When we hold onto resentments we are holding on to negativity. Holding onto negativity is counter-productive to leading a happy, calm, conflict free, positive life.   Negativity is draining.  Imagine you are holding all your resentments in a  bag.  How large would it be?  Do you really want to continue carrying it?

Ten top tips for assertiveness during divorce proceedings

Going through a divorce or separation can be very difficult and challenging for most people. Being assertive will help you to approach divorce with a positive attitude that can help create an environment where all parties get their needs met.
