2 thoughts on “From Divorce to Happiness: March Reading List”
I can relate to the article on divorce being a good thing. As a gen Xer, I experienced the pain of divorce when my parents separated, and I think a lot of us judgemental adults think our parents could have worked it out (mine admitted as much to me later). Which made me adamant that I would NEVER divorce, no matter what. This belief, while good on paper kept me in an emotionally abusive relationship, and you can read on my blog how much I put up with in the name of working it out.
Thank you for posting it.
