Thanks Carol for your tips on recovery. I'm far from being over my former husband's betrayal but I am working on becoming a whole person without a man and I'm determined to feel happiness again.



Those life lessons are, indeed, useful to anyone going through divorce. But beyond divorce, they are very useful guidance on how to live a good life.

My guess is that there would be fewer stress related heart attacks and less physical violence if more people embraced the notion of forgiving to heal yourself.

Seeing yourself as complete, avoiding the role of victim, and asking for what you want are good practices for anyone in relationship. (And except for the few who are meditating alone in a cave somewhere, that would be all of us. We all are in work, family, romantic, or other kinds of relationships.)

Recognizing that closure is important helps us move from childhood to adulthood and adulthood to old age. It also helps us manage ourselves through all of the disappointments and problems that are part and parcel of being in human form.

And living in the present makes it all worthwhile.

Thanks for these tips to live by.
