Subscribe Now: Apple Podcasts / Spotify / Google Podcasts Friday Fix: Episode 128 I thought it would be fun to answer your questions on the podcast this week. I put out the call on social media to ask me anything you want. And you certainly answered! It’s been fun sifting through your questions and hearing your comments. To my surprise, the vast majority of your questions centered around one thing—relationship issues. And most of them weren’t contained to romantic relationships. Instead, you wanted to know how to set better boundaries, how to deal with people who don’t meet your expectations, and how to address communication difficulties. So those are some of the things we talk about on today’s show. They’re great questions because the people around you affect your mental strength. While you can’t change other people, you can certainly influence them. You can also choose how you respond to them. If I didn’t answer your question today, stay tuned. I titled this episode "Part 1" because I suspect we’ll be doing more "Ask Me Anything" episodes in the future.
