“I want a divorce.” I had no idea about the impact of these four words until I actually went through it.
Now that I’ve successfully gotten to the other side, building a life for myself and my kids, I’m here to be your voice of hindsight.
There are so many things that we don’t know that happens once we ask for a divorce. And I want you to be able to navigate this process by having a clear picture of its implications and what you can do to get through it stronger and better.
Tune in to this episode on What I Wish I Knew Before Asking For A Divorce
Key points covered in this episode:
✔️ Stop carelessly throwing the word “divorce” around! The moment you say it could be the start of the dissolution of your marriage and impact you financially. Don’t use it as a threat. Consult an expert or a support group if you’re planning it – some couples actually go back together when the situation is handled properly.
✔️ Know what your finances look like. Have a financial planner to help you. Get hold of your tax returns and ensure you have a clear view of credit cards, individual and joint accounts, and other assets.
✔️ Create the vision of the life you want after divorce. A coach can guide you in visualizing that future so you can make decisions from an objective lens. With this, you’ll clearly know what you’re willing to fight for and compromise.
✔️ Divorce isn’t just between you and your ex. It affects your kids too! Consider them in every choice of this journey. You want to set up a future where you can be a good parent and nurture them in this challenging process.
✔️ Speak kinder to yourself. Quiet the negative self-talk. Constant self-judgment keeps you emotional and steers you away from your vision. This is why a coach is so important to help you correct your language.
If you’re somebody who’s in the middle of a divorce, don’t give up. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. You need to have somebody who’s been on this path to guide you in moving through the waves much more quickly.
