Narrator Robin Eller was an astute choice to read this striking advice on how to find the intimate friends we crave. Her phrasing is nuanced, her pitch patterns are creative and sophisticated, and her sure-footed grasp of these ideas and suggestions makes them sound powerful and true. Aimed at women, Nelson’s advice begins with a description of intimacy that will resonate with everyone: It’s a feeling with someone that we matter, that we are understood at a deep level, and that we can trust our friend to accept us and prioritize our needs when we express them. Recommending that we give up perfectionism and impatience when we’re developing intimate friendships, she invites us to focus on what we can control: being positive and generous, living consistently, and being courageous about expressing our vulnerabilities.
