(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.
