Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him.
And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
Ecclesiastes 4:12 [NKJV]
True. Very true, you are stronger together. But you don't just come together and then everything is fine ... and they lived happily ever after.
Friendships can get dull, cool, even freezing. And you know how fragile frozen stuff is. (Click here if you don't!) So we come back to the qoute and the image above. There is indeed a threefold, or fourfold cord. You have a friendship but you can't right now trust the power of friendship - you have to unfreeze it before you can. So how do you unfreeze a friendship.
I have been on an intership in sweden, many trips and vacation for the last months. Some of the friendships and family relationships I had where put on hold for that period. I feel them unfreezing organically in some cases. For other relationships I don't know the cure yet. Make sure you keep your relationships on a "sound and alive" level and share any advice or thoughts?
