Why It Is Important To Speak With Respect About Your Ex
by Kim Hess

It is important to speak with decency about others. This statement could be no truer than when talking about your former spouse.  Words are so powerful that it can either build you or destroy you.

Why it is important to speak with respect about your ex:

Good Karma

As the golden rule says, do unto others what you want to be done unto you

Less talk, Less Mistakes

The philosophy that if you don't have anything good to say, then don't say anything at all should always be applied to divorcing spouses. This holds true not only in dealing with your ex but also in your day-to-day encounter with people. Also, talking with respect about your ex may give you an advantage during divorce hearings and proceedings.

Avoid Misjudgment

People often make judgments about us based on what we say. Confide in your closest and truest friends.  Do not to share everything to everyone. Keep some things untold. In this way, you minimize the chance of being misjudged.

Have a positive outlook in life. Think positive, say positive words and act positively. Always remind yourself that not only can this philosophy create better atmosphere for you and your ex but it can also make you better as an individual.
