We all spend a lot of time on our cell phones. Yesterday, while going to my “favorites,” I realized there’s another ritual that is dramatic and quite serious. This Divorce Ritual is called “Not a ‘Favorite’ Any Longer” and it involves deleting your ex from your list of favorites on your phone. While it only takes you one second to hit the delete button, it can take a long time to finally get to this point. How many times have you looked at that name and dialed it? As the divorce proceeded, how many times did you look at that name and feel really sad, mad and angry? Delete it! Imagine how healing this can be. You don’t have to open your phone and see your ex’s name. Obviously, they’re not your “favorite” any longer, so get rid of them and find a new favorite friend to take their place!
I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed for an episode of AOL’s hit series “You’ve Got.” The series has featured many notable guests, including Matt Damon, Edward Norton, Jessica Alba, Glenn Close, Bette Midler and Dan Rather, among many others. On this episode, I discuss my new book “The Divorce Ritual” and the importance of keeping your spirits up during and after a divorce.
