Sweaty palms. Heart racing. Fear. Can’t breathe. Is it a horror film? Close. A divorce negotiation. A huge element of divorce is negotiation. Negotiation in general is a very highly honed and learned skill, and divorce negotiation is often the highest stakes form of persuasion we can encounter and the most uncomfortable.

I used to be a make wrong queen. If I wanted to move on in a job or a relationship, I started the process of looking for all sorts of evidence to prove how wrong the boss was or the guy was. And just like when you buy a new car, you start noticing all those same cars on the road, when you are looking for evidence in reality to prove that the other person is wrong, you will find it.
