When Friends Hurt

in Friends, Relationships[ 7 Comments ]

What happens when a good friend hurts you?   How do you feel?  I had to deal with a situation recently where a friend was harsh (from my perspective) and frustrated with me while we worked on a project together.   I was so taken back and hurt by her comments.   She is a dear friend, and Read More…

Listening To Our Friends

I’ve spent the second half of my life in two separate NYC area homes.  Because I was no longer moving around, I’ve managed to include several good people in my life.   My friendships cover 30 years to the most recent of 4 years. We have sat over many cups of coffee and tea, and, of Read More…
