Celebrity Christie Brinkley chose to go public about the sordid affair her husband Peter Cook had, but is that move backfiring?
“Christie Brinkley is out to get more than just custody of the children – she is out to get revenge and revenge is the most destructive emotion we can choose to express and in Brinkley’s case it will harm her, her children and sway public opinion against her” says author of “Get the man you want!”, Human Behavior Expert and Life Coach Patrick Wanis PhD.
“Brinkley had the chance but she opposed a move by the legal guardian for her children that would have closed the proceedings to the public. She wanted the whole world to know everything – the intimate details of her estranged husband Peter Cook’s affair with the teenager and the intimate details of their 10-year marriage. But dirty laundry and turning into a bitter scorned woman can consume you, overpower you and turn the world against you as was the case with Paul McCartney’s ex-wife, Heather Mills.”
“Christie Brinkley is completely justified in feeling her anger at her husband’s horrible betrayal and she is justified in wanting to lash out and hurt her husband. The danger here lies not in the fact that she is feeling those emotions but rather in the fact that she is acting on those emotions and feeding her anger and desire for payback and revenge. When we are hurt, betrayed, humiliated or emotionally injured it is a natural psychological response to want to hurt back the person that hurt us, to try and reclaim our power or to payback the person that humiliated us. We need to understand that when we give into the desire for revenge, it can completely consume us and destroy all of our inner peace for we often only end up creating more hurt for ourselves and those around us. While Christie Brinkley might be fighting for custody of the children, she is also harming them because completely destroying the image of any parent in a child’s eyes results in emotional scarring of the child. Brinkley jeopardizes her children’s emotional health because they could grow up with hatred and resentment towards one if not both of their parents, they could become closed and unable to trust, and they could learn to hold onto anger and judgment rather than learning forgiveness, compassion and letting go” says Wanis. “Christie Brinkley needs to be careful because hatred, bitterness and revenge could destroy her and her happiness!”
