Let me give you a familiar situation:
You’ve just met someone, and you really like their knowledge on X, or the Y things that they’ve done, or the Z books that they’ve read. There is, however, a problem. They are don’t share your values. Or they oppose you philosophically. Or they’re just a difficult person to be around.
You’d love to be friends for some reasons, but you also dread to be for others. What do you do?
The concept of allies to the rescue!
In this podcast I talk about the difference between friends and allies (or, more specifically: accidental allies, chosen allies, friends, close friends, romantic partners and co-parents), and how you can use this knowledge to enable you to have relationships with otherwise complicated people, streamline your existing relationships and be able to avoid, guilt-free, going to places where you don’t want to go.
This episode is the first of The Art of Stress-Free Relationships series, where I look into common sources of stress and complications in relationships, and give you the ideas and steps that will make your relationships much more enjoyable (perhaps even…amazing?)
