Are Your Friendships Draining or Charging You? with Luvvie Ajayi Jones
Play • 50 min

1. How do we build a squad of friends–people we can trust our truth and imperfection with, and who take responsibility for one another’s care?

2. How to know when it’s time to let a friendship go–and how we release one another without the hard feelings.  

3. Why when we have a problem trusting others, it sometimes has to do with a lack of trust in ourselves.   

4. Why Luvvie says her friends have rewired her brain, and answers the question: Can Black and white women really be friends?
