I am currently visiting a buddy of mine who is making a new start for himself. His wife has recently divorced him and given him custody of their two young sons. Their last communication wasn’t even verbal. It was in the form of the divorce papers through her lawyer. According to common friends, she has started her life over and is DATING!!
I think that over all he is doing well. His sons also seem to have adjusted to the absence of their mother (whom they haven’t seen since she left). I think that my buddy is doing well in helping them to adjust to their new life. He also has them going to therapy so that they can express their emotions to a psychologist. Although he has told them they can talk to him about anything, he feels that maybe someone who is better adept at these types of situations would be able to guide them through their confusion and anger.
One of the things that Chris has stated is when you are surrounded by loved ones (siblings, family and friends) some of the mountains become mole hills, and rather than having to climb them, we help each other stomp them out.
