Try these listening skills for a more peaceful divorce:

Let go of anger

Anger leads to bad things in divorce. Anger makes us say and do things just to punish our spouse. This feeds a cycle of growing anger and defensiveness in both spouses.

Anger is like picking up a hot coal and throwing it at the other person—it burns both people. When spouses realize anger is the real enemy in divorce, the cycle of bad karma can stop.
