Can You Forgive After Divorce? Yes! Here Are 7 Tips to Help!

These tips helped me forgive my ex, the woman he left me for and myself: 

  • Feeling comes later. First you need to decide to forgive. 
  • Commit to keeping your word, “I forgave.” 
  • Be in a moment and don’t jump on the past and future train of thoughts. Right now you are here, reading, driving, etc. 
  • It’s you and your child who suffer, not them. 
  • If you can’t do it for yourself, do it for your kids so they get to spend time with a happy, healthy mom vs. having to become a parent to your emotional roller coaster. 
  • Stop telling the past negative stories. 
  • Create possibilities you want.

You've got this!
