Divorce is one of the most painful, scary, and overwhelming life experiences that someone can go through as a human. It rocks your foundation and leaves you feeling so deeply alone. It causes you to question how you’ll pay your bills, survive on your own, support your children, be able to trust another person in the future, and even just make it through the day. As much as we want it to…the world doesn’t stop when we’re in immense pain – but in one-on-one coaching sessions, it will slow down. You will have the space to be held and heard. You will have the space to make sense of the sadness, fear, and worry that is consuming you. You will have the space to find you again.
“The process of discovering with somebody that you love that you don’t work is so painful.” – Kate Hudson
Support during this time is essential.
Reaching out for help can sometimes be the last thing on your mind, self-isolation is a common response to such a traumatic experience. Meanwhile, it is one of the most helpful and healing things you can do for yourself. Prioritizing YOU during this time is a great act of self-love and self-care. What can add to the difficulty of asking for help is the guilt, shame, and feelings of failure that often accompany divorce. These are blocks that prevent the natural and needed grief process. Let me make it abundantly clear to you – you are worthy of love, compassion, and understanding always and ESPECIALLY during this time.
Divorce, and break-ups in general, can be a launching pad for profound transformation. While it may be difficult right now even fathom making it through to the other side, let alone finding beautiful change, hear me when I say it is possible.
Perhaps your divorce came as a shock, perhaps you had been working on the marriage for years, perhaps it was your decision to separate, perhaps there was infidelity – regardless of the path you’re on, you deserve compassionate support. Someone to walk alongside you as you rediscover your sense of self and redesign your life in a way that is fulfilling for you.
“I learned that it would take more than just the black and white steps of getting divorced, or even finding a lawyer. It would take NOT just facing my fears. It would take walking into my fears – with each step making me bolder and less ashamed, with each step giving me courage.” – Liza CaldwellIf you want help in navigating the financial, logistical, and emotional challenges of divorce – reach out. You don’t have to walk this alone.
