Whether you’re the breakup-er or the breakup-ee, breakups are hard to process and the adjustment period almost inevitably leads to a soul-searching period. You will probably be asking yourself a lot of difficult self-reflecting questions that you’re not sure how to answer.
Luckily for you, there are people out there with answers, and if they don’t have answers, they have amazing advice that can help get you to them. You may now be single, but you’re not alone, and there are people out there who can guide you on this new journey. Many of them bestow their post-breakup wisdom through their podcasts to help get you through this challenging time, and all you need to do is press play.
