Friends are there for you through thick and thin, we get it.

But though your friends may be successful, intelligent, and well-intentioned, their advice can be harmful, especially about divorce!

We all have our own poison that we are trying to get rid of. This means we are all different. If you want real advice on what to do, go to a therapist or counselor, find someone objective to your unique situation. They’re just going to give you an honest opinion from a professional standpoint.

Have you ever heard this?

  • You know what? Everybody’s miserable in their marriage. You should just stick it out.
  • Don’t listen to that attorney I got this amazing result, DO THIS!
  • You know what? I only have sex once a year, that’s enough.
  • You took a vow! For better or for worse, this will pass.

This is all terrible advice! Your friends might just want to see you happy, so they start offering their opinions and their lives aren’t perfect and their situation is completely different from yours. You need to think about what you need to be happy and what your standards are. Live your life by your standards. Not everyone else’s

You can’t look for other people’s approval or disapproval about whether you should be in a marriage or whether you should be getting a divorce.

You deserve to be happy and have the life you want.
