Compassion for fellow travellers

Divorce and separation are traumatic events and often leave people emotionally and financially damaged. Often custody and property settlements are unfair and a life time of hope and work is destroyed. It’s understandable that people are distressed, angry and bitter and that they are desperately searching for reasons.

If someone has recently divorced they need our support and a friendly ear, not to be told that “there are two sides” or generally confronted over what they say while grieving and angry. Most of us have been there or will go there. We need to show compassion and empathy, not provide pretentious advice.

So….to all those suffering… please accept a cyber-hug!
