Letting go of your divorce story
Play • 39 min

Divorce is traumatizing. But the story you tell yourself about your ex-partner can do far more damage--to you--than the actual events. 

Long-term suffering is self-inflicted. Clinging to a painful story prevents us from moving forward and experiencing joy. Our bodies–our nervous systems–are retraumatized each time we remind ourselves what happened.

Forgiveness isn’t about condoning or excusing someone else’s behavior. Forgiveness is about acceptance–when you stop arguing that things should have been different.

You can’t change the past. But you can change your relationship with the past. Only you can release yourself from the burdens of anger and resentment. You know that, but HOW do you do that?
