Podcast #68: Am I in a Codependent Friendship?

We’re starting off this week’s episode with a reminder to apply for student loan forgiveness if you’re eligible. The application is officially live! Then, Jess and Laura give a few movie and TV recommendations before getting into the main topic (00:19:16).

Let’s talk about codependent friendships. What is this type of toxic friendship, and why are they so harmful and prevalent in the years immediately following college graduation?

Laura and Jess share examples from their experiences in codependent friendships, the signs of this relationship, why they’re one-sided, and give some tips on how to get out of that situation if you’re currently dealing with this.
