We’re continuing to the conversation about identity and motherhood. And this month we’re digging into specifically how your support system and your village (or lack thereof) affects your identity as a mom.
Do you ever look around as a mom and think “gosh, everyone else has so many friends and I don’t? I’m definitely the odd mom out.”
Well, guess what? You aren’t alone if you said ‘yes’. It’s actually more common than you may think.
So what do we do about it?
Why does it seem so hard to make friends as an adult?
Well, that’s exactly what I talk about with my guest on this episode, Emily Siegel.
Emily is the host of The Connected Mom Life podcast (formerly The Corporate Mom Life podcast) among the many hats that she wears.
Emily offers so many tips, encouragement, and practical takeaways to grow your circle of friends (aka, your village).
This conversation is so very timely to talk about connecting with people since it’s been a loooooong five or so months of life with Covid around and not being able to connect with anyone like we used to.
Get out a pen and paper to take notes when you listen to this one!
