Took me a while to come to this conclusion but, I'm forging forward now. I have been writing a lot on Quora lately and that has been really great enjoyable and a good method for me to get my thoughts onto virtual paper. This has always been a bit of a challenge for me vs. speaking with people directly.
The book will be focused on collaborative divorce and will incorporate both personal experience as well as that of others. The goal is to provide guidance to those who are looking to end their marriage while retaining their sanity and respect for one another.
The details are still a bit fluid but, there will be more to share regarding this shortly.
I'm also actively seeking out contributors for this book. If you would like to be considered for inclusion and if you have a relevant story you want to share or know of someone that would be good to feature in this book, please let me know. Could be something as simple as a quote...we could do an interview...whatever works best.
The way to stay up-to-date is to sign up on my contact page and I will make sure that you don't miss out when a more concrete timeline gets put in place.
We can't watch a tree grow or see how children change and learn on a daily basis. When things happen slowly, we just see the day to day and don't see the small increments that happen all the time. Go back and watch a video or look at some pictures of a child in your life even from just one year ago. They often barely seem like the same person.
This same thing happens with relationships. The really big problems that relationships face rarely just happen over night. Once a relationship or a marriage gets to a bad place, something has been ignored or swept under the rug for too long. Perhaps it's mutual communication that needs improvement. Perhaps you are taking each other for granted. Maybe there are intimacy issues. Perhaps there are external pressures on the relationship that neither of you is addressing, dealing with or seeking compromises on. All this adds up and one day you come to the realization that you are miserable.
Don't ignore your inner voice. Don't let things fester in the hope that they will pass. Address the things that make you upset or concerned. It's not always easy to do but, there is a clear benefit to knowing that you and your partner both realize there is an issue. Without that, there can be no progress. When you commit to this level of openness you make it that much more difficult to wind up on that path to being disillusioned and dissatisfied with your relationships and your life.
