The Friendship Series: Our Recap and Conclusion
with Tessa and Amir
(Season 3 | Episode 107)
[TESSA & AMIR| Amir and I wrap up this series with joy – we bring our series to a close with so so many resources for you. Books, articles, podcasts. We’re very proud of our mini-series on friendship, and in particular, this specific episode.
We Start with a Quote
“I’ve learned it’s ok to recognize that self-worth comes wrapped in vulnerability. And that what we share as humans on this earth is the impulse to strive for better always, and no matter what. We become bolder in brightness. If you know your light you know yourself. You know that your story is an honest way. In my experience, this type of self-knowledge builds confidence which in turn breeds calmness and an ability to maintain perspective, which leads finally to being able to connect meaningfully with others. And this to me is the bedrock of all things.
One light feeds another. One strong family lends strength to more. One engaged community can ignite those around it. This is the power of the light we carry.”
– Michele Obama
We don’t want to give it all away, but we touch upon a book that greatly influenced Amir, Adam Grant’s “Think Again.” We bring up a great article recently published in the Wall Street Journal about friendships in older life, we talk about Michele Obama and Esther Perel. And we even have a guest quote about hobbies and friendship in this one. A lot to digest and enjoy.
So let’s have at it, as we conclude our mini-series on friendship.
