Today’s conversation is really powerful for anyone in an intimate relationship who is wondering if it’s the right one to stay in. My friend Jen has been through an incredible healing journey this year after leaving a very public relationship of 4 and a half years. I have been really excited to hear her story and share it with you because relationships are one of the most powerful and challenging parts of life to navigate.
