Navigating Difficulties in Friendships

Hello everyone,

I've been having some challenges in my friendships recently, and I could really use some advice or guidance. It seems like misunderstandings and conflicts have been arising, and it's putting a strain on the relationships that mean a lot to me.

Have any of you experienced similar situations with your friends? How did you navigate through those difficulties and find resolution? Are there any communication techniques or strategies that you found helpful in rebuilding trust and strengthening the bond?

I value your insights and personal experiences, so please feel free to share any tips or suggestions you may have.

Thank you

Mercury retrograde had only turned direct a little while ago. It has an effect on these things

Edit for a bit more explanation:

Mercury can be either retrograde or direct. Direct is the normal flow and retrograde is when the flow is disrupted to resteer humans and make them see certain flaws or new directions. Mercury is the planet of mind and communication. So during Mercury retrograde communication can be difficult and tech is more prone to failure.

Kind regards,

CW

Friendships can bring the greatest rewards and the greatest challenges. And being close to certain people now does not mean that we will remain close to them for the rest of our lives.

I had such a situation with someone who had been my closest male friend for many years. The details are not important, but looking back I can see that there were many minor niggles and differences over the years which suddenly came to a head, beginning with a very unexpected and angry letter from him.

The main thing was that we kept on communicating, even if only by letter. And lots of things were said. Gradually we accepted that we were both at fault, that the behaviour we criticised in the other was also a reflection of something within ourselves. We had been like spiritual brothers, and it needs someone who is very close to us to get under our skin and bring things to the surface.

Eventually we resolved things, although there was never quite the same easy companionship we had previously known, and I then moved to a different country. Gradually we lost contact, and when I searched for him online a couple of years ago I found that he had died. No doubt we shall meet up again on some other plane and laugh at how foolish we were, and no doubt it all happened as it was meant to.

Peace

Just talk straight- cut to the chase- there would be between the lines communicating going on. Getting, blurting things out. It could actually have something too do with them..

Understanding and patience is best..
