COMPARE & CONTRAST MIDLIFE FRIENDSHIPS
Does the phrase 'compare and contrast' bring back memories of
high school exams?
It's instructive to reflect back and remember other aspects of high school,
especially long ago friendships. Interesting tidbits about our current friendships may surface.
In other words, we can transform the overused 'compare and contrast' phrase and put
it to good use as we view our current friendships.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Sharing the seasons of life with at least one childhood friend is a special gift.
Treasure the friendship if you are fortunate enough to have it.
UNHOMEWORKCompare and Contrast:
- your current friendship needs to what you needed in high school.
- your current friendship wants to what you wanted in high school.
- your current level of friendship satisfaction to what you felt in high school.
(Interpret satisfaction in any way that suits you.)
You may want to go back to friendships before high school. Go as far back in time as
your memory allows. However, there is no need to compare and contrast high school
and current memory skills. We all know the deal.
