Relationships and friendships are hard. I think a lot of the reason why is that we will inevitably have to deal with failure and rejection as well as vulnerability. Brene Brown has some fantastic work on vulnerability and it’s importance in relationships. I’ve had some friendships fizzle and some straight up burn. But others are been worth all the work and I’ve grown more in depth as I’ve laid myself bare. If you have time, I’d really check out her talk on the Power of Vulnerability as it may give you some thoughts about pursuing new relationships.
