Top points you’ll discover:
✔️ The divorce rate shows mind-blowing statistics. Do you know that women initiate two out of three divorces, making almost 70% of all divorces is women initiated? Even though the divorce rate is slightly declining, the rising area is called gray divorce, which comprises the 50 to 65 age group. The divorce rate has gone up close to 90% in the last five years and doubled in the previous 20 years. Isn’t that insane? The statistics tell you literally that you are not alone in this journey.
✔️ Whatever causes push one party to decide the marital dissolution, the psychological benefits for the persons involved far outweigh the costs and emotional distress of a divorce. Women go through more burdens after the relationship is over, yet they take the courage to stand up and decide when enough is enough.
✔️ You’ve gone through the heartaches of divorce, but you don’t necessarily have to let your health suffer for it. The risk of a heart attack in divorced women is two times more likely than in someone who is not. Your blood pressure spikes, you are in a heightened state, you’re anxious, angry and pained. Start your healing and recovery, overcome physical manifestations of divorce in your body and find support to get back to who you loved yourself to be.

Going through an immense betrayal can be the most difficult thing to get over. In fact, it makes it hard for us to trust others again. Believe me. I know how it feels. My ex-husband cheated on me, and he was the last person I’d have ever thought to be capable of hurting me. It took me some time to realize that trust has to start within ourselves.
After her son was born, Kristy Carruthers had to sell off their clothing, jewelry, and belongings. She started interviewing for jobs at four weeks postpartum. After living on credit cards for a few months, she just hit the end of the rope and ended up having to sell the house to pay the credit card bills. That’s when the mind shift happened. I said to myself, ‘You know what? This can never happen again. This is not acceptable.'”
When I was married, divorce was never on my mind.
It never occurred to me that it had to be something I should learn about.
Fast forward to today, it continues to be that gift that keeps on giving. It has taught me about myself more than I ever knew.
Even though I’ve undergone therapy, I still believe that what I’ve endured and experienced post-divorce unraveled five lessons that I never would’ve discovered on my own.
