    This book is one of my favorite books. I started working on “don’t take anything personally” around 10 years ago. It seems so simple. Love your post. 😀

  2. I enjoyed your article and please keep sharing your thoughts/insights/opinions at

    Having gone through a divorce, of a marriage of 18+ years, time does not heal all wounds. That both of us played a role in the deterioration. That if I could go back in time I would to change/improve many aspects of our relationship.

    Regrets are the heaviest burdens to carry.

    Thank you again.

He never intended or planned on hurting but in his idiotic journey that is what happened. This has helped me immensely :).

  7. Don Miguel Ruiz, has open my eye’s and changed my view on my truth. His books were the kick off to my recovery as a healthy person, it has taken me a year to see everything clearly..I want to give his book to every woman I know..

  8. Since I am so early in to a separation and still hurting so badly I am lookng for anything that will give me some direction through the quagmire. Added the book to my next Amazon purchase, thanks.

    • Quagmire. What a word for such a difficult time. The beginning is hard. Gather everything you can to act as a life preserver at this point – words, embraces, a peaceful moment. Surround yourself with what makes you feel understood and accepted and loved. I am so sorry that you are on this journey. May 2014 be the year of your rebirth. Hugs to you:)
