We’re back for Part Two of our conversation on cultivating epic friendships!

Continuing on from last episode, I’m joined by my real life soul sisters, Sally Jane Douglas and Tamsyn Neill. 

In Part Two of this intimate, insightful conversation, we’re delving into some of the more tricky and uncomfortable aspects of friendships that are often not talked about, and that can sometimes trip us up, impact our connections, and even cause us pain.

Tune in to hear how we make time for our friends even when life gets full, why you’ll never catch us ‘ghosting’ anyone, how to close out a friendship loop when your relationship has run its course, the easiest way to stay in touch with old friends, the red flags that may signal you’re in an unhealthy friendship, how to accept that a lifelong friendship is over, how to break up with a friend in a way that honours and respects your shared history, the surprising skill that’s CRUCIAL for meaningful relationships, and what to do when a friend always says they want to catch up… but never do.

Just like last week’s episode, this conversation is the next best thing to being on a real life juice-date with the three of us. It’s raw, it’s unfiltered, it’s filled with so much love… I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed recording it for you.

    I loved this 2-part series and you all are so special and so lucky to have eachother. xx Honestly, I don’t think there is one single podcast that hasn’t blown my mind. You and everyone you touch and the friends you love and the people you interview are just so amazing. I would be writing something for every podcast if you really knew how much it has all helped me! Thank you ALL for sharing yourselves and your lives and real struggles (and good times) so freely. You truly are a light and so is everyone you touch.
