"There is no such thing as a broken family. Family is not determined by marriage certificates or divorce papers. Families are made in the heart."
- C. Joybell C.
Why do I feel like a failure?
Many people equate relationship success with longevity. Thus, it's normal for our minds to interpret separation or divorce as a failure.
But what if there was another way to construe the ending of a marriage or committed relationship?
What if every partner is teacher? What if some lessons are meant to last a season instead of a lifetime?
If you are open to receiving the valuable lessons your partner has taught you (which can be hard to do early on in the process), then there is no such thing as failure. There is only learning.
