I was tapped on the shoulder by a wonderful old friend today who I’ve not seen in two years and we stood in the middle of Waitrose clucking like a pair of ducks catching up with each other’s news in digest.
I relayed my divorce news in bite-sized chunks and found myself bullet pointing that old relationship. It was enlightening – for me – and I want to direct this Tip of the Day to anyone on the lead up to leaving, or anyone who has been treated badly and is now in the devastatingly heartbreaking early stages of the divorce process.
If you are in any doubt about where you are going/where you were heading, recount out loud the highlights of your relationship, pop the good and bad bits in a nutshell and see what your gut makes of it all. Jot your thoughts on paper if it helps but do your best to be as concise as possible about what your ex was to you.
It’s quite refreshing to listen to your own mini-analysis of what has brought you to this point. It reconfirms your recent actions and affirms you are on the right track. You are, honest.
