Divorced before the Marriage?

80% of divorcees report knowing that their marriage was a mistake before they walked down the aisle. Relationship author Russell Friedman discloses the five most common thinking errors and behaviors that indicate that emotional baggage is keeping you stuck.

Beliefs And Actions That Indicate That You're Carrying Excess Relationship Baggage:

*You believe that time will heal your emotional wounds
*You think the best way to deal with your broken heart is to "be strong"
*You believe that there are "plenty of fish in the sea," so all you have to do is find a replacement
*You isolate because you're unwilling to tell people how you feel
*You are using food or alcohol or other substances to try to cover up your feelings.
