When I was young I regularly heard the expression ‘What’s the worst that can happen?’ used as an encouragement to get me to try something new.
During a divorce it pays to remember this phrase, because, ultimately what is the worst that can happen?
You could lose out on the lion’s share of your property. You could lose some of your friends. You will get to the end of it and I guarantee you will be a changed person.
It is up to you to decide if you are going to be a better person, a more tolerant person, a more loving person, or if the pain of divorce, whether you left or were left, is going to make you less trusting, more bitter and a more grumpy person.
Take positive action to learn from the situation you are in. Listen more, think harder about what matters to you and when you are ready to get back into the saddle you will find a more fulfilling relationship awaits.
