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.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
