[BONUS] Simplifying 2022 #3: Building Up Your Friendship Village

The last few years have shown us just how important it is to have rich connections with others—that’s especially true of having strong friendships. Before the pandemic, you might’ve noticed your friendships have changed in shape and number over the year.

In the third part of our Simplifying 2022 series, Emily is joined by one of her dearest friends, Jane, on the show to talk all things friendship! They talk about how their own friendship began a couple years ago, some of the challenges they’ve found in making adult friendships, and how they’ve learned to create space to be vulnerable and let others in, because authenticity helps new and old friendships blossom and grow.   SALE!
