On today's episode, I interview Ashley Abramson, a writer who is so brave she deserves a spot in Gryffindor, for sure. Ashley writes for the New York Times, The Cut and many more publications about topics like motherhood and mental health. A few examples of her articles are: "I Got Married Before I Was Ready", "This Is What Postpartum Anxiety Feels Like" and "A Motherless Daughter, Mothering". Sharing that stuff on the interwebs? That's what I call bravery. "We don't write FOR love and acceptance. We write FROM love and acceptance." — Ashley Tune in to hear how Ashley manages to turn her pain into something helpful for other people through her super personal articles. (I have to admit, I was taking notes the entire time she spoke. She's a rockstar.)
Episode 16 is all about friendship—but a very specific type of friendship I call "soul friendship." I'm talking about the kind of friends you do life with, who support you, love you and are there to steer you back toward shore when you're veering off course. Because who doesn't want more people on their team? It takes a specific set of skills to make (and keep!) soul friends. In this episode, I'll break down what soul friendships require to truly last.
