How do you make new friends as an adult? Who can you be your full authentic self around? How do you handle a friendship breakup? And how much work do you have to put into your friendships as an adult? Valeria attempts to tackle these questions with help from female friendship coach and educator, Danielle Bayard Jackson, and her best friend of fourteen years, Mary B. Sharon. While romantic relationships often take priority in our culture, this episode turns the spotlight on the people who help you get through life: your friends!
