STOP Being A Victim Of Your Own Divorce & Take CHARGE Of Your Life

Heartbreak, Self

There's more than one way to divorce.

Whether it’s consensual and amicable or a bitter, ugly battle, divorce is a relentless, draining force on your life. The process wreaks havoc on your emotions, body, family, job, self-esteem, self-worth  even your friendships.

Although divorce can feel like a never-ending drama that overshadows every aspect of your life, you also have to consider that time is also part of the cost.

We're not only talking about the financial expense. The time it takes to get through all the meetings, the paperwork, the negotiations and mediations for division of debt and assets, the child custody and support  it ALL takes a toll on both your finances AND your mental health.

According to, the average divorce can cost over $15,000 and can take up to 11 months. If you have to go to trial over disputes, jack up that cost significantly to almost $20,000 ... and be prepared to hang in there for another 6 and ½ months for your divorce to be settled.

And when there are children involved, the toll divorce takes on them adds another smothering layer of exaggerated responsibility and guilt on top of everything else you’re dealing with.

Parenting becomes a whole different ball game — the little ones are confused and afraid and the older ones are bitter and rebellious. It's important to take a second to see and understand how the divorce impacts them.

You’re beyond sad, beyond angry, terrified, and plagued with the ‘why me’ questions circling your brain about the divorce.

Amidst the turmoil of extreme emotional pain and feelings of abandonment, the hardest thing for you to contemplate right now is your future, but to recover from divorce and keep your sanity, the future is what you MUST focus on.
