Happy 2019 loves!! On this very first episode of the year I decided to share space with my friend Tiffany who also identifies as a philosopher.

And this AMAZING conversation we shared together!
Sharing raw emotions around how messy an ending can be & giving context for why we can’t just tell people to “move on to the next thing” without supporting them with space to grieve the thing they are leaving behind.
