After years of feeling the steady peck of anxiety every time my friendships didn’t feel like they were at their most exciting, I got bored of semi-satisfying relationships. I wanted to feel enthralled, appreciated, and comfortable. I decided to look into connection: what it actually is, what happens in our bodies when we don’t get it, and how humans actually start to feel closer to each other. With a frantic weave of my story and research, I start to answer the question: how can we feel closer to our friends, partners, and families?
