I sat down with my two best friends ( and Sally Chen) and with my boyfriend (Addison Chen)! Michelle has been friends with me since high school (over 11 years now), Sally has been friends with me since college (over 8 years), and Addison an I have been together for over 4 years. Each come with a different perspective on our relationships with each other as people grow and develop, and while I wanted to do this in person, Addison and I did get COVID19 during the December 2021 holiday break, so we had to do this virtually instead!
I sit down with two my closest friends, Michelle Lam and Sally Chen, as we recount our friendship and how it came to be. We built very deep relationships with each other where we know what makes each other tick, what our tendencies are, and even the uglies with our demons with each other. We are 100% honest and do NOT put in any “sugar fluff,” so this is a fun episode to listen to!
A friend of mine once said I had a bad habit of just listening. I also need to try to understand. This applies to concepts and people. You truly learn the complexities when you listen to understand instead of listening to listen! This is what it takes to be an active and great listener.
