There aren’t many worse feelings in the world than that of a broken heart.

Breakups suck - they’re often messy, painful, and disorientating. And yet, we all experience heartbreak at some time in our lives. So why isn’t heartbreak seen as a real form of grief, instead relegated to montage sequences in film where characters mope around the house, eating ice cream straight from the tub?

Journalist and podcaster Jessie Stephens has experienced more than her fair share of heartbreak, which moved her to write a non-fiction book called Heartsick: Three Stories about Love and Loss, and what Happens in Between. It’s a fascinating, and devastating read - and intrigued me so much I wanted to get Jessie on the podcast, to ask, what shall we do about heartbreak?

Heartsick by Jessie Stephens is out now. You can find Jessie on Instagram @jessiestephens90.
