There are all sorts of reasons why people leave relationships and even though breakups are incredibly common, they're also deeply personal.
That's the painful part of divorcing. (That’s what makes you feel so utterly alone.)
My first divorce occurred when I was 7. (Yes, parents - it's your child's first divorce.) My second, after my first marriage and divorce at 23... then, following15 years of marriage to the father of my children, I again knew the best thing for my family was for that marriage to dissolve… (Hadn't I solved this?!)
You see, three major heartaches have forced me to learn the hard lessons of forgiveness, understanding, and patience.
- Toward my parents and their relationship, and their relationships to me and my brothers and sisters.
- Toward the men I loved and married.
- Toward the father of my children.
Toward the person I was when I didn't know any better
Even though you may feel a bit wiped out or fearful right now - you may even have made the conscious decision to pull in and hide from other people - you’ve got to remember one thing:
No matter what's going on during your separation and divorce, your life will continue and you're the only one who gets to create and live it.
It’s critical to surround yourself with the right kind of support as you begin to create a better future for yourself and your family.
As a many-time, divorced overachiever, I discovered the really hard way the importance of understanding this modern day rite of passage.
So where are you? Does any of this ring true? Sure, you have your own circumstances and injustices, I get it. But do you know where you're going and how to get there?
I’m shamelessly open about my own personal experiences to let you know that it’s OK to be vulnerable, to admit having bad days and to not know what direction the future has for you and your family.
However, there is a way out. There is a path. Are you ready to create a better life?
Pretty huge, right?
Yeah, I think so too. It’s taken me some time to understand this modern day rite of passage but I’ve got it now! Wouldn’t you like to too?
