Part 4. Go ahead and catch up on Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, or what got it all started.
(It is okay, we will wait.)
In order to learn more about friends and friendships, I asked some of the followers of this blog and the answers appear below.
Question 4: How much time in a given week do you think about friendships?
Probably an hour at the least and a few hours at the most a day, but probably every day.
It ebbs and flows….when life is busy, not as much, but I am okay with that because I feel safe knowing that they aren’t intentionally forgetting me and vice versa.
Depends on the week/work/kids etc. probably 3 hours if you count weekly coffee catch-ups.
I think about friendships less often, but they come to mind typically when there’s a special event approaching like a birthday, anniversary… or this survey.
Well, if you could see inside my brain…
I think about my friends many times throughout the week.
A lot, and I’ll leave it at that. Probably because that’s sort of a sore spot for me right now.
As a single person, they are my family. I pray for them as they are at their jobs, with their family etc.
In tougher times, when they might be going through a difficult period, and vice versa I invest more time and thought.
Would always like it to be more.
This week, thanks to this survey, a lot. In the typical week, very little.
I think about friends a lot. Daily, maybe hourly.
And I try to find ways to pass along a cheer or a love note or something to remind them they have someone who is FOR them.
Almost every day.
On to Question 5. Question 9 will be here before we know it.
Let’s press on together.
I promise, it is worth it.
