A Unique Way to Share Your Story and Contribute to the Collective Wisdom

I’ve written before about the benefits of writing letters to your ex-spouse. (6 Letters to Write After Divorce)

Well now those letters can have a greater purpose. Vicki Shemin, J.D., LICSW, ACSW, of the Boston Law Collaborative, a divorce attorney and therapist, is working on a project that combines personal narratives about divorce in the form of letters to the ex along with research about the process and impact of divorce. If you’re interested in participating, or just want more information, you can find what you need here.

I hope some of you will choose to join in the project. The more we share our own experiences, the more we can understand and improve the impact of divorce.

Thank you for sharing!

  1. Becca – Fraser Valley, BC, Canada – Undergoing a massive life change, I quit my job in 2013, moved, and five weeks later my husband left me. The phoenix process is well underway now, and I am anticipating good things in my future as I become more aligned to my authentic self.

  2. AthenaC – This is my main blog now! But I kept up all my old posts at http://athenasantics.blogspot.com/ so feel free to check those out, too. This site is just what it says - a blog about nothing in particular. I am interested in EVERYTHING - theology, science, philosophy, photography, economics, gender relations, ethics, travel ... you name it, I'm interested in it. I write because if I don't, my thoughts will spill out and assault the poor, innocent people in my life. So instead I inflict my thoughts on the internet at large, because it appears to be equipped to handle this sort of thing.

    I am totally doing this. I hope that this project will help a variety of people, from those who are wondering what to expect out of marriage (and what not to put up with!), to those who feel ashamed because they got divorced, to those who have no understanding of why someone “didn’t just stick it out” … hope it helps some people!

  4. I’ve started multiple letters to my ex-husband, never with the intention of actually giving them to him. I intend to participate in this as well!
