Time for Fan Mail Fridays, where we'll be answering your questions and dropping some knowledge and feedback to help you kick the weekend off right. In this episode: What do you do for the friend who seems to need you as a cheerleader to pursue their life goals, but won't make any progress toward those goals on their own? You used to be the life of the party, but now social situations leave you feeling drained. Is there a way to regain emotional and mental endurance? An advanced degree doesn't have to come from an Ivy League school to demonstrate that you're serious about improving yourself. "Getting drunk and high used to help lower my inhibitions so I could enjoy things, but now I've found that, when I'm in a good place spiritually, I'm simply not so inhibited any more." The idea of a "covert contract" applies just as much to places and things as it does to people, and sometimes we even make these contracts with ourselves. Does your current romantic interest really need to know how inexperienced you are at this stage of the game? Are you enabling your lazy friend's deadbeat habits? Have any questions, comments, or stories you'd like to share with us? Drop us a line at [email protected] or even, thanks to our friends at Burner App, leave us a voicemail or text at (415) 429-1915!
