We visit the doctor, we eat right (at least, sometimes), we Google our symptoms and then fret when WebMD inevitably tells us we’re dying.  But when we think about health, we do so only as it relates to our bodies.

Sometimes it succeeds, but other times friendship should never be considered in the first place. A friend of mine came to me with a question that many people have pondered: Should you be friends with your ex? Her situation was one that happens a lot: girl likes boy, boy is unsure how he feels, boy asks girl to hang out platonically.  "Let's be friends" is a common statement, uttered by the party doing the dumping, often [...]

But, how do you know when to say goodbye and when to give things another try? The truth is, deciding whether or not to get back together with [...]

By |2021-03-30T22:38:51+00:00January 2nd, 2017|

Just because it's the right thing to do doesn't mean it's painless. You may be a person who can benefit from learning how to break up with someone. It's not that you go about the breakup the wrong way—you don't send a text message or send a singing telegram that ends with "It's been fun but now we're done."
