Is There a Perfect Goodbye?
Regardless of why relationships end, there is no “perfect” way to say goodbye. The divorce process provokes many emotions. These can range from sorrow, guilt, fear, or anger all the way over to shame, relief, or even exhilaration. No matter what, the end of a marriage, and the related goodbyes, are almost always difficult for at least one, if not both partners.
How do we deal with that, both internally and with our partners? Wouldn’t it help the divorce process move more smoothly if both spouses had already said “goodbye” to their marriage and to their partner before starting it? Often, the goodbyes remain unspoken, forever causing pain that cannot be defanged because the moment for the goodbye has passed.
The reality is that many of us are not able or find it too painful to say our goodbyes. Even when attempted, the goodbye is often poorly executed or simply misunderstood. This often contributes to resistance to the divorce, creates emotional hurdles that get in the way of the divorce process, and interferes with our ability to co-parent post divorce.
