Jade rejects Sarah’s flowers. Sarah talks about why calling your ex petty names on a piece of paper feels really good, and offers a heinously long list of names she uses. The pair discuss why women aren’t ‘supposed’ to be angry, and why anger is actually perfectly healthy.
Jade answers a listener question about how to deal with a mate that keeps going back to their ‘cunt of an ex’. Sarah talks about domestic violence, and why it’s important to have a proper escape plan and the support of a professional, if you’re going to leave an abusive man.*
A heads up to our listeners who have experienced domestic abuse – this episode contains subject matter that may be distressing. Skip it if you’re not ready to go there.
