In this OPEN(HEART) episode of the OPENHOUSE Podcast, we discuss all things friends, the psychology of enablers and the less than healthy friendships that we love.

We take a look at this through the lens of the recent finale of Euphoria and the very special, sweet and sad situation that we all got to experience alongside the captivating characters of Rue and Elliott.

***SPOILER ALERT*** If you haven’t watched the finale of Euphoria yet, then skip this episode and come back to it later!

Louise Rumball & Dr Tari Mack also go deeper into:

⇢ Rue & Elliot and why their friendship worked initially, and why he ultimately showed true friendship through his actions later on in the series;

⇢ What is an enabler + the psychology behind enabling;

⇢ Why do we enable others;

⇢ How to broach a friendship that isn’t feeling good;

⇢ Understanding how to break the cycle of a less than healthy friendship; and

⇢ How to deal with the anger of another person as you break the cycle.
