When going through a separation or a divorce, we sometimes turn to a psychologist or therapist. However, what we really want to do is ask someone who has gone through the same thing how they dealt with it and how they moved on with their lives. What they want above all else is to feel companionship and understanding.

Tell us about your experience with going through a separation or a divorce.

Feel free to write your experiences the way you wish. You can use your own ideas, or use the questions below as a guide. In the event you use a question, you should only answer that question. You may also answer several questions in separate entries and allow us to choose the best one for the book. Whatever your preference, only a maximum of 2,000 characters will be published.
