Are very close friendships detrimental to one’s personal growth
Do any of you feel “trapped” in a close friendship and think you’d be better off without it? By this I mean talking every day, hanging out every weekend, knowing everything about each other’s lives, advising each other on silly to significant decisions.
While I valued these kind of friendships in my early 20s, I’ve been avoiding getting too close as I get older. I’m now in my mid 30s and happy to have more good acquaintances than close friends.
