Communicating and dealing with your ex after divorce is a given when you have children together.
You clean out all the junk food from the cupboards and replace them with healthy and non-fattening foods.
The real divorce is the cutting of the emotional, mental and physical ties that still bind you to your ex-husband.
This is the real work of divorce recovery: becoming a single woman possessed of confidence, self-esteem, and an enthusiasm for life and most important, a complete break from the emotional turmoil that led to your divorce in the first place.
There are those women who cannot have their ex in their lives for any reason other than the children.
Their emotional ties to their ex are still strong and they need to isolate themselves in order to break those ties.
Let me give you examples: You and your ex have children together; therefore you must be in contact with one another on a regular basis.
