Welcome to my blog. Come and stay for a while! 

fairweather friends

Friendships are often portrayed with reference only to the good - laughter, support, cooperation, altruism. But like everything else, it has its dark side - envy, bitterness, manipulation. Diana, Andrea, and I were talking on Twitter about the rifts that personal success can bring to what you thought were long-held friendships. You expect your friends to celebrate and support your success and when they don't, it leaves you bewildered, angry and confused. I don't believe that this is because they aren't really your friends at all - friendships, just like romantic relationships, aren't all about the good. So this leaves me to thinking - how do we navigate the negatives of friendship? Are you friends only with those who you think are equal with you? And when this balance starts to change, is the friendship in trouble?

P.S. Sorry to lower the tone but I have plenty of clothes, accessories and shoes still up and ready to find its way to you on Trademe here. Icon on the sidebar too!
