    Thankfully, Your Other Wells Have Water

    Parents aren’t some little nuggets to be unearthed. For the healthiest relationship with them, the trick is setting reasonable expectations and boundaries that are more sustainable than trying to change them, and learning to give yourself the thing you desperately wish they’d give you (easier said than done, we know).

    Being Alone > Feeling Alone in a Relationship

    Yes, breakups are a mindf*** on every single level. But just because your ex is having a reaction you can’t see doesn’t mean your relationship wasn’t important. It means you don’t have access to each other anymore, but you do have teammates you can turn to. (And if all else fails, you can always call upon The Block, or its trusted sidekick, The Mute.)

    Don’t Get Confused by the False Romance of Longing

    Don’t Get Confused by the False Romance of Longing

    Sorry, but we can’t have kinky sexual liberation without honest conversation and self-reflection. Remember to: define the specific yeses and nos of your relationship (polyamorous or otherwise), tend to your wound instead of telling yourself not to be hurt, and set the boundaries you need, even if that’s loving someone from afar.
