Dr. Miriam Kirmayer is a clinical psychologist, writer, speaker, and relationship expert who has spent the last decade studying adult friendships and connection. -On this episode we dive into why it’s so hard to make friends as an adult, what are some reasons why relationships end and how we can cultivate and make new friends as we attempt to “adult”. -“Unlike our relationships with our partners or family members, there’s no outright expectation that we have to stay involved in our friend’s lives. Our friendships are voluntary and it’s the ongoing choice we make to stay connected to our friends that makes the support we received from them so incredibly validating and important for our overall well-being and self-worth.” -Connect with Dr. Kirmayer and her research:, @miriamkirmayer
