Divorce can be a time of empowerment and growth. When experienced from that mindset, it becomes possible to create a peaceful divorce and to not only survive the experience, but to thrive as well!

A peaceful divorce can create a win-win experience for you, your family and your present and future relationships!

I formed this group for us to discuss our journey and help each other work towards as amicable a divorce as possible.


Group discussion sample: How do you have a peaceful divorce?

"What a good question!!! While I have not officically entered into the divorce process yet, I'm currently separated, have been for the past 8 months with divorce as the goal...trying to go through this peacfully is definetly a challenge at times! For me, I have two young children and I am DETERMINED not let this divorce be messy or adversely affect them in ways that it doesn't need to. So, when I'm feeling angry and pissed off at my husband, I try to find healthy ways to release that before I approach him. So that when we do have the big conversations I'm not coming from a place of freash anger/resentment or whatever! For me, keeping my kids in front and my focus on them helps me to put things in perspective. Yes, I'm angry and sad and I feel betrayed and I'm devasted...but taking that out in legal terms or through vicious conversations is not worth it to me. At the end of the day, I want to be able to say that I have done the "right thing" for myself, I've focused my energy where it needs to be and I want to be able to find peace in that."

"For me I've able to do this by focusing on my son and knowing that nothing good will come from arguing...we can argue until the cows come the end what do you have? Nothing. It just creates more anger...not healing. It is NOT easy...nor does it mean to not acknowledge your feelings. Divorce is of the worse things I have gone through...I am trying my best to get through and go on with my life. I refuse to let this ruin the rest of my life. Best of luck to you."

    Serenity: Life is full of adventure and does not end if you are divorced. Though divorce is painful but we need to move on and make life after divorce more happier than before. I am amazed to see some strong personalities here and how they surpass the greatest challenge of their lives.
    Here are my ways of forgetting the painful past and creating a peaceful divorce through divorce guide:
    1. Spend more time on your children.
    2. Spend time on improving yourself.
    3. Give more love to your children and to yourself.
    4. Travel and see the beauty outside your comfort zone.
    5. Make friends that has a good influence on you.
    6. Don't hate your ex-husband and forgive him to release the hurts and pains so that you can move on peacefully.
    7. Learn from your past mistakes.
