Are you thinking of separating, currently divorcing, or living life as a divorcée and wondering if you will ever be happy again?
I understand what you are going through, because I’ve experienced it…TWICE!
Did you know that the average age of couples going through divorce is 30? I guess that I am extra special, because by that age I had already filed for divorce number 2. I’m such an overachiever, haha!
In all seriousness, my goal in writing this blog is to let you know that the torture you are currently undergoing is temporary. I can feel your eyes rolling from here.. I know this is a hard concept to understand when it feels like a chore to get out of bed every single day. It’s infuriating to hear, “Everything is going to be alright”, so I will spare you the sentiment. Instead, I will share that although divorce is devastating and overwhelming, if you take the right steps forward, it can strengthen you and change your life for the better.
I was twenty-six when I went through my first divorce and I remember feeling like no one could relate to me. In hopes of finding comfort and advice, I ransacked the internet for stories of women divorcing in their 20s and 30s. I was disappointed to learn that not many women were sharing what they did to get through their divorces. I can’t be the only woman who got married young and divorced before 30, right?
After years of struggle, mistakes, and depression, I have become a woman I can now be proud of. This is why I feel empowered to share my experiences, advice, inspiration, and support with you. I didn’t have anyone I could relate to during the worst moments of my life, but you don’t have to go through it alone. If I can help one person to feel less lonely, if I can get one woman to smile or even laugh today, if I can help you to gather the strength to wipe away the tears and get out of the house, then my mission has been accomplished. If you’re interested in learning how you can better yourself and gain insight into how I have successfully moved on after two failed marriages, then please feel free to browse my future blog posts. I would love to hear any suggestions you may have for topics of conversation or any advice you need in the comment section. Thank you so much for stopping by, and may you find peace!
