Featuring Dr. Eileen Kennedy-Moore, clinical psychologist and friendship expert
As an introvert, I struggle to be the one to make friends. It wasn’t such a big issue in school and college but once I started working and officially becoming an adult it became really hard. There’s a lot more effort to making new friends as you get older.
The other one I struggle with is how my existing friendships have changed. As we started to have kids, not only was it harder to meet up but the nature of the relationship changed too. Once where we used to be at the forefront of each other’s minds we are now in the back seat (maybe the trunk) as young kids take up so much mental energy.
