Show Notes

This week we're talking about how I was inspired by an IG post to talk about "low maintenance friend". I talk about my journey as the "low maintenance friend"; and what I'm doing to evolve in this role. Let's put some respect on the "low maintenance friends" in the world.

Low Maintenance Friend Definition and Article: https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/low-maintenance-friends_uk_5d00f481e4b0e7e7817071fa


Tips to help you navigate the journey as the low maintenance friend and improve your friendships:

1. Be honest with yourself and your friends about how you can extend yourself.
2. Extend grace to yourself and your friends when discussing your needs.
3. Be prepared for the feedback you receive. Don't take it personally. Try to understand that they're operating from their viewpoint. What they're saying is a reflection of how they feel.
4. Be open to making changes in your approach. Don't be afraid to being open to a new process or communication style. Boundaries are not walls.
