When Connections Matter

The ShaneCast - Episode 69 - When Connections Matter

When Connections Matter

I admit it. I have been finding nothing but frustration with adult relationships. Something about friendships is broken and, as an adult, I am curious what that means. What is it about relationships that are so hard and why do we expect so much from others? In my experience, I keep running into people who expect a great amount of others -- which is not a bad thing -- but this level of expectation has morphed somehow. It is has reached a level where friendships are more about social entertainment. The message I keep hearing is: "what are you going to do in order to entertain me" rather than "what can I do to entertain you".

I give a lot of myself in order to maintain friendships and nurture them but I feel like I have been hitting a brick wall because, apparently, I don't give enough. Something is broken with friendships and the weird expectations we put on others rather than putting that level of expectation on ourselves.
