Host Sammy Jaye chats with singer/songwriter Tate McRae about the importance of finding genuine friends and cutting out toxic people. At just 17-years-old, McRae has developed a strong sense of self and an understanding of the people that she wants to surround herself with whilst balancing her life as high schooler and as a professional musician.

you'll get really like I've gotten into dark places that I'm like, I am never going back to that because you get so focused on your work and so focused on like these are my goals is what I want to do. How am I going to shape my future that you totally forget to live in the present moment? Um, that happens a lot to me, and I think I've really been trying, especially over the pandemic. Although I haven't been able to see that many people just, you know, enjoy the little moments and the little things. Uh, and then again, like balancing school is just impossible. So I think time management is key time management and self advocacy. Like the two things that have saved me. Are you a senior? I'm finishing Yeah, Grade 12 and it's been right in Canada. It's great. Yeah, No, it's I'm also terrible at time management, like I'm like. That's probably procrastinating and time management of the worst things and organizations so hard. I can't I'm terrible. It's one of those things where it's like I'll be in my statistics class, like doing my homework, and then I'll get like Wait podcast. I have to do this and it's like, Okay, okay. Back to said yes. It's this trying to compartmentalize. How do you How are you coping with that? Well, the hardest thing to is like I'm sure you understand. You get one email about your work or you get one text message and it's like your whole focus completely gets out of the zone of school that you don't want to be doing exactly. And you just you get creative, you get you know, you think about ideas, you start getting inspired and you're like, This is a totally wrong place in time to do this. And it's It's hard because especially like when you're in a different moment. Sometimes you're just like, Oh, I want to be with my friends. I want to do this Then sometimes you're like, I want to work on my career like it's It's hard to find a balance and something that I've definitely been learning to find is who are there for the right reasons who want to hear about all of that. I know you've written songs about it, but what is what has your experience been like trying to find true friends, especially balancing everything. It's definitely been a process. I feel like I struggled a lot more with this when I was younger, and I think it's because right now I just I'm very good at trusting my intuition about things and people, and I can keep people at a distance or I can make people come close to me. And I think it's just a thing that I've had to deal with for a really long time. Um, because I've always been dancing and I've always been competing, and I come back for two days and try to hang out friends, and it was like, always a struggle for me. Um, so I definitely was a loner for a lot of my life, and then I you know, I I definitely had to figure out who my circle was and who I actually wanted to spend time on. And then to add on to that, it's also to be like Who's there for the right reason? Who wants to be there to support you as a person as your high and your lows, and not just when you're at your high at your success? That's the thing and you can usually tell like where? Why are people texting me like right after I do this performance? Or why people texting me after I did this like there's certain things that you like, You know what I'm doing? Nothing. It's so obvious. It is obvious, and I think a lot of people are oblivious to that. But it is pretty obvious if you actually think about it. I've had some sneaky experiences where people try and, like, sneak in and then, yeah, it's a process. And I think it's just about, you know, trusting your gut, entrusting who's there all the time, not just part of the time. And, um, you know who sticks around and like, cut out toxic people. That's the main thing that I've learned, like you don't need it. It's just weighing you down. And I feel like friendship. When friendships kind of like distance themselves or get toxic, that can be so much worse than an actual relationship, like a breakup. That's Oh my God, that's literally the thing. So the biggest thing about my songs is that I've actually never gone through like a huge heartbreak. I've only been in talking stages, which is the worst annoying. Just like waste after. I hate whatever I hate it. Um, and then Friend's friend breakup and going through, like weird drama with your friends is probably the most emotion.
