Joe Herzanek author of Why Don’t They Just Quit, discusses detachment on this weeks show.
How do you know when to detach?
How do I know what to say and do (and what NOT to say and do)?
When to let that person back into your life?
What if children are involved?
What if they hurt themself?
What if they hurt someone else?
What if I lose this relationship?
What if they just “can’t” quit?
