Divorce Selfies — New Trend?
So I ask myself, Self! When is it ok to take a selfie? We know that wakes and funerals are bad places to do that. Especially inside the viewing area. But there's a new trend that seems like it would be quite macabre as well...
Yep, couples are taking selfies while they're getting divorced and using the hashtag #divorceselfies and sharing them on their social media. From the pictures I've seen, some of them are at lawyer's offices, some are just the couple holding their papers, and in some cases, some of these people really don't look happy at all. Apparentley there's a go to site to get rid of your symbols of forever together too: hockmyrock.com

To let go isn’t to forget, not think about or ignore. It doesn’t leave feelings of anger, jealousy or regret. Letting go isn’t winning and it isn’t losing. It’s not about pride and it’s not about how you appear and it’s not obsessing or dwelling on the past. Letting go isn’t blocking memories or thinking sad thoughts and doesn’t leave emptiness, hurt or sadness. It’s not giving in or giving up. Letting go isn’t about loss and it’s not defeat. To let go is to cherish the memories, but to overcome and move on. It is having an open mind and confidence in the future. Letting go is accepting. It is learning and experiencing and growing. To let go is to be thankful for the experiences that made you laugh, made you cry and made you grow. It’s about all that you have, all that you had and all that you will gain. Letting go is having the courage to accept change and the strength to keep moving. Letting go is growing up, it is realising that the heart can sometimes be the most potent remedy. To let go is to open a door and to clear a path and set yourself free. #DivorceSelfie #420 😹

D'day was classy. It was full of hugs, giggles and high fives. I'm so lucky to call this guy my best friend. He deserves nothing but the world. Cheers, Matty. 🍻 Oh! And then we met Bill Murray. #divorceselfie #billmurray #charleston #newbeginnings

We went to court and got divorced today, and then went out for a beer and a selfie. Totally normal, right? Seems appropriate because nothing we've ever done is normal. I'm grateful to this guy for 25 sometimes good, sometimes not-so-good, years together. We raised each other from adolescence to adulthood and then made two beautiful children we love like crazycakes. Instead of being disappointed that our choice to be together didn't last forever, we choose to accept that sometimes good things fall irreparably apart, to be thankful for the adventures we had, to look forward to the new and exciting ways we will grow as individuals and in other relationships, and to commit to a lifelong friendship and coparenting partnership-- not just because it's good for our little ones, but because it's also good for us. KB, thanks for making this day, and so many other days, easier. You will always be my family. "Your heart and my heart are very, very old friends." (Rumi) #divorceselfie
