Friendship for Grown-ups is a small easy to read book, for women who work 40 + hours a week, for moms with little ones, and for women who wonder why they have no one to confide in. Honestly, I have never heard of Facts of Life, that is before me…but I really enjoyed Lisa explaining who she is and how she grew up. And how her childhood affected her as an adult. Her personal story feels just like mine. Making friends is hard, and finding someone to really confide in with all your dark secrets is really really hard. Lisa shares her experiences and how she deals with the grief of loosing friends and how she makes new ones. She tells us about her wall she built around her heart as a child to protect herself, only to keep her from revealing herself later in life. The 1st half of the book is Lisa’s story and it is intriguing. She describes her relationship with various friends and the falling outs…the pain and the counseling. The second half of the book is more “how to” and how she deals with friendships and grows them.
There is a great appendix with how to engage and encourage your friendships and questions to open up friendship.
