I was hanging out with some new mum friends from my son's school the other day, and after a few minutes of chatting we all realised that we were all either divorced, or in the process of separating.
The conversation soon turned to how relieved each of us were that we were no longer living in unhealthy and unhappy marriages.
One of the mums was relieved that she no longer had to share her house with her ex, another was overjoyed at being able to relax in her garden during the summer evenings without the negative energy in her home that once was. And another was happy that she no longer had to fight over the remote control and could watch whatever she wanted on TV.
I on the other hand, got to thinking about how peaceful life really was now that I was on my own and no longer living in an abusive and toxic relationship. It reminded me of a poem that I wrote soon after leaving my ex which I turned into a video animation (you can watch it below).
There is so much to be said for living life in peace. But we don't always have to leave our partners to experience this, especially if we if what we really want is to save our marriage - and especially if our marriage isn't abusive or toxic.
There is something else in life which gives us this feeling of peace and contentment. A simple understanding that has to potential to change how you experience life and give your relationship with yourself and your partner, the best possible chance to grow and flourish.
I've created a five-module online training programme that will get you well on your way to experiencing this peace and contentment in your life on a daily basis. And I've made the first module available completely free.
