In a world obsessed with metrics and algorithms, we still believe in a good feeling over all else! Quality over quantity, especially when it comes to friends….
We believe that the best friendships, the ones worth investing in and digging deep for, are the ones in which you can express yourself freely.
The best thing about friendship is that no matter where we are, we always have enough to give it as much and as widely as we choose. To us, it is not about the amount of time we share with someone that determines a good friend, but it is about showing up with kindness and honesty, to lend support, and to ask for forgiveness and to be forgiving – with life’s ebbs and flows. Friendship is not about sacrificing your voice or who you are… sometimes the friendliest thing you can do is to take your space. With practice and experience (and making plenty of mistakes along the way!) we’ve learned that any healthy relationship is reciprocal – it is about being able to be ourselves and appreciated for that, it is not just about apologizing but about restorative behaviour. Relationships that are built on trust are long-lasting and deeply satisfying.
To all the friends we’ve made and lost along the way, we thank you for teaching us more about love, about trust, about integrity, about ourselves, and about how we want to show up to life, in our work and to our relationships. This month we’re sharing links about nurturing healthy friendships and relationships because it’s something that is very important to us, as are you.
