But we can determine how the breakup—or make-up—affects us emotionally, says LA-based depth psychologist Dr.
Carder Stout who specializes in relationships (and frequently contributes to goop—see here).
If we feel undermined or betrayed, we may ask ourselves if we knew the friend as well as we thought, or if we misjudged her character.
If we ourselves have caused the fissure, we self-criticize.
This statistic illustrates findings of a survey on the share of individuals who are current or past users of Adult Friend Finder in the United Kingdom (UK) in June 2017, by age group.
But most of us do not take the time to fortify it, and so we become easily disturbed, exhaustingly sensitive, and more susceptible to fear and doubt. Our ego, or sense of self, may vacillate over a lifetime, but learning to love ourselves (warts and all) and staying true to our guiding belief system is imperative if we want to thrive emotionally—no matter what the situation.Young Adult Friends (YAF) is a community of Quakers, age 18-35ish, throughout the PYM area and beyond.We are at different places on our journeys, and we come together for fellowship, rejuvenation, and to deepen our connection to one another & the Spirit.No relationship is perfect—and even our very closest, best-of-best-friends-forever bonds can deeply disappoint us, or, worse, break apart.
Whether it’s a case of someone saying the wrong thing, falling through on an important commitment, or simply fading away, we can’t always control what goes wrong in our friendships.
The gatherings are held quarterly – fall, winter, spring, and a YAF community at PYM Annual Sessions in the summer.
