I've been avoiding the topic Sara gave us for the July 24th Thursday Blog Project: What are some of your deal breakers when it comes to relationships/friendships/etc?
However, I need to work on catching up...
This is a sensitive subject for me because I don't go around calling just anyone a friend and I don't get into relationships on a whim. So, when I stubble upon a deal breaker after becoming emotionally invested in someone it is hard for me to distance myself from said person. It's difficult for me to "break up." I will fight to the death to save most of my friendships/relationships. But alas, at times you must say farewell which for me mean when I'm done, I'm DONE!
With that in mind, I could probably go for a very long time but I hate focusing on the negatives that cause relationships to end. I've spent more time than I wish to admit on focusing on the end of relationships and friendship that it would fill many lifetimes. I know they are important to discuss, but I prefer to keep focused on the positive side of the coin. Today, my BFF sent me this article titled, 11 Signs Of A Genuine Friendship that I'd rather focus on. What's written in this article is so true and can be applied to both friendships and relationships.
Please take a moment to read it and think about the things it has to say.
Now that I've said a few words on deal breaker, and genuine friendship, please take a moment to see what my fellow bloggers had to say on the topic:
