The purpose of our group is to support one another and aid in the healing process after divorce. We will endeavor to learn new skills that will help us to understand and deal with various emotions and challenges related to moving forward with our lives.“If you want a safe, accepting place to share the difficulties of this transition, this is the place to be.”“Divorce is a terrible milestone in someone's life.....if anyone is going to understand you, it's the person that's feeling the same way right now.”“It's not good to go through this alone. Listening to others makes you realize you can help others and be helped by others with some empathy of your situation, and be encouraged to move forward."“These are all great people and we have much to learn from each other. Hearing other's stories helps a lot.”"Like the idea that I am able to share my thoughts and feelings with others going or have gone through the process of separation and divorce. Great sounding board, and got some great tips and advice."
