Learning To Love with Nora McInerny

Learning To Love with Nora McInerny

March 23, 2021

Nora McInerny is an author, podcaster, fellow human, and someone who's learned to live and love with grief. She's also someone I admire a lot, and I'm not gotta lie, I fangirl pretty hard around her.

Today, we're talking about how love is both the most beautiful thing in the world and also awkward, challenging, and complex, and we're all bumbling around trying to figure it out as we go along.

If you've ever wanted to listen to two exuberant people (with ADHD?) talk about love and relationships, this is your episode.

 What you'll learn (or why you should care):

  • Why we overextend and abandon ourselves for love.
  • How we figure out relationships by "learning on each other."
  • The importance of learning to like yourself before you love yourself.
