I can't impress enough how important this is, there are so many lovely, warm women I have had the pleasure to work with whose social circle has shrunk - shrunk to such a small size that social outings/gatherings become a feared event. The more you shrink back from social interaction the harder it becomes to break through that barrier as time goes on....time does not make this easier.
