This week’s question at The HerStories Project comes from a woman who feels that despite having many acquaintances and social activities, she has no close friendships. She describes her friendships as shallow (the relationships, not the people).
I tried to help with some practical advice, but I also felt that her question highlighted some major assumptions she was making about people and about friendship in general. I’m hoping the angle I took in my answer to combat those assumptions will help as well.
Come and see if you can add some assistance, too. I love that this column has turned into a group discussion that helps the person asking the questions and all of us who like to take care of our relationships.
