Raising Happiness


On the Blog in March: Divorce

March 27, 2012 | Newsletters | 0 comments

Thank you all for your engaging comments this month as I blogged about a tough topic: divorce. And marriage. And everything in between!

I’ve noticed that people in other forums tend to be pretty harsh when controversial issues touch that family-values-nerve. In comparison, Greater Good and Raising Happiness readers clearly show more compassion and less judgement as they work out sticky issues.  Which makes me proud: compassion is, of course, a happiness habit!
