There’s always self-learning that comes from divorce. Always. And the payback from that often painful, awkward self-examination is growth and getting closer to living your full potential:
I’m a better person now, I’m a better role model especially for my daughter. Hopefully, if something isn’t working out the way she wants, she’ll be able to express what she needs instead of just going along with what her husband or boyfriend wants and that it’s alright to say that even though she’s a woman and it’s OK not to keep the peace all the time.
When Cathy and I talked she had been divorced for two years. She said if I had asked her about her most significant accomplishment a year ago she would have said figuring out all the household maintenance but now it was really stepping into who she was, celebrating her talents and yes, speaking up for herself.
