Why is is so difficult to maintain friendship?
Maintaining friendships has become more difficult, especially after Corona.
With classes now online and less physical communication, you may feel as if you are less connected to your friends.
Today I would like to talk about how to better continue and maintain friendships.
Things to make it difficult to maintain friendship
1. Lack of time
Many people have busy schedules and may not have enough time to devote to maintaining their friendships. This can make it difficult to stay in touch and make plans with friends.
If you and your friends live far apart, it can be difficult to maintain regular contact and see each other in person. This can make it harder to maintain the friendship and keep it strong.
If you want to shorten the distance, you have to have regular call or texting.

3. Different interests and priorities
As people grow and change, their interests and priorities may shift. This can lead to differences and disagreements, which can make it harder to maintain a strong friendship.
4. Communication problems
Poor communication can be a major challenge in maintaining friendships. If you and your friend are not communicating effectively, it can lead to misunderstandings and conflicts, which can strain the friendship.
