Ever wondered if the friendship you have with your BFF is going to last you a lifetime? Or if you are going to be able to sit down with her or him at a coffee shop when you are 50 years old looking back at times when you were in school?
Well you can certainly try your best to make that friendship last but before that you should accept the hard truth that not all friends last a lifetime.
Different people have different interest and as we grow our interest and likings change. When this happens most of the time we find ourselves looking for new friends which we can relate to..
Below are simple tips on what you can do to make that friendship last as long as it is meant to last.
Being honest with your best friend can be hard as the truth may hurt her. But if you do not reveal that little secret to her, sooner or later she would find out about it and that is going to hurt her more. So if you want the friendship to remain clean and fresh, tell her that secret and see how much more she ends up trusting you.
LEARN TO PRIORITIZE
When you are going through a dilemma, without fail you will make time to meet your friend despite your busy schedule to talk things out. Learn to practice this often so that your friend does not feel used. Meet up with your friend at least once a month even for coffee and see what a difference it makes.
DO NOT BE POSSESSIVE
Learn to let go when your best friend makes new friends. Just because she or he has a new friend does not mean that you do not play an important role in their lives. Although they have made new friends, you never know if they are willing to reveal hidden secrets to them like the way they feel comfortable revealing it to you.
Not all friendships last and some come to an end faster than we expect it to end. The secret ingredient here is that you should always have an open mind about friendships and as long as you have tried hard enough to make it last, you have nothing to worry about.
