With the New Year’s arrival we thought about how many people may have lost friends within the last year and we are not talking about loss as in someone dying but loss as in the end of a friendship. This led us to think about what happened with Ryan Reynolds. Our motto is “Love Laughter and Trust are the Cornerstone of True Friendship!” because you can’t have a true friendship without those three ingredients. Ryan suffered a betrayal (visit http://www.cnn.com/2015/09/22/entertainment/ryan-reynolds-baby-pictures-feat/ for the full story) from a lifelong friend and went through the stages of mourning the end of a friendship. Ryan’s story showed us that just because you’ve known someone for many years does not mean that person really is your friend. We usually thing those people who’ve known us the longest would be more trustworthy but that is not always the case. Don’t use length of time to determine friends instead judge them by their treatment of you. Did you end a friendship? If so why?
