I know many people in the San Francisco area are struggling with divorce in all its difficult phases and have personally found it hard to find the support needed without paying lots of money to a lawyer, coach or therapist who is whose business it is to "supporting us". As a result, I have decided to start a free group for real people who to help each other by meeting and discussing their challenges in a convenient, safe and neutral space with good and free street parking. Whether you have decided to divorce, are in the middle of the process or on "the other side" trying to rebuild a new life it is still one of the hardest things to face in life. After all, your friends and family can only hear so much of it and want you to "get over it" quickly - which is never easy. In addition, unless your friends or family have been through a divorce it is hard for them to relate to what you are going through. The pain can linger for years. I am a former member of another free support group (not run by therapists) that helps many people deal with betrayal in their marriages. I plan to use their format for discussion which lets those who want to speak talk and doesn't force anyone to discuss their story if they are not ready. We are simply there to relate to each other and talk about our challenges and receive encouragement from others. I want to find like-minded people who are working through the transformations that a divorce demands and are dealing with the important process of healing. We plan to talk about the challenges of learning to trust again, the lingering pain and process of divorce, dating again, maintaining a relationship with the ex and the overall pain of starting over. It will most likely be the first Monday of each month from 7-9. We would like to know how many of you might be interested in attending. If so, feel free to respond to this meet-up. Please do not attend if you are just looking for dating opportunities - this is not a social club. We want serious minded people. Thank you.
