Article on “Befriending your Ex” may be a helpful resource

“Divorce Magazine” offers an article on “Befriending your Ex” by Judith  Ruskay Rabinor, PhD.
Although I know that some of you may be shaking your heads right now and thinking, “It will never work in my situation”, there are a few reasons why I think this article may still be worth a look.

  1. Things do change with time.   Even for the most stubborn and grudge-holding person, life goes on.  New relationships and less control and connection on a daily basis between two former spouses can work wonders.
  2. Even if one person makes an internal change, it’s still a change.  What if your ex is the same old meanie, but you learn not to let it eat you up inside?  Score one for you!
  3. This article has a lot of good, practical advice.   When NOT to attempt a friendship with your ex (s/he is physically or emotionally abusive, out-of-control or dangerous);   Why you should try it (good for the kids and your own well-being, among other things); and tips for beginning the process slow and easy.
