Major life transitions significantly impact our lives, but what happens with our friendships when our lives change? Do we intentionally communicate to our friends that we’d like to continue our friendships after that change? Or, do these friendships drift apart? In this episode, Alysa talks to friends, Clio, Rissa, and Science from the podcast, The Liberal Arent’s, about how their friendship originated in college, changed post-graduation, and then was revived leading to their podcast. To help us navigate friendships after transitions, Dr. Jennifer Becker shares her research with colleagues on friendship commitment in geographically close and long-distance friendships. So, if you’re about to experience a life change, like college graduation, have a listen, chat with your friend about the life change, hatch a plan for your friendship, and get ready to turn the page to a new chapter in your relationship!
