A Man's Feelings: Finding Closure after Divorce
"If I can't find happiness alone, then I do not deserve it!"
-- Michael L. Eads from A Man’s Feelings: Finding Closure after Divorce p.166
Divorce Amplifies Challenging Times
Times are hard! From Wall Street to Main Street everyone must confront these challenging economic times. Going through a separation and divorce amplifies the emotional stress of all newly divorced men and women. As if going through divorce isn’t bad enough, many individuals are being laid off from their jobs or forced out of their homes as a result of the current financial crisis. These are truly challenging times!
This is no time to panic. If you are a man or woman facing a divorce you need to take the proper steps to ensure your path to closure. I firmly believe the first few months of a divorce are the most critical time to take action. Inaction is the enemy. You must make arrangements for your emotional well-being; otherwise the healing process will take years instead of months. The trauma after divorce can be devastating.
In my divorce book, I focus more on the emotional ramifications of divorce than the legal. Both are critical but you will have to deal with your emotional state long after your divorce is settled in the courts. Don’t deal with your divorce emotions by not dealing with them. This is the path to isolation, loneliness and in some cases drug and alcohol addiction. Don’t go down the road of separation and divorce alone.
Men and women going through divorce emotions just want to feel better. I understand. In A Man’s Feelings, Finding Closure after Divorce I discuss the entire spectrum of divorce trauma. From divorce class to Internet dating to finding healthy post-divorce habits that will ensure your mental and physical well-being, this divorce book will help you to your ultimate destination, closure.
A Man’s Feelings, Finding Closure after Divorce was a result of my insatiable desire to find some semblance of peace after my separation and divorce. I want all men and women to understand that with a little patience and work, you too can achieve closure after divorce. Never give up hope!

Author of A Man's Feelings: Finding Closure after Divorce
Review From Redmond Reporter (April 8, 2009)
The title of Eads' book, "A Man's Feelings," might imply that it's only for male readers. That's not true, he said.
"More women than men have been buying the book, for their sons or friends who are going through a divorce or even for their ex-husbands," said Eads.
The title was inspired by lyrics from the song "Shame on the Moon," written by Rodney Crowell and recorded by Bob Seger: "Until you've been beside a man, you don't know how it feels."
Eads explained, "Men deal with it by not dealing with it."
Women tend to talk — or vent. Men withdraw.
