Trust how you feel - don't think. Thinking gets you into trouble. This is the best advice I can give.

March 27th, 2014, 9am

It was -6.1°C. The breeze was gentle.

A friend called the other day. He was distraught and seeking direction on whether to end his long-term relationship. He knows I am recently divorced and it was my decision to end it after 10 years of marriage and 3 children. I am no expert in relationships but experience is a brutal teacher.

He already knew the answer. I think he wanted permission to trust his emotions, to validate his decision to walk away.

I’ve learned to trust my emotions. It’s the only thing that’s real. It’s truth. I can strip away all the nonsense and stare into myself with a clear conscious - with honesty. I am free.

I truly hope for him and her. We all deserve love.
