Season 1: 006 Seeking Closure After Divorce
As you all know, I am divorced. Although I am not defined by this, I understand the importance of working through this life-altering decision. In order to truly move on, we have to seek closure so we can properly heal. There is no right time for closure, so go easy on yourself but we willing to challenge the wound. In order to truly heal you have to be willing to process, that can mean taking responsibility. It typically takes two for a marriage to fall apart. In this episode, my ex-husband and I sit down to talk about, what happened? How did we get here? But most importantly, what did we learn from all of this? Divorce can bring many questions about what went wrong and who's to blame for what, in the end, not all questions have answers both parties may agree with but part of letting go is accepting that that cannot be changed or even fully accounted for.
Please note this episode is an intimate conversation, it is not scripted, we mess up, we pause and we interrupt. You can hear the anxious desire to get it all out. Be respectful and listen with an open mind and heart.
Thank you, Andres Felipe Molina, for having the courage and strength to do this with me.
May you all find this to be helpful in your own healing.
