In order to provide care for others, we have to take care of ourselves. The New Year is a good time to do it. I hope to get some good resolutions out of my retreat this year.
For anyone dealing with a bad family situation, like some kind of lawsuit, you have to get away if you can a little to get some perspective. As I tell clients, the wheels of justice run VERY slowly. It is better to resolve cases outside of court in almost every family law situation, unless there is some kind of bad abuse going on or something like that.
So for those of you who are involved in litigation, try to take care of yourself, and not get too consumed with the case. Hard to do, but important. Take advantage of the mediation process. You can mediate formally or informally, ask your attorney about all of the options.
Happy and healthy New Year to all blog readers,
