Divorce is a traumatic, painful event that can rock you to your core, shake your self-confidence and make you doubt everything you thought you knew. You’re likely not going to be rushing to embrace your newly single life after divorce.
Yet, as journalist and TV news anchor Tamsen Fadal says, “Happily Single comes before Ever After” and that’s a philosophy every divorce coach I know follows and recommends to clients.
Happily Single is about learning who you are, learning to love yourself and accepting that your history is what makes you uniquely you.
Tamsen joins me for this episode of Conversations About Divorce to discuss why this journey is so important and necessary for so many of us, how you can manage it in just 365 days and just as importantly, how you can do it even if your budget is extremely limited.
