Forming and Maintaining Friendships
In this episode, Jessie has her friends Jamie and Maddie on to discuss their experience with friendships post-grad. Finding and upholding friendships can be draining, confusing and even lonely at times. But as we start to learn ourselves and recognize our expectations, we begin to see that communicating those things with friends takes those relationships to deeper levels (or helps you realize it's time to let that friendship go!). We're all about trying to cultivate rich, lasting relationships and we hope that this episode gets you a little bit further on your journey. Thanks for listening!
