A divorce is one of the most traumatic life events you’ll ever experience.
I know. My divorce hit me like a ton of bricks.
I was filled with anxiety. Where would I live? Would I survive financially? Those questions, and hundreds of others, consumed me.
I knew everything was about to change, but I didn’t know precisely what, and I didn’t know precisely how.
If I only knew then what I know now.
That I would be all right.
That I would be happier.
That in time, my life would be far better than it was before.
I eventually realized that one of the worst things I ever went through turned out to be one of the best things that ever happened.
If you’re reading this, the odds are you’re where I once was—anxious, afraid, and worried about all the unknowns.
You will get through this. This moment will pass. And you will emerge stronger, wiser, and better than before.
I understand what you’re going through, and I can help.
