The Patterns of Friendship as We Age
With age, we become more insular. Relying on long-term friendships for companionship. As we move on and life situations alter, we might find ourselves living in a new location, or in the same location but with a different set of circumstances. We change over time, and sometimes our older friendships don't move with us. Statistics show that one of the biggest fears faced by elders is loneliness. But because making new friends can be difficult, we stop trying. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy. This episode is an insightful discussion on why we do it - and how we can change behaviors.
