The Friendship Episode—How To Make (Best!) Friends As An Adult, Deal with Conflict & Friend Breakups, Diversify Your Friend Group & SO MUCH more ft. @broccyourbody & @olive.eeeats, friendship coach @friendforward, and my own BFF Healthier Together

    • Nutrition

I’m SO excited about today’s episode, which is all about friendship. I think we spend a ton of time thinking about relationships and trying to be the best partner possible, and while that’s SO important, platonic friendships are ALSO incredibly important and really under-discussed.



This episode is a celebration of friendship, and also is jam-packed with advice ABOUT friendship, including Carissa Stanton (@broccyourbody) and Olivia Noceda (@olive.eeeats) on:



* the story of how their friendship began

* their best advice for making friends as an adult

* how to build the intimacy to turn a friendship into a BEST friendship

* why allowing for awkwardness is so important in building friendship

* how they've made their long distance friendship work

* how to get over hurt feelings when friends move

* how they deal with jealousy (over money, relationships, etc) in their friendship

* where they get their incredible confidence

* what they love most about each other



Plus, friendship coach Danielle Bayard Jackson (@friendforward) answers all of YOUR friendship Qs, including:



* the number one thing people do wrong in friendships

* exactly what to do with friends you disagree with (about COVID, politics, their choice of partner, etc)—and how to know when to cut things off

* how much your friends should be similar to you versus expanding your bubble

* how to diversify your friendship group—including Danielle's secret tip for bringing more Black people into your friendship circle

* how to break up with a friend (including whether she recommends ghosting)

* an exact script for dealing with conflict with friends

* her best tips for making friends as an adult that aren't lame (both virtually and in real life!)

* how to stay close to friends in different seasons of life (friends with kids versus none, or single versus married)

* what to do when you wish your partner had more friends



Finally, my own bestie, Gretchen Lidicker (@gretchen.amanda) joins me to chat about:



* our personal friendship story

* our secret to fast-forwarding intimacy in friendships

* how to deal with anxiety and chronic illnesses in friendships

* Gretchen's genius tips for long distance relationships

* how to use a time audit to improve your friendships

* their best tips for making new friends, including what to actually do together
