Hey hey! Friendship is something we all want and need. While it seems simple on the surface, it can feel so complicated. How do we make friends as adults? If I don’t have deep heart-to-hearts with someone in my life, are we still friends? What about neighbors, co-workers, and people I see casually or in passing each week? Do they count as great friends?
I invited one of my friends to help me sort all that out! Laura Tremaine is a podcaster, speaker, and author of two books. Her newest book, The Life Council: 10 Friends Every Woman Needs, is a great resource to help us reframe how we think about friendship.

“We have so many ideas about what women friendship should be.”
“When we withhold our likes and comments it hurts us. Withholding ourselves can be toxic to friendship.”
“When friendships end, that can be so devastating. Often if you have gone through that it affects the relationships that follow.”
“The ten friends are over your life. Some of the seats are meant to be that over the course of your life you are meant to have these people that will be good guides for you.”
“Look around at who is filling what space in their life and who they are to others. It elevates all of our roles to one another.”
