How Do We Make Things Right Again Between Friends?
Comedy, but with a dose of wisdom 😉

Have you ever messed up with someone so bad, so very very badly? Then you might relate to Joey, or even Ross in this classic Friend's clip! We've probably all been there, where we, or someone we know does something that causes hurt and breaks the trust of a relationship that really matters to us. It can be really hard to know what to do or how to make things right again, but the key is that we still try... At least Joey and Ross are doing their best... bless them, they'll get there in the end!
The important thing to remember is that we all make mistakes, and we all do bad things at times. We're human! The question is; did we or the other person really mean to cause harm? Was it their intention and is it who they really are? Relationships can break when we are too busy judging people by their behaviour, rather than their intentions.
When things go wrong the important thing to do, if it's important to us, is to try and work things out. The best friendships and relationships are those which have weathered the storms of life together, when we've seen each other at our worst and forgiven it. Those are the ones that become deeper and stronger than ever. Trust is built when we know ourselves, and that the other person is ultimately there for us and not going to push us away, or punish us, no matter what!
