FROM THE BOOK
Making Friendships Last
friends is like riding a bicycle. Sometimes the ride feels smooth and
easy. Other times you have to climb uphill or you hit a bump in the
road. That's OK. Every road has a few hills and bumps. You can't avoid
them completely but if you know how to handle them - when to pedal
harder, how to steer - you can usually stay on the right path. And in
the end a great friendship is worth the ride.
more time you spend with a friend the more opportunities you have to
create lasting memories. Over time, you'll develop certain things you
and your friend often do together. These traditions become an important
part of your friendship. Strengthening the bond between the two of you.
