3. See both sides: It is hard to remember there are two sides of a divorce. It can be easy to just see your side, because of the hurt the divorce has caused you. But if you can remember the other person involved is probably feeling the same way as you, it becomes easier to put yourself in their shoes and come to an understanding.
