By Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus ·

In this episode of The Minimalists Podcast, Joshua and Ryan talk about our desire for friendship that leads us to accumulate scores of friends, acquaintances, coworkers, partners, lovers, companions, contacts, colleagues, and associates; our realization that relationship clutter is getting in the way of loving, meaningful connections; and they answer the following questions:

  • Is it loving to let go?
  • How can I stop feeling pressured to keep up with so many connections?
  • I’ve never struggled to declutter my “friends” on social media when they no longer have a meaningful place in my life, but how do I explain their removal when they ask me about it without hurting their feelings?
  • What does a truly healthy friendship look like?
  • How do we ensure mutual respect in a relationship?
  • How do we appropriately apply attention in a relationship?
  • How do you define “toxic relationship”?
