It’s a two-way street: Helping others, helping yourself through support.
As I was going through my three-year, high-conflict divorce, friends frequently told me they heard of similar situations regarding divorce. The more I talked about it, the more I realized there was a constant theme of manipulation and injustice to varying degrees within family courts. Divorce left me emotionally and financially devastated and without my children. I was curious to know what other people were experiencing the same confusing heartache: Trying to understand how my kids could hate me, their mom they once loved. I decided to post a PAAO meeting notice on Facebook.
