Are you fair in your friendships?

Twice I’ve had rocky times with friends in business, but during those times I discovered something amazing. Even while stressed out with my friend in our business commitments, all money and intellectual property dealings were divvied up fairly.

Fairness in friendship is an essential trait for me. It’s what I call “mini justice.” If you can reach that level of justice in your close relationships you’ll be better able to determine what’s fair on a broader social scale.

Fairness is often only tested when a challenge or conflict arises.

During the radio show we will discuss current cases in the news such as the Trayvon Martin lawsuit and why many cases that go through the legal system are perceived negatively by both sides.

During these times it’s important to reflect on your own beliefs around fairness both personally and socially.

Are your friends treating you fairly?

Do you listen to your friend’s concerns and respond or react? Can you calm down, be patient when you’re receiving either personal negative or challenging comments? Often, when you're patient you can understand your friend's point of view and reach a mediation point that works for both you and your friend.

Being fair to others and to your self may take a life time of practice. But, striving to find a quality of fairness for your friend toolkit inspires greater understanding and well being for your future.
