Q: I have a friend who occasionally makes derogatory comments about “divorcees.” I’ve been divorced and it kind of offends me. Should I say something?
A: That depends. One possible explanation is that your friend has actually forgotten about your divorce, which means you’re doing a pretty good job of acting like a normal person. In this case, say nothing! You’re passing! DON’T BLOW IT.
Another explanation is that your friend is a jerk. If you suspect this is the case, go ahead and say something. And then get some new friends.
If you’re just looking to raise awareness about divorcees, consider starting a blog about divorce. That’s the best way to remind people that you’ve been divorced.
Oh, and one last thing. Don’t start a blog about divorce. It’s a horrible idea.
