Isn’t it funny how anyone dealing with a breakup manages to get all sorts of random advice — from friends, strangers, memes, you name it. And often times the advice is simply conflicting. Of course, it’s not like you NEED the advice — you are so much smarter than that (wink)! That is until you find yourself utterly lost in a whirlpool of thoughts. Which if unresolved can end up hurting you more than you realise.
And that’s when you know you need a good pain purohit — someone who will empathise with your pain and not judge you for the way you are processing your feelings.
I got one such pain purohit for all my fam for Episode 2 of our relationship series, How I Dealt With It. Avani Parekh is a trained counsellor who started Love Doctor, a platform to get answers to all your questions about relationships. It was later acquired by Sheroes.in. Avani now works for Facebook in Singapore.
Why I picked Avani was because she is empathetic, smart, funny and very rational when it comes to giving advice. I myself took some advice from her which I shall not disclose here!
The questions, meanwhile, that I posed to her were sent to me by listeners and interviewees. While some came simply through DMs. So what are you waiting for? Grab that headphone, and give it a listen!
