Fellow blogger Raili at Soul Gifts is sponsoring a Circle of Friends Challenge. The topic for week one is to develop a friendship road map. After an exhaustive Google search, I discovered an image that reflects my views on relationships.
My inner circle are those closest to me and know me best. This circle is intentionally small, consisting of my husband and two best friends.
The next level includes those who loving, but are inattentive and distant. This is where I would place the majority of my family.
The outer level is everyone else: distant relatives, co-workers, and other casual acquaintances. These relationships are based primarily on circumstances.
This is my view on friendship. What about you? How would your friendship mud map look?
