This week on Everything is Fine

8

We’ve got friendship expert Dr. Marisa G. Franco on the show this week, and we’re talking about how to make friends in middle age; how to maintain friendships; the common mistakes we’re making in our friendships; how to manage conflict; and lots more. I found it to be a very encouraging episode, and I hope you do too. Listen in on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or wherever you get your podcasts.

8 Thoughts on This week on Everything is Fine

    I’ve had a fair amount of shrinkage in my life, and Dr. Franco is SO GOOD! I especially like how she pointed out our capacity to be our own worst enemies, creating self-fulfilling prophesies that are the opposite of what we really want. Genius, and gently explained. Kim, have you seen “Godless”? It’s a 7-episode series on Netflix by the writer-director of “The Queen’s Gambit.” The show is set in New Mexico in the late 19th century in a town where the population is mostly female due to a mining accident that wiped out nearly all the local men. It’s replete with gorgeously infinite Western landscapes and so many intriguing characters that I changed my mind every episode about which one was my favorite. It features bad men preying on decent ones as well as righteous men chasing down the wicked. Plus Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) in chaps! Happy Princess Birthday.

    Really loved this. So much wisdom! It makes me realize that many of us still have our “inner seventh grade girl” close to the surface. I’m going to be showing my friends how happy I am to see them with intention from now on (i am always happy to see them, but do I show it?). I was happy to hear that transitional periods are good times to make new friends as my life is full of transitions right now. Good to have hope! Thanks for all the excellent questions you two asked!

    I know every week I say, “this show was excellent,” but this show on friendships was simply excellent. Dr. Franco has terrific insights and knowledge and seems such a kind person. And she shared so many concrete practical suggestions for making and maintaining friendships. Wowzer. I went through a friendship breakup over ten years ago and still find myself grieving over the loss so listening to her explaining how those emotions work was so helpful.

      It is so good – I’m glad I stuck with it. I cried like a baby at the end. Can’t wait for season two!
