Attitude Provides the Taste to Life

Dear Coach, I am a divorcee aged 41 years. I was so committed in my marriage and I trusted and believed in my ex- wife so much that I never thought one day will be separated. I did everything I possibly could so that I give her the life she desired and loved her like she was the only woman alive on planet earth. After a good six years, our union came to cease and it broke my heart so much. I am filled with a lot of bitterness and anger because of what she put me through and at times I feel that all women are like that. Whenever I meet someone, I recall every bad experience that my former partner had made me endure and the new relationship would not last. I see my ex on each one of them and I can seem to trust like I once did. I live a very lonely life since I am afraid of falling in love again. I do not want to experience the heart-break just like the latter that got me divorced. How do I get over this excruciating trauma and get to love again? Please help me out Coach. Yours, Anonymous

One of the biggest challenges that we face as a nation is that we...
