I have just gone through an intense divorce. The betrayal of him bedding someone else wasn't what hurt the most, it was his sabotage of my two businesses that were farm-based. Only two and a half months after I had retired from the military (and I had invested a decade of livestock breeding and the last five years of my military income into these businesses so I'd have employment in an uncertain economy) he left for work, and later that day sent me an email (yes, an email!) stating he was divorcing me. He stopped paying the mortgage, knowing there was no way I could save the place and my investments with the 25% retirement amount of what I had been paid as active duty. This led to a year of his lies, deception, and manipulation of the courts, my friends and former co-workers trying to get them on "his side". With him being passive-aggressive, you can imagine the roller-coaster of the 6-1/2 year marriage that took place as I was preparing for my retirement. There was a saboteur from within the marriage and business. The worst kind of betrayal. And I had a plethora of emotions wondering what, if anything, would be a salve. I bought this book as soon as I saw it available. I'm glad I did!
Dr. Laura explains, through several examples of her own experiences, and a few of her callers to her show, that everyone has these emotions. It was comforting to know I'm really not alone in this, and unfortunately, there are evil (not just "mean") people who will do evil things to satisfy whatever they are lacking in, and good people are going to be targeted and hurt.Read more ›
I went through something years ago that this book would have helped and I kick myself for not having done my research and figured out how to solve what was going on, better. I would just say simply, if you are going through anything that involves you being betrayed by someone, whether it's a divorce or a job situation or a family mess or whatever-- this book is helpful, gives great pointers and advice on how to proceed when your world is being yanked out from under you. I found the advice extremely comforting and reassuring, and I think it will stop you from doing something stupid to retaliate. And remind you where your real, true priorities are (under the reactionary feelings). It's a fantastic read and very well written.
