Podcast – Female Friendships Can Be Messy | More of Your Questions Answered

As promised, I continue my series on friendships — where I answer your juicy (and sometimes complicated) questions sent via Instagram.


You’ll find out:

  • Why very few friendships last a lifetime
  • How we often attach romantic expectations on our female friendships
  • What is really going on when a friend asks, “what have I done wrong?”
  • The priorities I’ve put in place re: my friendships vs family life
  • Why you have to look at your past when it comes to present friendship insecurities
  • The root of envy in friendships
  • Why it’s so important to be upfront with your value system when establishing new friendships
  • Why it’s healthy to let certain friendships run their course (and eventually end)
  • Why years and years of history with a friend shouldn’t be a major criterion for keeping them in your life
  • Why I think I’m so blessed by the friendships I have
  • Why we have to communicate with our friends vs test them

Questions asked:

  • “What do you do when you feel like you’re on a different path but you don’t want to break ties?”
  • “What do I do if I’ve been ghosted by a friend?”
  • “I love my friend, but she always needs to be in the spotlight and it’s exhausting.”
  • “What do I do if I’m often the butt of my friend’s jokes?”
  • “How can I be a good friend and not go out after 7pm?”
  • “I am a confident person, but somehow my jealousy of my best friend, whom I love dearly, gets the best of me.”
  • “How do I let my friends know that I need them to check in on me?”
  • “How do I end a friendship that’s become toxic?”
  • “How do I handle it if I do all the giving?”
