Midlife can be a bittersweet time when it comes to our BFF’s. Just like how a favorite outfit from the 1990’s that’s been tucked away in the back of your closet might not look as sweeeeeeet now, friendships also don’t necessarily stand the test of time. Why? Well, there’s a few reasons – career transitions, the friendship fall-out after divorce, friendships with parents of our kids winding back after those kids turn into adults. Those are just a few examples. Sometimes it’s just us. Doing the personal work of getting through midlife can be confronting if the people in our lives don’t relate to what we’re doing.
