Kira Asatryan is the author of the new book, Stop Being Lonely: Three Simple Steps to Developing Close Friendships and Deep Relationships. On the surface in our 24/7 world of social media, it would seem that loneliness wouldn’t be a problem, but the statistics say something entirely different. It’s not a lack of people in our lives, it is a lack of feeling that speaks to the heart of this new loneliness. Kira is a popular blogger on Psychology Today and other sites.
