Processing the Pain of Infidelity

Amy Chan | Posted December 3, 2012

These struggles in our lives are opportunities for us to heal old wounds and to grow. They are catalysts that have to be triggered in order for you to overcome them. These experiences may not feel good at the time, but they are not good or bad -- they are just a part of the human journey.

Amy Shiner | Posted December 3, 2012

Lauren Taylor Shute | Posted December 3, 2012

I sat with my mother on my bed as the movie ended. We pretended that we weren't both heartbroken at the thought of her only daughter moving away from home and simply focused on how great I would look in my new trench coat traipsing around New York City à la Anne Hathaway.
