When friendships end!

When friendships end! If we are lucky in life we get to meet many people and make some good friends. We can make friends throughout life. And some we carry with us through our life.  Lots of people are still friends with people they met as children. But sometimes friendships come to an end.  This may happen quite naturally and by some kind of unspoken agreement. You just seem to realise you have nothing in common any more – life has moved on and what was a friendship becomes an acquaintanceship with some happy memories and the annual Christmas card. At other times the break up is rather more traumatic with angry words, accusations and on-going bad feelings. It has some elements in common with a broken love affair but it can be lot more messy. With a broken love affair someone usually makes it quite clear that this is the end. That may be painful but at least you can mourn the loss and then get on with the rest of your life.  It is not wise to end a friendship in anger. Mu

Relationships – when your friends don't like your partner!

Relationships – when your friends don't like your partner! When your friends or relatives don't like the person you have chosen to with, what do you do? Well, first of all, you are not alone! Many of us have been through the same experience. And many of us we have found ourselves not liking the partners that our friends have chosen. So what can you do? Most important, you need to know why! Don't just respond by dismissing your friends' concerns. Try to find out what it is about your partner that bothers them. Are they feeling left out and neglected? Are they afraid that your relationship with your partner will have a big effect on your relationship you have with them? Are they feeling feeling confused and neglected, because you are making much less time for them. If they are alone, or in an unhappy relationship, is your happiness with your partner painful for them to bear. You won't know until you talk to them. But you do nee

Surviving a Breakup with Your Best Friend Two friends (Photo credit: Wikipedia ) Boyfriends, work, kids, life crises, cultural gaps— there are all kinds of reasons why female friendships end. Sometimes the reasons can be quite strange and very confusing. Whatever the cause, you can be left devastated and asking yourself lots of difficult questions. Was someone to blame? Was the friendship worth fighting for? How can I avoid this happening again? The saddest thing is that women going through this often have no one to confide in. Losing a husband or lover usually means there is lots of sympathy around. But broken friendships don't touch the same chords and it can make other friends feel uncomfortable – is the same thing going to happen between you and them? Irene Levine is a journalist and psychologist. In her book, Best Friends, s he offers compassionate advice on how to find your way through the issues and she offers suggestions on when to save a r

Photo credit: Dimmerswitch Having a Bad Day -Tips For Dealing With Days When You Just Feel Down Some days you just wake up in a bad mood. I'm not talking here about depression or long-term problems. Just one of those days when you wake up feeling down. It might be the weather. It could be something that happened yesterday that made you feel bad. It isn't a serious issue but just for today you feel down.  What can you do? Here are my tips for dealing with the odd dark day. First try to workout why. Be very honest with yourself. If there is something you need to put right, then commit to doing it and make the first step. It will help you to feel better. Occupy yourself with simple work – cleaning or sorting out the admin in the office is great for this. Find something that will occupy your mind, give you a sense of achievement but not take great intellect. Do not take short cuts through alcohol, drugs or overeating – they provide a t

Meeting New People – Be Approachable

Meeting New People – Be Approachable So you want to make a good first impression when you meet new people at home or at work.  Yes, you know already about dressing appropriately and being polite.  But you want to go beyond that - you want to do your best to make sure that people really like you. Here are some tips; Know what your body is saying.   We all send messages with our body language.  How we stand or sit often tells other people exactly how we are feeling – we don’t need to say a word.   If you are nervous, you can get tense and sometimes your posture says “Leave me Alone” or “I’m too busy to speak to you. That isn't what you mean but it can be what others think.  So make sure you know what your body saying! Be aware of your posture and your gestures – make them welcoming.    Be open.   D on’t stand or sit hunched, or huddled up.  And don’t talk to someone with your arms crossed in front of you – they will think you don’t really want to know them.
