Listen To The Full Episode:
Friendship isn’t always easy. It isn’t always easy to make friends, keep friends or get rid of friends (if you ever need to). Why do some of us have such a difficult time letting people get close to us while others make friends on a daily basis?
As we transition through life, some of us continue to function in survivor mode far longer than necessary to keep us safe. At some point, we realize that the walls we’ve built are keeping out all the good stuff, as well as the hurtful. There may be a lot of wreckage on the other side of those walls, but it’s never too late to start opening up and putting yourself out there, into the world of awesome people who probably already like you.
At the heart of most relationships, friendship included, is connection, respect, and trust. But you need more than feelings to keep your relationships healthy and flexible to the growth that (hopefully) you are both going to experience over the years; you need to work. To nurture your bond and keep it healthy.
There are so many layers of friendship. Whether you’re like Toni, who makes friends easily and warmly, or like Angela, who pushes people away when they get too close, there is a lot to understand about why we behave the way we do.
Please join us as we recall our struggles and successes in the murky world of friendship.
