Growing Your Separate Ways
If marriage leads to happily ever after, where does divorce lead to? Everyone wants a successful relationship, but is it worth sacrificing happiness and compromising values to prove that you are happy when you clearly are not?
If you are like a lot of people, you avoid the perils of separation and divorce because it exemplifies dysfunction, promotes pain, and represents failure—or so we are brought up to believe.
Choosing to stay and be unhappy leaves you feeling “comfortably numb” and unenthusiastic about the relationship. You no longer want to be with your partner, yet you have no idea how to get from here to there. Essentially, you are feeling stuck.
What if you could consciously uncouple or un-marry in an amicable way that resulted in a positive outcome? Would you be interested in a process of growing forward as individuals, AND create a workable friendship with a new definition of family?
This book is about creating a space for possibilities, the potential to separate, grow, and still live happily ever after. Growing Your Separate Ways offers a process of eight action steps to help you navigate your journey regardless of the stage you are in.
Once you build awareness of your situation and visualize a better outcome, you will begin to make decisions that move you closer to living the life you want, and while becoming a better version of yourself in a friendship with someone you still love and respect.
