Because I was Angry

Because I was angry

Because I didn't think

Because I was exhausted and on edge

Because I'd been drinking

Because I can be mean

Because I was reckless and selfish

Because I was worried about money

Because my marriage was dead

Because other people were doing it

Because I thought I could get away with it


I did something wrong.

Because I'm in pain

Because I wish I could undo it

Because I hurt him

Because I lost her trust

Because I let them down

Because I was self-destructive

Because I was foolish

Because I'm ashamed

Because that's not who I am

Because that's not who I want to be


I want to be forgiven

- Rabbi Shelly Marder & Rabbi Janet Marder

Apologies and forgiveness are powerful emotions aspects in many divorces.  These emotions are not considered when a divorce process does not allow the parties to interact because the lawyers do the negotiations and the Judge hears just the parties testimony about the terms of an agreement.  I believe that many divorces last years and often require returns to court over years since the parties did not have the opportunity to vent and move past their anger.   Mediation allows parties to broach this area in a confidential protected environment.
