Here’s the bald truth: You can follow every single thing we teach here at An Uncluttered Life and still fail to reach your lifestyle goals if you don’t have the one magic ingredient:
Healthy, supportive relationships.
And the other hard truth is that as we get older, we don’t often pay as much attention to our relationships as we used to. Work, romantic relationships, and family take precedence, and our friendships can start to drift and turn.
Even the strongest friendships change over time. If you aren’t paying close attention, it’s easy to wake up one day and wonder why you were ever friends with that person in the first place. You might also be on other side of the equation wondering why your friend has suddenly turned on you.
Especially when you create great change in your life, you’ll discover changes in your friendships. This is not necessarily a bad thing, as growing together with someone you love is a beautiful thing. But if you aren’t feeling the gentle strains of “Wind Beneath My Wings” playing in the background when you hang out with certain friends, it’s time to unclutter.
In today’s episode, you’ll learn the signs that your friendship is turning toxic. In the free resource guide, you’ll discover how to rebalance the friendships you want to save in 3 steps.
