Strengthening Our Friendships :: Susan Seay [Ep 289]
Deep friendships are essential to our lives. Whether we’re extroverted or introverted, have a lot of friends or a few, we all need someone else to walk through life with. I’m excited for you to hear from Susan Seay, a mom of 7 and a mentor to many. She shares some great advice on keeping our friendships strong during life’s challenges.
“We’re all in the same storm. We’re just not all dealing with it in the same way. We don’t even have the same viewpoint on just how big this issue is or how small it is. If I need to remember, that’s not why I chose them as friends. I didn’t choose them because we agree on everything. We’re always going to be different and unique and varied. It’s our foundation that keeps our relationship strong.”
We talk about fighting back against insecurity and comparison which can break down friendships. And we get into how to have a healthy disagreement with a friend and stay close. Susan also shares tips for staying connected with friends and extending grace for misunderstandings and miscommunications that happen in our hyper-connected world.
