On average, we’ll meet 10,000 people in our life time*, and connect with around 400, with 1 in 12 of those becoming a friendship.
Meet Karlla and Chris.
Karlla and Chris met years ago through work in a local school, it was in the teachers lounge they realised a mutual passion for poetry. That passion eventually changed their friendship, from work colleagues to business partners, launching their own community project – Rise Up.
Karlla says she owes a lot to Chris, as a mentor, a friend and for pushing her to believe in herself.
Friendship is defined in the dictionary as ‘A mutual trust and support between allies.’ That sums up the ethos Dingile, Elom and Rebecca live by pretty well:
“Check up on your friends,” starts Elom, “the ones that seem super strong. They’re normally the ones struggling and you wouldn’t even know.”
Time is what makes a friendship – so whether you’re looking to reconnect over dinner, catch up with a few drinks or start a new relationship altogether. Remember to celebrate the good, support through the bad and acknowledge each other’s passions.
Good times. Together
Christmas is a time to get together, but 1 in 10 of us feel like we don’t have anyone.
