Reclaiming is a proactive step towards healing from relational betrayal. While I was getting divorced, I decided to Reclaim places and things that aggravated the pain of my ex-husband’s affair. I often use the example of Reclaiming restaurants, but there are many different things that can and may need to be Reclaimed for the sake of your emotional health and strength. 

About two weeks ago, I went out on what could be described as a “singles mixer.” A friend of mine invited me and a bunch of her friends to go bowling on a Friday night. We were asked to invite other single friends as well. For me, the whole experience was awkward. I barely knew what to say when a guy asked me out. “Umm… I’ll think about it.” I replied.
