Social decluttering: Challenging, potentially awkward, and absolutely necessary.
If you enjoyed episode 4 of the podcast, you’ll love this conversation, in which Tracey and Cayly explore the question: Does being your authentic self across all areas of your life organically weed people out?
They talk about social decluttering as it relates to dating, family, and — once again — friendships, and offer advice on how to gracefully exit a date, a relationship, or a contentious family situation.
They’re also discussing boundaries, authenticity, and self-knowledge as essential precursors to effective social decluttering, and the power of the “Fuck Yes” rule when determining what you really want.
As always, reviews and 5-star rating are appreciated, so please consider leaving one in iTunes. Tracey and Cayly would really appreciate it!
