Developing Relationships – Learning – Reflecting

Building and maintaining good relationships is a life-long challenge and as teenagers it can be pretty uneven in terms of developing these characteristics. Wherever you are in your relationships, build from there. For example, if you review a relationship, you will probably see characteristics that are right where you want them as well as seeing characteristics that need work. Just appreciate what you have already built and focus on two-three characteristics that you would like to build. “How can I be a better friend?” “How can we build a better relationship?”

“I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship, it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff.”
