SEARCHING FOR MIDLIFE FRIENDS
In our search to develop quality midlife friendships, we've been taking
a trip down memory lane.
Many of us have experimented with social networking in order to
locate childhood friends.
I hope you are having excellent results.
- We reconnect with an old friend and seamlessly (and surprisingly) resume our long-ago
- We realize the years apart have created a divide too wide for certain old friends to
navigate. Not a surprise.
- We learn there are one or two old friends who harbor unresolved anger toward us. Oh pul-eeze!
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
It is worthwhile to double check your expectations.
Plus, it's helpful to distinguish between fantasy and reality to keep expectations grounded.
Have you begun to locate old friends through social networking?
Any happy reunions?
What can you do to make an old friend become a quality midlife friend?
