  • Time to Say Goodbye

    In her ground-breaking book On Death and Dying, the Swiss-American psychiatrist Elisabeth Kubler-Ross claims that “people in mourning have to come to grips with death before they can live again”, and dealing with a break-up is no different.

In this piece, we’re not talking about burning everything that once belonged to your ex, sending angry text messages, having a big cry or dancing the pain away (though the last bit sounds fun).
