Work friends is a topic that leaves me feeling conflicted. It can be absolutely wonderful or it can be catastrophic. It all depends on situation and the people involved.
I discovered that the best way to tell if someone is a friend or an acquaintance is to ask yourself: “Would I invite them to lunch, and not feel awkward if they said yes?”
How should a person be? That’s the question Sheila Heti asks in the title of her novel/memoir. Christine Junge analyzes this question and more.
For me, middle school was my time to find true friends: people who didn’t know my past problems. But, before I met those people I met a girl named Madison.
It sounded too good to be true: I would essentially be getting paid to hang out with my best friend! Soon, she began to take her seniority too seriously.
I find our friendships are like a garden, sometimes you find yourself having to work hard in order to see growth and fulfillment.
