Divorcing My Barber from Hell

By | Humour, Stress Management, Wellness and Wisdom | No Comments

Divorce is Difficult but Often Necessary by Mike Moore

My barber and I have divorced. The separation came after much deliberation and soul searching. I just couldn’t take the doom and gloom another second. (I always seem to hang on to what is familiar even when I know it’s time to let go.)

God knows I hung in as long as I could out of habit and routine, hoping against hope that things would change… but they didn’t. I reached a point where I could no longer sit captive and endure his cynicism, negativity and fear inducing diatribes.

The fact that he would constantly stop cutting my hair then stand in front of me brandishing his scissors and comb while ranting on about something or other and expecting me to agree with him, made the decision to divorce the right one. Thank God there were no children involved.

Finally I couldn’t take it any longer. After he had finished his rant I looked at him and said,” Why is it that after every haircut you give me I feel like jumping off the nearest cliff? I noticed that even those waiting to have their haircut snickered in what I took as agreement.

We have been divorced about a year now and I’m getting on with my life. Things do seem to work out in the end.

If you’re interested in the follow-up to this I have now found a new barber who is more positive, joyful and more pleasant to be near. She can also talk and cut at the same time.

I have finally found happiness.

  • Dear Mike
    We so enjoy your philosophy, your positive attitude and your sense of humour. After extensive cancer surgery and John being diagnosed with Parkinson’s life has been, and still is, at times, a bumpy road. But each day is a gift and with so much of your positive input we keep going. We hope to have the pleasure of meeting you personally.
    Until then, thank you.

  • This Amazon.com review by Wendy Priesnitz is for Embracing the Mystery (Paperback)
    This is a little jewel of a book, which contains a wealth of inspiration for living a happier, healthier, more fulfilling life.
    Moore provides tips for reducing stress, improving self-esteem, banishing fear, nurturing patience, and more. But more than that, he helps us get back in touch with the sense of joy and wonder that so often gets buried under the busyness of daily life.
    The author is also a cartoonist and his casual writing style is enhanced by a generous dose of appropriate cartoons, which never fail to bring a smile to my lips, no matter how glum I’m feeling. This is one of those books to which I return whenever I feel like I need help becoming a better person.

When your response to the day’s events increases your stress level why not take a one minute vacation.

This photo was taken at a cottage we rented on Lake Erie.

I love the quote from Gandhi
