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.
