How Making Friends Can Help You Make the Big Life Choices with Deasha Waddup
Play • 56 min
Making friends is one area in life where you just need to go out there and do it.

It might involve being a little uncomfortable. It takes time and practice to get used to navigating these situations – and no episode illustrates this better than this one.

Today’s guest, Deasha, has made and maintained friendships with people all over the world. She’s done it so many times, she trusts that when she goes out and does what she wants to do, she’s going to meet people while doing it. This confidence gives her the power to travel solo and make the big life choices.

I listened to today’s episode and was inspired to put myself out there a little bit more. I hope you feel the same way, and maybe decide to take a small action or two in your life – to be a little uncomfortable, and build this muscle that is making new connections.

In this episode you’ll hear about:

  • Deasha’s experiences meeting people online and turning them into real friends, and, her friendship advice
  • Being friends with somebody for only a season of life, and being okay with falling out – plus, putting yourself in spaces where you’ll meet the kind of people you want to meet
  • Consistency in friendship and how to remove the friendship “administrative” work by creating recurring gatherings
  • The power of spending more time thinking about what could go RIGHT vs. what could go wrong – and the skills you gain when things DO go wrong
  • How the skill of making friends can give you the confidence to make the big life choices, from big travels and big moves to trying new things
