WELCOME TO MIDLIFE MEMOS
THE SWAMP GODDESS® GUIDE TO MENOPAUSAL MAYHEM AND AGING ANGST
BLOG #50 by Wendy Kyman, Ph.D.
MIDLIFE FRIENDSHIP SECOND CHANCE?
Have you been dumped?
Has a friend told you the relationship is finished?
How do we handle the unexpected pain of it all?
What if we want the friendship to continue?
* If your friend offered a plan to repair the friendship:
- you can agree to conform to her idea
- you can offer a plan of your own.
*If your friend has not offered a plan to repair the friendship:
- you can ask to work together on strategies to save the relationship.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Your friend may refuse to give you an explanation. OWWW!
Nor is she interested in repairing the relationship. GEESH!
In this case, her actions speak very loudly. IT'S OVER!
In the event your friend is interested in repairing the friendship, write up
Is your friendship plan balanced?
Does your plan include proposals you will not, can not keep?
Will your friend agree to the plan? Why?
