Forgiving the People You Love to Hate, Judy Logue
"The leader of the course said going through a divorce is the same as if your spouse dies – you deal with the same amount of grief, loss of dreams and hopes that you had for your life, but in some ways it's harder because the person hasn't died, they're still there. I learned some important lessons for getting through day-to-day and acquired the tools that I needed to rebuild my life and look to the future with hope."
