I was wondering how much time do you spend with your friends these days? I mean, when you have a career, a family, school, a relationship and everything else how much time do you actually have to spend with your friends? Is it different now then it was, say, when you were in high school or college? And if you're like me, maybe you miss the fun and closeness you had with some of your friends from back then that's different then the time you have with them now. What happens that changes our relationships with people? Is it that we don't "find" the time or we don't make the commitment to finding time? And what do we expect from our friends now that we're in the real world?
I ask myself these questions because as I continue to grow and change I wonder what kind of friend I am and what kinds of friends I have. I hear other people talk about their frustrations with some of their friends and I question them about the questions they have about their relationships with their friends. I don't think we ask ourselves enough questions. I think sometimes we go along to get along and then we realize, occasionally, that we don't like where we've been going. Let's do something about that this year.
Why not create a new habit in 2013---ASK QUESTIONS!
