Hey, there. I’m really glad you’re here – in fact, I’ve been waiting for you because I like you. “But you don’t even know me?” you might say. But I think I do.
You’re probably over-scheduled and under-rested. You sometimes wonder if you really can do it all.

Healthy boundaries, honesty, tact, sharing, and agape love all play a part in being and maintaining a circle of close confidants. She also deals with the inevitable challenges that face many relationships including how to handle conflict; life changes like a new baby, move or divorce; and when it is right to “break-up” with your friend.
