No doubt about it, divorce sometimes brings out the very worst in people. Even worse, the person you are at odds with, your ex, knows you well enough to push all of your buttons if and as he or she sees fit. If there are children involved they see this bickering behavior and all too often go on to repeat it later in their own lives. Do you want to avoid the drama? There is a very simple solution: STAY SINGLE!
- Understand the motives of a narcissistic ex and be prepared for it. That could help people survive a breakup and move on with their lives.
- A divorce is often a costly step and people will follow suit in time. It is possible to have an intelligent divorce take place along the way.
- Many people actually grieve and get therapy as a result of divorce. Support is available and people will follow along with that over time too.
“While it is true that the one leaving (the leave-er) is usually less burdened by the divorce than the one being left (the leave-ee), an intelligent divorce is a possibility. Most people grieve, get some therapy or support, and sooner or later, call it a day and move on.”
