National Friendship Day

“Don’t make friends who are comfortable to be with. Make friends who will force you to lever yourself up.” –Thomas J. Watson

Friendship is not always easy to come by, but when it does, hold on and never let go. In therapy we talk a lot about “circles of support” and the reason for this is because, no matter what you are going through, a reliable circle of support is one of the greatest tools you can have in your toolbox. It could be friendships with your partner, neighbors, family members, or co-workers. The people we have known for a few years now or since we were kids. These people make us feel loved, wanted and needed. They help build us up while we feel needed building them up. Make this month special and reach out to those friends, thanking them for being there as a reliable source of support!
