We can’t get through life without being in relationships—be they love, friend, work, or the most casual interactions between strangers. And who would want to? It’s the connections between us that make life rich. Relationship splats, though, can be devastating.
I’ve been through divorce and break-ups, and I’ve always found even more wondrous relationships after I lost the ones I thought I had to have. I’ve also been through relationship struggles—anger, resentment, frustration—and transformed that into something that makes the relationship stronger. Every relationship splat is just a step toward more spectacular relationships.
