Shasta highlights the importance and benefits of having new friends.
Our Used-to-be-Friends: The Confirmed Circle
These are the friends who may have had a strong presence in your life at one point and who held a special place in your heart but have for various reasons become distant in your life. They may have moved to another country, started a family or simply are sorely distracted by the challenges life have thrown their way.
Who are Your BFF’s? The Committed Circle
Shasta firmly believes in the need to develop friendships to the point where they are able to enter the committed circle. Trust and intimacy have to be earned, not just found.
