The Prison of Travel

A few months ago, Josh and I did an episode of our podcast, Overrated/Underrated, about what we like and don’t like about travel.

Plenty of sitcoms and movies had prepared me for breakups between romantic partners, maybe even between friends. But nothing I’ve ever experienced has prepared me for my breakup with my therapist. My office is moving to a building farther away from … Continue reading Breaking Up with My Therapist
