Default The most important thing you learned from ODF is ...?

Random curiosity here:

What would you say is the single most important thing you learned, or the most important piece of advice you received, from lurking/posting/reading on ODF?

For me, I would say that the most important thing I learned is that I do not need to respond to every provocation the ex sends me - that I don't need to attend every argument I'm invited to, in other words. Sometimes (usually) not responding is the best thing to do.

In PQ perhaps. In the rest of Canada? Nope. You'd never make it my friend. Women would eat you for breakfast.

I've learned that divorce and separation are experiences that are extremely powerful. I've learned about the imbalance and desperate need for reform in the system.

It's been eye opening here on odf to see all the mad, sad, hurt individuals all gathered together on this forum....at times projecting and other times helping with great advice.

Odf was instrumental in getting my daughter back and achieving 50/50....I'll be forever grateful to this site and many of its members.

Theres that but also document document document. And possibly no receipt no pay.

Watching my partners knee jerk reactions and being held to standards his ex refuses to follow has been difficult.

Plus the cool people Ive met here!
