On retreating and re-emerging

In this episode, host Madeleine Dore asks: how can we better understand the ebbs and flows we experience in our social lives? There are times we might feel open to connections and new friendships, and other times where we feel more closed or our social battery runs low. Taking lessons from lobsters and seasons, to a year of living as an extrovert, this episode explores how we can honour both sides in ourselves and be there for others.  To read a summary and delve deeper into the theme, visit  www.asociallifewithfriends.com and become a paid supporter of the podcast.
