I am PUMPED to have one of my besties, Angie Lee, on the podcast to talk about all things female friendships (especially as we get older!). I think to some degree we all have sisterhood wounds that come from being hurt by girls growing up.
Maybe you’ve experienced female friends as being catty, mean, inauthentic, or jealous? But as you get older, there’s still a deep longing to have high-quality women in your life who see you, support you, and honor you for YOU? Ya, feel me?
I’m here to tell you my love, that it is SO possible to have healthy friendships with women, but it takes work. You have to be willing to BECOME the type of friend you wish to have. High-quality relationships of any kind require you to be authentic to who you are and become an excellent communicator.
Because let’s be real… feelings get hurt in any relationship, but what matters most is how do you repair and reconnect afterward.
What I love about this episode is that we give you examples of how to have courageous conversations with friends when you feel hurt, and how to set really clear boundaries and expectations first.
Not only that but we answer a question that comes up a lot in the Pause Community, which is “Should I stay or should I go?”. This question comes up not only in friendships, but in romantic relationships too when one of you is growing and the other isn’t doing the work. Tune in to this episode to hear what we have to say on this topic! (It will help you find so much clarity!)
Plus Angie and I also dive into:
There’s seriously so much juicy goodness in this episode if you’re craving great girlfriends that embody both playfulness and depth!
Be sure to give it a listen!
