Relationships Take Time And Energy!
Living over 50 years a person has had the opportunity to be in many relationships since I was a young boy. I am referring to many types such as family, friends, relatives, classmates, co-workers, strangers, basically, anyone you and I come into contact with could wind up being someone you could have a friendship with.
Of course, there are different types of friendships, some are mostly superficial, others are closer and more involved such as in dating, marriage, platonic, business and recreational relationships. No matter what type you are in, it is best to treat the other person honestly, fairly, respectfully, and basically like you would want them to treat you. ~ Bill Greguska

Encouragement for Good Friendships!
Think about just how valuable your friendship are with those you care about and be sure to let them know how you feel about them. Think about good times and fond memories that you have had together. Bring them up in conversation and try to recreate them.
Be quick to forgive and overlook things. Try to listen as much or more than you talk with others. Take clues either verbal or non-verbal about how your friend is feeling or what they are thinking.
Be in touch with not only your feelings but a sense of others people’s feeling that you consider close friends. Ask questions and offer help when you think they would not mind.
