someone borrow your clothes who thought they were a gift or how about that friend who turned against you when you thought they had your back?
Over the years our interactions with each other has made it difficult to maintain solid friendships. Most of us blow it when we have to confront a friend about his or her behavior. No one said it would be easy . . . right? Well it can be when we learn how to resolve conflicts the right way.
First, be open to hear the reason for their actions. Secondly, be prepared with a strategy to get to the heart of the matter. Thirdly, say what needs to be said, put the issue behind you and move on.
