What IS the right way to divorce? Divorce is a big unknown for most people ... so how do you know the best way to approach it? Watch my brief video to learn how.
I confess. I was completely overwhelmed by my divorce. Where once I had been on solid ground, now I was at sea without any sense of how I was going to stay afloat, never mind what direction I needed to take. I honestly didn’t know what to do. I was paralyzed, in limbo, while I tried to re-orient myself. And then when I did, I was overwhelmed by the confusing divorce process and my attorney’s sheer lack of empathy. I understand. It’s a business for him – but for me, it was my life. And now, after my divorce, I can honestly say that, even as a divorce coach, I am still overwhelmed by picking up the pieces of my life and re-building them in a way that serves and fulfills me. Ultimately, divorce is an overwhelming tidal wave of change that happens to you.
To me, that feeling of overwhelm is like being on the verge of drowning. It doesn’t feel as if you have any options in that space where you are just trying to hold on, to survive. Acting from this place, though, can lead you to make some serious, yet entirely avoidable, mistakes in the divorce process.
