181: Can I Be Friends With My Ex?
It's one of the cliche relationship situations that everyone seems to have a strong opinion on. Can we be friends with our ex's or members of the opposite sex? Of course we can! However, the answer is not always simple. Sometimes the answer is NO WAY! Listen to today's episode to navigate the minefield of friendship with ex-lovers and the opposite sex when you're currently in a relationship.
In this episode we discuss relationship advice topics that include:
- The important questions to ask yourself when there is a desire to be friends with an ex or member of the opposite sex.
- How the 'drug' of your former partner can send misleading signals and pull you back toward them.
- Why it's OK to be attracted to other people outside of your relationship.
- The difference between jealousy and jealous behavior.
- The monogamish movement and how to think about it.
John Kim LMFT, The Angry Therapist, pioneered the online life coaching movement seven years ago after going through a divorce which led to his total re-birth. He quickly built a devoted following of tens of thousands of fans who loved the frank and authentic insights that he freely shared on social media. John became known as an unconventional therapist who worked out of the box, and when he built out a coaching team of his own, launched an entire movement to change the way we change.
