How to help your loved one through loss

Joan-Rivers
I am beyond sad at the loss of Joan Rivers. She was such a force of nature and someone I admired a ton. She did so much to impact comedy, entertainment and personal branding. She was a trailblazer and a true class act. The outpouring of love and respect for Joan online is only a fraction of what she deserves. If the world stopped spinning for a full minute, that honestly wouldn’t be enough of a tribute for this renaissance woman. My career wouldn’t be what it is today without her opening doors the way she did every second until she passed away, and I couldn’t be more grateful to her. I am in mourning over her death and it got me thinking about how you can help your loved one through a tragic loss. Going through loss as a couple can be one of the most bonding or breaking trials for a couple. Here are some tips on getting through it in as constructive way as possible. Read more

Sexless Affair or Just a Friendship?

He’s someone I work with. I didn’t think much of him at first. We talked a little but mostly just went out for lunch with other coworkers.
