Happy Friday! I hope you are having a great week!
Thank you to everyone for the amazing comments on my Girls Without Friends post on Monday. I am happy and sad to see it spoke to so many people. I had tweets and emails about it too and have been thinking about what everyone has said all week.
I have to wonder if the laziness of the people around us can be blamed a little bit on ourselves. If we dont hold people to a standard and let them know what that standard is, how will they ever know we are bothered?
I am issuing a personal challenge to all of you...if someone in your life isnt being the kind of friend you need, let them know what you need or want from them and give them the chance to live up to that. Many people come from big families and have no idea that not every relationship happens automatically. If you have been wishing a friend would step it up and be a better friend, tell them. This weekend. Lead with 'I need to feel valued in this relationship' and go from there.
If you have been invited out a number of times, now is the time to reciprocate - I am challenging you to call a friend you havnt seen in a while and invite her out! If she has had you over a few times for parties or dinner it's time for you to offer to take her our for dinner or invite her to your house!
Afraid? Ask yourself this...what's the worst that could happen?
Please report back!
Have a fabulous day!
