Realize that while the breakup was traumatic, you can go forward and move into the new life that you want. Please send this article to anyone you think it would help.

After a breakup, it’s so easy to feel depressed and alone. It’s important to take matters into your own hands and pull yourself back together as quickly as possible. Realize that while it was traumatic, you can go forward and move into the new life that you want.

You don’t want to make the same mistakes again that you made in your last relationship, so you have to think about what went wrong.

New Huffington Post Article

Category : Huffington Post

If you or someone you know is getting a divorce, my latest article for The Huffington Post covers 5 positive things that come out of a first marriage:

Almost everybody I’ve come across who’s over 50 and was going through their first divorce said adamantly, “I will never get married again.” A few years later, I’ve been to the weddings of many of those people. After you’ve been through a divorce, it takes a lot of soul searching to make any post-divorce relationship a permanent one. However, many people seem to be willing to take that step. Having been married once before, you gain a lot of experience and, hopefully, spent some time working on yourself to find out what went wrong so that you can make the new marriage positive. By the way, when I got divorced I said I would never marry again. The second time has been the charm for me!

Category : Holidays, Huffington Post

Thanksgiving Day

I wrote an article for The Huffington Post about divorce and Thanksgiving. If you’re newly divorced, it may be helpful. Hope you enjoy it!:

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what you’re thankful for this year. If you’re newly divorced, you’re probably thankful to be free and moving on. However, the holidays can still be a difficult time for anybody who has been recently divorced. In fact, Thanksgiving kicks off the string of holidays that I like to refer to as “the big four” — Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and Valentine’s Day.

My Article About “Enough Said” in The Huffington Post

Category : Huffington Post, Movies

My latest article for the Huffington Post was just put online. It’s entitled “What the Movie Enough Said Tells Us About Exes and Relationships.” Here is some of the article:

The movie Enough Said is the perfect example of what is right for one person may not be right for someone else.
James Gandolfini plays Albert. His character is a little quirky, but warm and loving. Catherine Keener plays his ex, a poet named Marianne. Her character is more brittle, judgmental and cold. A massage therapist named Eva, played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, meets exes Albert and Marianne separately at the same party. Eva doesn’t realize the connection between them as she begins to date Albert and simultaneously is hired by Marianne to give her massages.

My latest Huffington Post article is up. It’s entitled, “Should You Have Divorced Earlier?” With Michael Douglas in the press recently talking about how he probably should have ended his marriage to Diandra earlier, it brings up an important question. Here is the article:

Michael Douglas told the press recently that he should have ended his first marriage sooner than he did.  Douglas said, “I know I’m going to get into trouble here. I have nothing against her and in fact I’m very fond of my first wife.  But we should have ended that marriage eight or 10 years earlier.”  He was married to Diandra for 23 years.
