The Taste of Glass on Your Tongue

Coming to an agreement with someone you have come to _________ (distrust, despise, question, worry over, feel suspicious of, and/or wonder how you ever fell in love with years ago) is a lot to ask. This is especially so if you find yourself having to attend to the house and the kids and the grocery shopping and the paycheck.

People just want it to be over–yesterday. People carry resentment and contempt rooted in betrayal and anger. People are so fragile they feel like the slightest change could crush them. People exhausted from trying.

When given the choice, many would choose a mouthful of glass over trying to come to terms on important matters in a mediation.

Why? Because it’s hard and because no one goes into marriage thinking: “You know, some day when we get divorced, I know we’ll be super kind and compassionate to each other so the process is just as rewarding as registering for this lovely, agreed-upon china pattern.”

I know.

And because I get it, I give you room to speak your peace before rushing to resolution

And because I’ve seen it, I know that everyone’s process unfolds at their rate and particular to them.

And, because I know, I offer kindness and compassion.
