We Should Get Together
We Should Get Together is the handbook for anyone who’s ready for better friendships, now. It explores the four biggest challenges that adults face when trying to make or maintain friendships during adulthood, and gives you the tools to overcome them.

• Have you recently moved to a new city and found yourself languishing in the #NoNewFriends adult friendship desert? 

• Does it feel like it takes 27 text messages and five weeks to set up a date with a friend?

• Do you spend more time seeing your close friends though the screen of a digital device, instead of face-to-face?

• Do you have dozens of friends who’ll go grab a drink, but no one who would be there for you in a time of need?

• Want fresh ideas to bring more depth, meaning, and connection to your friendships?

Full of expert research, relatable stories, practical tips, 60 charming illustrations, 55 suggested activities, a book club discussion guide, and 300+ conversation starters, We Should Get Together is the perfect book for anyone who wants to have dedicated, life-enriching friends, and who wants to be that kind of friend, too.

Read Like the Wind Newsletter: February 2020
Trying to get someone to read a book you’re certain they’ll love but encountering indifference or resistance is not only annoying but ego damaging. Why won’t you obey my orders? and Don’t you trust my opinion? are the two implicit questions in that situation. Both are things you should never ask a friend, obviously, but that doesn’t stop anyone (for example, me) from trying.

˗ˏˋ father john mitski ˎˊ˗ on Twitter: "… "
Do you have the emotional/mental capacity for me to vent about the deaths of my entire family for a few minutes?

Hey! I’m so glad you reached out. I’m actually at capacity / helping someone who’s in crisis / dealing with some personal stuff right now, and I don]t think I can hold appropriate space for you. Could we connect [later date or time] instead / Do you have someone else you could reach out to?

How Guillermo del Toro Convinced Alfonso Cuarón to Direct Harry Potter | IndieWire
Del Toro then launched into a explicative-filled rant in order to convince Cuarón not to underestimate “Potter” just because it was a hugely popular film and book series. “He says, ‘Fuckin’ skinny, you’re such a fuckin’ arrogant bastard. You are going right now to the fuckin’ bookshop and get the books and you’re going to read them and you call me right away,'” Cuarón said. “When he talks to you like that, well, you have to go to the bookshop.”

Permission to Lament | Spiritual Friendship
But lament is different. If despair says, “The road has no destination,” lament sounds a contrasting note: “I know there will be joy when I arrive at the destination, but I’m not there yet, and this road feels very long and hard sometimes.” If despair gives up on the pilgrim way, lament keeps putting one foot in front of the other—while crying (Psalm 126:5-6). If despair’s head is downcast, lament’s face may be shining with tears but it is upturned, addressing God. If despair gives up, lament gives way on occasion—to frustration (Psalm 13:1-2), to groaning (Romans 8:18-25), to complaining (Psalm 22:1).
