An expert's rich exploration of the intense, complicated landscape of women's friendships. "Do I have enough friends?" "Why did my friendship end?" and "What makes a good friendship work?" These are questions that F. Diane Barth, a psychotherapist widely recognized for her expertise in women's relationships, fields all the time. In I Know How You Feel, she draws out engaging stories from a lively and diverse cast of women, many of whom speak about feelings they haven't shared before. She explores how life changes affect women's friendships in subtle and not-so-subtle ways. Interweaving examples from classic women's literature to chick flicks, she provides grounded advice on how to manage betrayal and rejection, how to deal with a narcissistic or bossy friend, what to do when your best friend and your family don't get along, how to let go of a friendship that has stopped working, and much more. A timely, empathetic guide for women in their twenties to their sixties and beyond
