Three readers tell us how casting their judgement aside led to closure, forgiveness and progress, even under the most trying of circumstances

MICHELLE ARMITAGE, 49, INTERIOR DESIGNER

When I found out that my boyfriend had cheated on me with his ex-girlfriend, I was so shocked that I actually threw up. It was 1995, I was 28 and totally in love with him – the kind of romantic love that consumes you like a fire – so the betrayal was devastating.

About Psychologies

When we change our minds, we change our lives. This issue explores what happens when we do just this. What if you didn’t resign from a job, but could change the way you feel about it? Or what about finding a new way to open up to love? Or, what happens when we challenge the judgements we make about ourselves and each other? Read the astonishing life-changing effects of what happens when you think differently.   Change doesn’t always feel positive - you're made redundant, or your relationship breaks down, or we lose someone we love. And it's awful. Yes, we don’t always have control over what happens out there, but we always have control over how we react to it. This issue explores how to change our perspective to create the world we want.
