The Importance of Adult Male Friendships and Saying I Love You IRL To Battle Depression

importance of adult male friendships

“Even though we may be surrounded by loved ones, kids and spouses, and chat and tweet with buddies whose little faces pop up on our phone 24/7, it is imperative, for me at least, to hug my friends, to see their smiles light up a room in person, and to tell them face to face that I love them and I need them.

I’d be willing to bet that you need and would love that too.”

This is a story about the importance of adult male friendships and saying I love you in real life to battle depression.

This is my story but I have a sneaky suspicion it’s not only my story.

This is new from me, on Philly’s NPR affiliate WHYY’s Newsworks blog.
