I’m glad you’re here!Divorce is one of the hardest journeys you will ever make, in part because it’s a transformational journey—
divorce. It reads:
“Just when the caterpillar thought life was over, it became a butterfly.”
I’ve since learned that a caterpillar’s metamorphosis requires a complete disintegration—down to a few cells. Those few cells then develop into the new and beautiful creature we know as a butterfly. Complete transformation. Your life will be reduced to what seems like nubbins. But those pieces of familiarity that you treasure will develop into a new and beautiful life. A life that you design this time, not a life by default—a life by design. Being here with this workbook in hand is a great first step in your recovery, healing, and transformation.
I praise your bravery. I hope that you acknowledge yourself for your courage and strength. They are enough. This is not a journey for the faint of heart. All you need is the courage to do the next thing. That’s it. Just do the next thing. I will be with you.
With you in strength,
