I am not divorced but I love how the writer empowered herself and took charge of her own narrative during this difficult time. Her approach is logical but also therapeutical. Maybe it’s not a piece of writing you end up keeping but the exercise of it could bring so much clarity and closure. What do you think? What other advice would you give to those managing divorce in their lives?
I also (knock on wood) am not divorced, but there are some times when I wonder - what would that look like and are there “best” ways to manage such a (for lack of a better word) ordeal. Her pragmatic approach about the exercise reminds me of something I actually do sometimes, when I action out the thoughts in my head, navigating marriage, from finances to stance on kids, religion - the light stuff, haha. It is a good exercise. A pragmatic one my accountant just reminded me of - it’s not unreasonable to have your own bank accounts.
