Maintaining Adult Friendships

Remember when you were a kid or even a teenager and your friends were the people you lived near or went to school with? You were pretty much guaranteed to see each other everyday either in class or lunch or on the bus.

Fast forward ten plus years (depending on how long it’s been since you got out of high school) and if you happen to still be friends with any of those people, you see them maybe a handful of times a year – birthdays, holidays, maybe the odd night out for drinks.

My best friends are all my best friends for different reasons. They each add a richness that I just don’t get from being without them.
