We got the following request yesterday:
Hello Awkward Helpers! I am thinking that I (and maybe others?) might benefit right now from an open thread on coping with acute romantic loss and heartbreak, for, you know, group support purposes and such. I know the subject has been dealt with in previous questions, and that moderating a thread is hardly zero work for you all, so if that’s not doable right now I understand. But I am also trying to exercise self care and ask for things that I think would help me this week! Thanks, lovely folks!
I am otherwise committed for the next few days, so moderation will be spotty, but if your feelings about a breakup are more about this song or this one than this one, this thread’s for you. Talk amongst yourselves and remember the Litany Against Fear.
