In ‘Life Quakes’, our viewer’s high school bestie has been hanging with a new group and it stings. She’s seeing all the fun on social media and doesn’t know how to bring it up without sounding needy. Hosts Patricia Wu, Jessica Reyes, and guest therapist Joann ‘JoJo’ Venant discuss how it’s normal for friendships to change.

Friendships change, it’s normal

Our twenties are a time of significant personal growth, which can naturally impact our friendships.

Consider your friend’s side

Before feeling hurt, try to understand if your friend is simply expanding their social circle or if there’s a deeper reason for the change.

Communicate with “I” statements

Expressing your feelings directly but without blame is key. Try saying something like, “I feel a little left out when I see you having fun with your new friends on social media. Would it be cool if I tagged along sometimes?”
