Toxic Relationships Of Others

I'm in a unique space that puts me smack dab between my peers getting married remarried, divorced, and inhabiting spaces in between.

My friends are expanding their families and, to my surprise at how fast time flies, a couple of my slightly-older-than-me peers are experiencing the birth of their first grandchildren. 

I'm seeing it all. Most important, I'm hearing it all. And for a while, it effected me.

Picture the scene. 

I'm at an offsite office party somewhere downtown, eating, drinking and chatting with co-workers. 

One of my colleagues begins discussing her impending divorce. Another lends his support--having gone through a couple of divorces himself--by assuring her of all the positive things she can expect to experience when the legal proceedings are final.

"You'll be better off. You'll have more peace. And you'll find that you'll have more money," he says.
