How to find Mom Friends and Build Community

by Cara Harvey

A Purpose Driven Mom Podcast

Episode 44

How do we find other mom friends? And when we do find them, how do we make the time to maintain our friendships? And what if we try to make other mom friends and things are not jiving?

Let’s start with permission … 

It’s okay to “friend date”, to see if you connect with another mom. It’s okay that if you don’t click that you can let that friendship go without guilt.

How do you know if it’s time to let go …

If you find that there are people that drag you down. That when you leave their presence you feel unmotivated, lazy, discouraged, bad about yourself, and guilted into things. This is a huge red flag to let that friendship go without guilt.

Jim Rohn said “You are the average of the five people that you spend the most of your time with.”

It is hard and a sacrifice to take the time to spend intentional time with other mom friends. Being with other people is what we were made for. It’s important. Make a plan, make a date to get together with your friends, the ones that really matter, the ones that when you leave them you feel filled up.

Let’s dive into all this and the WHY having mom friends is super important. As well as how to find mom friends online … the right way!
