However, their relationship ended in 2002. “She seems, you know, OK to me when I talk to [her],” Thornton said. “I don’t talk to her that often, though. You know? We’re still very good friends, but she’s got her world, I’ve got mine.”

Cupid’s Advice:

Emotional hurt won’t last forever, which is something to think about if you’ve gone through divorce. Cupid is here to make the drama a little easier to manage:

1. Ignore the petty communication: If your ex is not trying to solve a solution, but rather egg on a fight, then it’s not worth a response. For example, if you dropped off your child, and your ex-partner sends you a text negatively commenting on the parenting you did, you do not have to answer. This will take out some of the fight, and you will be the more positive person.

2. Take a break: Going through a divorce is stressful, and you’re going to feel overwhelmed. It’s okay to take a step back for a little while to give yourself room to breathe. You can’t go on with an unclear head. Get back to it when you’re ready. Make sure you are healthy!

3. Remind yourself of the outcome: Keep positive, because once the divorce is finalized, you’re going to have a better life. Your divorce is happening for a reason, because you weren’t happy. It may seem tough now, but in the end, it will be worth it. Keep your head up and push through!
