Frientimacy is a new word in Shasta’s vocabulary that I would like to adopt. In this episode we talk about her area of expertise – Friendships! How to make friends, where to find them, which of the 5 circles they are in and how to be a great friend. I immediately bought both of Shasta’s books the same day I concluded this interview. There is no doubt in my mind that we have largely ignored the need for frientimacy in our relationships, our friendships, and I, for one, am not going to stand by and let that happen. We need friends, good friends. We deserve friends, good ones. I believe that it’s not only possible, it’s a necessity (like breathing, for example).
Come on this “friend-ship” cruise with Shasta and I as we explore very real life scenarios and what you can do to increase your frientimacy – including where to find the quiz to see how you rank. I did mine and shared it here on the show! Listen in and listen up, ladies – your friendships are about to reach a whole new level of awesomesauce!
