Getting in the Holiday Spirit
How Can We Handle Negative Friendships?
What can we do to effectively handle friend problems?
– Talk to the friends you have problems with and tell them how you feel.
– Invite your friends to your house or to a movie to create a stronger friendship.
– Is it time to find new friends? Get to know someone you don’t know- they might become your new eat friend.
– Join a club, like Ladies First, or try out for a sport – these are great ways to make new friends.

– Make friendship bracelets and give then to your friends for their birthday.

– Make time for your friends and the will appreciate your friendship.

The Assumptions Game
We enjoy this exercise because how often do you get to say the very first things that come to mind about another woman and have that woman breakdown each and every assumption, politely and with much laughter?
