Maybe it’s just me, but finding the time to nurture friendships as an adult feels exhausting sometimes (and doesn’t that defeat the whole purpose of a friendship?) For so long, I’ve wondered if my lack of deep, meaningful friendships (outside my marriage) is just the people I have chosen over the years. But lately, I’ve started to question what it takes to find those meaningful friendships that I crave and have traveled down a path of curiosity, trying to make sense of it all. Allow me to take you on that journey with me. This is what I’ve learned.
