New Perspectives

How many times have well meaning friends or family members suggested it was time to get over your break up and start moving on? Or start dating? While I don’t have the answer to that question, the reality is that even once is too many. Until you’ve walked in somebody else’s shoes, it is certainly not our place to even remotely suggest when it’s time to move on.
