Don’t Let Your Brain Run Loose: Creating Solid Friendship Beliefs with Sarah Siegert | EP84

Don’t Let Your Brain Run Loose: Creating Solid Friendship Beliefs with Sarah Siegert, @friendships.abroad - Friendship IRL Podcast, Episode 84

Podcast Description

What are your friendship beliefs? What stories do you tell yourself about your friendships?

Today’s episode might be one of the most important I’ve ever recorded because it gets at the heart of so many people’s struggles: core beliefs about friendship.

Here, I’m joined by Sarah Siegert, founder of Friendships Abroad. Inspired by her own experience moving from Hamburg to London, Sarah is a friendship coach who helps people living abroad create meaningful connections and overcome their loneliness. 

As Sarah points out in today’s episode, our relationships start with us. If we want healthy friendships, we have to be willing to do the inner work first. 

In this episode you’ll hear about:

  • Sarah’s experience moving from Germany to London in 2019 and her struggles to fit in within a whole new country
  • Doing the inner work and training our brains to see the similarities between each other instead of the differences
  • Creating new friendship habits and developing close relationships within a friendship group
  • Introverts vs. extroverts, recharging your social batteries, and being intentional about what you’re looking for in friendships

Hi. I'm Alex.

I'm just a gal who cares deeply about community + friendship. Why? Well, I didn't have a healthy support system growing up.

So I built one... out of friends. I believe a healthy support system is the ultimate self-care.
