8/22 (Tue.) Guide to Maintaining Friendships(Tina/Gloria)

文章Rock » 週一 8月 21, 2017 8:53 am

Hi, this topic was originally from one of Tina Sun's hosting.

Because Gloria said that we need to have softer topics more, this very good friendship thing is chosen. Maybe we can forget about the fighting world outside for a while; talk about people you like and care, and get to know more about your friendship? Anyway, Isis, icecap and independence are far away, but our friends are right around us. :D

Guide to Maintaining Friendships

The article with sort of same ideas I found. FYI.
Learning How to Keep Friendship Alive: Time & Effort Required!

Toxic People: How to End a Bad Relationship

Article FYI.
How to Gracefully Get Out of a Bad Friendship
What is a bad friendship?

Sessions I
1. What do you think about the methods/efforts to maintain the friendship? Ridiculous? Useless? Necessary? Useful/Helpful?

2. Do you still keep in touch with your friends since childhood? Are they your old friends only or you call them your best friends.

3. Do you think if it’s easy to make good friends after graduating from the school?

4. Have you ever felt upset or pitiful when you realized you’ve lost contact with some friends? What do you do about it?

Curious ~ You see your colleagues five days a week, just like when studying at school. So… do your current good friends come from your workplace?

Session II
1. What's your definition of "bad friendship"? What kind of friends would you keep a distance or rather go without? Do you have friends with the symptoms mentioned in the video and articles? If yes, do you think they are bad friends?

2. Do you have similar experience to share with us? How did you end this toxic friendship? Or are you still in the struggle….?
