The most difficult part of ending a marriage is leaving behind the companionship and partnership fulfilling or not.
It is excruciating for anyone who has experienced this entrenched companionship, to abandon it or be abandoned by it, because life immediately becomes hollow -- the seat across from you at the table, vacant.
The space next to you at the party, empty. There is an absence. In the absence is where the loneliness lives. Within the loneliness, are the lessons we are meant to learn.
In order to learn the lessons, mistakes must be made. If we learn from our mistakes, we recognize the recipe for finding real love within ourselves and within our relationships.
If there is anyone who has made more mistakes over the past few years, it is me. All of my mistakes, have led me to a sound place, a calm place, a place where love has found its way in and out.

Take a solo trip. If you have kids, get a sitter. If you work, go on your day off. Drink a bottle of wine in your robe on the balcony of your hotel room. Read a good book. Go to restaurants and eat foods you would never allow yourself to eat before.
