Is The Friendship Contract Forever?
When you make friends with someone, you make a pact — knowingly or unknowingly — that you will support each other, have each other’s backs, give and take.
You make this unsaid promise at a moment in time, then maintain it over the years. Meanwhile, you, them and the world all change.
It’s not the same with romantic relationships. It’s accepted that when it stops working out, you move on.
