My Divorce Journal : A Guided Path to Moving Forward
Anyone whose marriage or common-law relationship has ended usually feels bewildered and adrift. "Just what on earth happened to me and how can I make sure it doesn't happen again?" they wonder. Both authors have personally experienced divorce and its repercussions and have gone on to find love again. Building on David's legal knowledge and Pat's personal experiences, they look at divorce from both sides of the desk: a divorce lawyer seated opposite a distraught client.
This book walks through the five recovery stages that follow relationship breakdown: reacting to upheaval, managing logistics, taking care of your children, navigating your feelings, and moving forward.
Pairing My Divorce Journal with a blank writing journal creates a road map to your new, fulfilling future. By exploring your pain, yearnings, and priorities with refreshing candour, your guided path to moving forward will come into focus. The written exercises will keep you grounded and engaged during this exhilarating process. The worksheets you periodically complete will show how much you've already accomplished.
