What to Divorce When You are Divorcing: The Words “I Feel”

Just in case you are thinking you don’t have to move on after your divorce because “you don’t feel like” doing the things that need to be done to make that happen, let me try to change your mind. When teaching divorce workshops, I’ll often ask the women in attendance who have children to raise their hands if they ever had to get up in the middle of the night to care for a crying baby and most of the hands in the room will go up.
And then I ask them to raise their hand if they waited until they “felt” like tending to the baby prior to changing their diapers or giving them a bottle? Surprise! Surprise! No one ever raises their hand. Why? Mature adults don’t ask themselves “How do I feel?” before taking necessary action. They ask, “Does this need to be done?” and if the answer is “yes” they do it regardless of how they feel.
