Life often presents us with opportunities to revisit situations. In this episode we give you some tips to know when you should say yes to a reunion invitation, or leave an old thing in the past.

Great, relatable information!

The hosts are not only intelligent and wise, they are great conversationalists. They make each episode fun to listen to, even when the topics are deep. They provide practical tips and information during each episode, whether they have an expert as a guest or it’s just them two of them. It’s one of my favorite podcasts! Keep up the good work!
