Show Notes

It’s no secret that most of us are struggling in the relationship category, these days. Perhaps your marriage or family relationships are good enough, and you seem to be content with that. But what of friendship? Do you have any deep, loyal, and honest friends with him you regularly interact? If you do, you are blessed…and unusual.

So why is it that we lack so much in the way of meaningful friendships? Today we are talking about obstacles that can prevent us from having close friendships.
