#023 - Friendships are for a reason, season, or lifetime
By Elizabeth Dhokia
For the majority of us we will, at some point in our lives, experience friendships that come to an end. This can be an incredibly upsetting, confusing or even just weird. As most friendships are based on trust and mutual appreciation with another human being, they are mostly positive and enriching parts of our lives. Friendships bring joy and pleasure into our lives. They offer relief from the hardships of life, much needed support and guidance, sometimes they even take the place of family. Friendships often form a fundamental part of our daily lives. How do we cope when some friendships seemingly come to an end? It can be incredibly upsetting or confusing experience. I have found that a great strategy to cope with this is to think about the following phrase: Friendships are for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.
