So many friends and family are having a hard time maintaining relationship with the polarization we are experiencing everywhere we turn. 


There are people in my family, who I love more than life, who’s choices and “opinion” I absolutely cannot understand.


I refuse to allow this divide to destroy my cherished relationships.  Today, I discuss how.


"It’s not about opinion… WE DO NOT LIVE IN THE SAME WORLD.”    – Mark J. Silverman


Today on Mastering Midlife:


  • We are all in some form of fight or flight…we are not at our best.
  • Every issue “feels” like it is life and death.
  • How do we deal with sex, mental health, relationship, career, spirit?
  • I do not back Donald Trump, I love people who do.
  • I have been able to separate the “policies and opinions” from the people I love.
  • We all experience what we experience. I cannot invalidate another’s “experience.”
  • How do I find love when (my experience of) the stakes are so high.
