A friend of mine just broke up with her boyfriend of 2.5 years. Amazingly, I’ve been quite supportive and not my usual tough love kinda self. If you’ve read any of my advice posts in the past you’ll wonder if I’m channelling Mother Teresa. The truth is, I can sympathize with her because I was in the same boat a few years ago. I offered her the advice I would have liked to get and while she didn’t exactly take it, she agreed that it is something she should explore… I think she already knew what to do and just needed a swift kick in the ass. Which I’m really good at providing.
