Friendship Intimacy is where you feel seen and safe in a satisfying way.
How close do you feel to your friends right now? 1-10. 70% of us rate 5 or below.

3 Common Dominators Connect All Friends
The more time we spend the stronger the friendship triangle. When we are lonely, we need to move some people up the triangle and not meet new people. This triangle is about how much we practice.
When we have high positivity we feel satisfied.
When we have high consistency we feel safe.
When we have high vulnerability we feel seen.
Self-Care: Reach out to an old friend and ratchet up the consistency factor.
Play Idea: Use YouTube to find karaoke tracks and have a family sing-off.
