Meet the Author

Helen Fried remarried in 2006 and found the intricacies of dealing with a blended family and ex-spouses to be quite trying. She founded a monthly support group to allow others with similar divorce stories to vent, working together to grow from their hardships. Residing in Weston, Florida, Fried continues to write as she works to build a happy family with her husband Steve Fried, children Nicolas and Lexi, and step-children Matthew and Danielle.

Read an Excerpt

Stop right there! There will be no “why me’s” allowed here. It’s unfortunate, but the “happily ever after” you envisioned for yourself with your ex is no more. One or both of you has moved on from the marriage; whether it was emotionally, spiritually, or physically, the marriage has run its course. Wasting your energy and time on asking, “Why me?” will benefit no one.

I’m not saying it will be easy. What I am saying is that you need to remember that you have children who are looking to you for strength and guidance. This is not the time to wallow, crumble, or falter; this is the time to find your inner strength and press on.

So, first things first: Stop looking at the wedding video. In fact, push “eject” and take that DVD out of the machine! Put away all the old photo albums. Stop dreaming about what could have been and start planning on what will be. This is the time to dust off your knees, stand tall, and begin moving forward.

Remember—you are not on this journey alone. You have beautiful children who are going to need you now more than ever. It’s time to take stock of everything and keep keeping on!
