How To Make Adult Friendships with Female Friendship Coach Danielle Bayard Jackson

Soooo… how do we make friends again..? If this daunting question has run through your head, you are in good company (even though it may not seem that way). After college, one of the biggest transitions that was felt was drifting apart from friends and not understanding how (or where!?) to meet new ones. In this episode, we're finally going to learn how to make new friends as an adult! Look at us go. We’re having an engaging conversation with Danielle Bayard Jackson, a female friendship coach and educator who speaks nationally on the subject of friendship as a wellness imperative. She is dedicated to teaching women how to create and maintain better female friendships. We'll also be talking about women's cooperation, communication, and conflicts. This is going to be a good one, so stay tuned! Don't forget to subscribe and share the episode with your friends. Key points for finding friends as an adult: Don't feel awkward about speaking to an old friend and picking up where you left off. Become a regular somewhere. Rethink your fantasy of what it will be like to meet new people. It's not always going to be at a big party where it's really obvious. Instead, it might be in the line at Target or somewhere random. Stay flexible. Remember, there may come a time when a friendship ends or needs to be demoted. Be aware of friendship breakup territory and be prepared to handle it. Hope you enjoy!

Lessons from a 20 Year Old Friendship with My Best Friend, Danya

This is a very special episode for me because I got to interview my best friend of 20 years… Danya. She’s a musical theater actress, corporate nine-to-five, girly, thats obsessed with home decor (just like me). As we enter our 30s, we're realizing that friendships shift and evolve in many different ways. At one point, we became codependent and decided to take a friend break. Now that we have more knowledge on boundaries, self-care, and choice, we have a whole new approach to our friendship and environment. Listen to the full episode and take this episode as a quick reminder to shoot your oldest friend a text telling them how much you appreciate them. It will go along way and can’t recommend it enough. Key Discussion Points: Red flags of codependent friendships: Asking your friend to make decisions for you, and then blaming them when things go wrong. Spending too much time together, using it as an excuse to avoid addressing your own issues and insecurities. Green flags: Asking your friend if the relationship ever becomes too much for them, or they feel like they need a break from discussing certain topics, or feel like you are talking too much about yourself and the relationship. You give them the full freedom to be open and honest with you. Giving legitimate and valid reasons for your opinions on your friend's life.

Honest Reflections on Friendship: Breakups, Red & Green Flags, Codependency, and More.

Welcome back to season 2 of On The Rocks. I'm Olivia Noceda, and in this episode, we're going to be talking about friendships. I asked a question on my Instagram about making new friends and received a lot of amazing responses. Today, I want to share my thoughts and opinions on this topic, based on my personal experience. I hope you enjoy the show! In this episode, we cover 10 key points about friendships: To make new friends, start by doing something you already enjoy so that you have something in common with the other person. Spend time getting to know each other and building comfortability. It's important to have multiple friends and friend groups, and not put everything into one friend or one relationship. If you have friends with kids, ask yourself how you can relate to them and what you can do to connect with them. If you're in a toxic friendship or group, consider reducing the frequency of hanging out with those people. Navigating co-dependent friendships requires open communication. The best friendships allow for an open dialogue, and for you to bring up concerns you have about the friendship. A painful truth: friendships aren't supposed to last forever. Friendship breakups are sometimes necessary, but boundaries can be set to avoid a complete breakup. Having individual friendships in a group without others being left out, or vice versa. Ask yourself, what are you insecure about in your friendships? What are you insecure about in yourself, and how do you come off to your friends? What is making you feel this way? Before sharing your trauma with a friend, make sure they're emotionally in a place to be able to listen to you. Finally, green vs. red flags for friends in your 30s. To me, some green flags are someone who is conscious of their health and well-being, has their own life and interests, has lower expectations for a friendship, is open to trying new things, and balances out negativity with positivity. Red flags are the opposite of green flags, such as toxic behavior, being obsessed with their partner, or not being present. Feel free to DM me and let me know your thoughts about these ideas in general. Thanks for listening! Thanks to our partner Seed for sponsoring this episode.

On The Rocks: Season 1 Finale - Stepping into a Healthier Mind and Body

You are listening to the final episode of the inaugural season of On The Rocks! Throughout the season, I was given the opportunity to have conversations with some beautiful people about sober curiosity, the rise of mocktail culture, relationships, and critical social thinking. While wrapping up this season we can leave with knowing one thing for sure — Stepping into a healthier mind and body requires awareness and courage. It involves stepping out of your comfort zone, and above all, it requires a whole lotta love for yourself to make the first step. I encourage anyone who is sober curious or thinking about their relationship with alcohol to understand why they are doing it, why alcohol is not serving them, and why they are choosing not to drink. This way, when those moments arise, you will be able to confidently say no, it's not for me, and understand the greater purpose. To wrap up, I want to thank my team and YOU ALL for listening to the entire first season of On The Rocks. I hope to see you soon in just a few weeks with the trailer for season 2!

Transforming Your Life Through Confidence and Finding Your Voice with Les Alfred

In today's episode, we're joined by Les Alfred, a proponent of the "sober curious" movement. Les is an inspiration, authentic, and has been on a journey to find her own practice of self-love. We pull from child hood memories to spark inspiration and tapping into what brings us more joy and understanding how these little routines can make us happier.

During our conversation with Les, we covered the following points: Cultural norms that suggest drinking is a way to socialize and why it's worth reconsidering this belief. Ways to take pleasure in your own company and connect with yourself. Techniques for becoming curious about yourself and identifying patterns that prevent authenticity.
