Sharing Your Truth to Deepen Friendships • X35 FULL EPISODE UP FOR A LIMITED TIME

We will learn: Why your fears about oversharing are probably invalid How to get past your fear of shame How to add more depth to your friendships What do people really know about you? Do you have things that you just wouldn’t dare share? Think about it: We wonder why we feel lonely but at the same time, we don’t tend to let people in. How can we feel fully known or accepted if most people don’t even really know who we are?  We spend a lot of time and effort crafting these perfect lives to post online. We spend hours scrolling through each others’ highlight reels. Then we have a false sense of comparison of how the world and the people in it really are. Our struggles, and the things we view as imperfections, are all part of the human experience and they’re more common than you might realize. What if, instead of hiding your perceived flaws, you opened up a little? What if you trusted that you’re always doing the best you can with what you know at the time and felt worthy no matter how many little mistakes you’ve made? How freeing would that feel? How would your friendships change if they were based on the real you instead of this curated version of you? How would your conversations change if they went further than surface level? Well today we’re gonna open up a little. Or at least learn how. Our guest is Laura Tremaine. She is a writer and fellow podcaster. Each week on her podcast 10 Things To Tell You, Laura asks a question that listeners take to their journal, social media, or use to spark a great conversation. Her first book Share Your Stuff. I'll Go First is all about opening up and forming deeper friendships but getting a little more personal.
