Divorce is a painful experience for everyone involved, but it is also an opportunity for change. If you can learn to work with your former spouse—despite your differences—you will have taken the first step toward building a rewarding new life. Your divorce can be a time when you learn to take total responsibility for your choices, actions and results. It is an opportunity to become proactive in being responsible for you. During this divorce process you will have the opportunity to choose contentment and responsibility or sadness, anger and blame. You have the choice of moving forward stronger or remaining wounded. You can choose courage or choose fear.
Every moment, every situation, every encounter during your divorce process provides a new choice. Every step gives you a perfect opportunity to do things differently and to produce new, more positive results. The greatest power you have is to take responsibility for responding, rather than reacting, to create an effective collaborative working relationship to dissolve your marriage partnership.
