It’s a touchy topic that’s been in the zeitgeist for the last couple of years – either spurred by our general societal upheaval and the change it’s bringing about within people, something less, or something even more – friend break ups are sometimes a part of life. And they can be even more painful than breaking things off in a romantic relationship. There’s often more time invested and thus, more depth. More experience and trust.

K+L drop in for today’s solo episode to discuss this very thing. When do you know it’s time to break up with a friend? What are the signs, both within yourself and between the two of you, that might be clues that something is off? And, most importantly, how do you talk about it with them? Or, do you at all?

We can all agree at this point in our evolution that toxicity and rudeness are not the answers. So, how do we approach this change with grace? With compassion and understanding? Tune in to get real life advice from these two open hearts.

We also talk about:

  • How do you know when it's time to break up with a friend?
  • Listening to your body’s clues
  • Having a conversation vs. letting it dissolve 
  • What might cause a friendship breakup?
  • Feeling your emotions
