I am a divorce attorney. I have been asked a number of times as to whether I expect a spike in business, following the pandemic. The answer is – yes. The bigger question is, why?

The COVID-19 pandemic forced us all home. Many of us worked from home, cooked at home, played at home, entertained ourselves and our children at home. Many of us left our homes only on our biweekly grocery shopping trip. We suddenly had no distractions, nowhere to hide from the issues we were suppressing or ignoring. We were forced to see our relationships – with our spouses, our co-workers and our children — for what they truly were. For some, this was good news. For some, it was the opposite. What was tolerable became intolerable, and at the same time, what was good became great.

My friend, Andy, says that we must feel the lows, to get to feel the highs. He refers to this as an “Emotional Wavelength.”

Andy Rader is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Florence, KY. Andy has developed a theory on the importance – the absolute imperative importance – of truly feeling our emotions. I asked him to share his thoughts on this topic, in a brief 2-3 minute video. He started talking, and when you watch, you will see the video is longer than a few minutes – but I cut as much as I could. It’s 8 minutes of wisdom that you won’t want to miss.

Andy quotes Braveheart in saying: “All men die, but not all men truly live.” If you want to be one of those who truly live, then have a listen as Andy describes his theory on Emotional Wavelength.
