When old friends and family drop away after a divorce.

You lose a lot of friends during and after a divorce, even if you are discrete and polite about everyone involved.


Was speaking with my Home Teachers about this months message this week.

A bit of it was perseverance, carry on carrying on, eye’s on the prize stuff.

It occurred to me just now¬†that a dollop of folks have said “I’m here for you”, “You can count on me”, “Anything you need” and others just went to complete radio silence after the incident 2.5 years ago.

I’ve just realised I feel a little bit of compassion mixed in with the apathy I feel toward them.

The disappointment has faded, the emotional resilience is increased.

I just feel sad for them that they didn’t choose to come along on this amazing journey.

They missed out.
