During Tuesday’s episode of her podcast, Anna Faris Is Unqualified, one caller asked Faris for advice on how to handle her boyfriend’s coworker calling her overbearing.
The Mom star offered some advice that came from her own mother “As my mom always said, ‘Be selfish in love,’” she said, but quietly admitted, “I never listened.”
“Don’t feel afraid to feel your independence if things aren’t right,” she told the caller, who said her boyfriend had not necessarily defended her. Later, Faris talked about herself, saying, “I made that mistake, I think, a little bit, feeling like ‘I’m checking my relationship off the list’ …if that would be the final advice that I could give you, that would be know your worth, know your independence.”
Before signing off, she reminded the caller of what is most important. “Life is too short to be in relationships where you feel this isn’t fully right or somebody doesn’t have your back, or somebody doesn’t fully value you.”
Always know your worth, people.
