Today’s guest is Sara Kuburic. Sara is an existential psychotherapist, she’s a writer, she’s a consultant and a columnist for USA Today. Many of you may know her as Millennial.Therapist on Instagram, and this is her second time on the podcast. And what I love about Sara’s content is that she takes complex issues such as mental health and relationships and creates content that’s easily digestible, it’s simple and easy for people to understand.   

We talk about the elements that should coexist to make a relationship work, how our relationships impact our mental health, why we should invest in ourselves more before we date again, why it isn’t necessary to apologize for a failed relationship, and so much more!
