My cousin got divorced recently and I noticed on her Facebook page that she wrote a very kind thank you to her friends and family who helped her through this difficult “journey.”

She didn’t mention what that journey was — divorce.

Several people wrote “You’re in my prayers,” and “hugs” and other supportive kind things, a few of them having no idea what they were supporting her about.

I wrote: “Congratulations on your new beginning.” Which is what I say to most people who’ve gotten divorced.
