What do people look for in friendship? Are they hoping for someone to stand alongside them, whatever befalls them? Are they hoping for the odd coffee or chat, to avoid loneliness? Are they after invites to all the events, to feel part of something bigger? What is it people are looking for?
When they think that it is found, what are the expectations upon that friendship? Is it a partnership of equals? A one sided relationship? What is it that will satisfy?
The crave for belonging, the craving for friendship is built within the whole human race. The challenge we face is making those friendships work. What are you looking for?
