No, no you don’t. If you blindly follow what your husband says or does (even though it’s wrong) you are just as guilty. Power to all the women out there who had the courage to get out. To stand up and have their OWN voice and not put up with bullshit. I will never be submissive to any man and let whatever he does or say be the final word; especially when he’s making bad choices #womenempowerment#women#divorce

Geez a gal can wish 🙄I’ve been nice even been doing the coparent thing yet when ever I bring up signing this paper it’s a big deal. I’m starting to get salty seeing all these divorced folks who have remarried and found their happily ever after. Yet I’m here with a husband who just caught a charge for one of his chicks and got the other ones bailing him out. #divorce#bitterex#readytosignthesepapers#readytomoveforwardcompletely#screenshotapproved
Boundaries are so important - but if we have high inflexible walls that keep our partners out and keep us locked in - that will cause issues
Having healthy boundaries that keep us safe - but also allow others to reach us - mean that our relationships can flourish and grow

It's crazy how quick ALL that hard work can just disappear! I worked so hard to get my body fit and toned all my 30 minute workouts and eating proper foods! .
To be honest, I haven't been consistent with anything, just kind of doing my thing... is it WORKING? UMMM NO! I feel extremely fluffy, I feel completely uncomfortable in my day to day clothes, I don't feel like me, full of energy.
Today, I'm going back to my roots where I started 3 years ago! 30 minute workouts, property proportioned foods, my daily dose of superfoods!!! .
End of story.
Tomorrow is the day!! Tune in as we kick off the 30 Day Challenge tomorrow at 12:30 pm EST LIVE on the DivorceForce facebook page. You get to improve your life AND win prizes!!! What could be better than that?!?!!!!
I’m going to get real for a second because this has been on my mind a lot lately. Prior to my divorce, the idea of co-parenting scared the crap out me. The idea that I wouldn’t have my daughter everyday, that I wouldn’t be present for some of her milestones and that I wouldn’t get to have her every holiday broke my heart. But what really scared me was knowing that one day, her dad would meet someone and my daughter would have another woman in her life playing the role of step mom. I was scared that maybe this new woman would be mean to my daughter or maybe my daughter would love this new woman more than me. This used to keep me up at night. Give me anxiety, and flat out stress me out! And then, one day it happened. My daughter came home from her dads talking about his new friend and I remember thinking this is where I should feel upset, but I wasn’t. I had this weird sense of calm as I asked my daughter “Is your daddy happy?” And she simply replied “yes”. Then I asked “is daddy’s new friend nice to you?” And she says “yes” and it was at that moment it hit me, her dad can be a better dad when he’s happy and as long as this woman is playing a positive role in her life, why should It matter who’s in my daughters life, building a healthy relationship with her? I’m happy my daughter gets see me happy, and her dad happy because she had to spend so many years seeing us at war with each other, it’s so nice knowing she finally can see us at peace in our own, separate lives. #coparenting#divorce#movingon
Panto is done and dusted for another year!
Thank you to everyone who joined in the fun to support a great cause and particularly all of you who came to support us on the night!
Here are a few of my favourite snaps but I am sure we will be back with more soon along with a fundraising tally!! Now to return to ‘normal life as a lawyer!’ .
Started this beautiful Sunday with a 5 mile race. I channel a lot of my stress, anger, and frustration into fitness. It’s such a healthy habit and one I highly suggest, especially for someone going through divorce or another difficult time in life. Don’t let it tear you down, use the pain to make yourself stronger. #selfcare#running#runnersofinstagram#divorce#singlemom#healthychoices
Sometimes it’s hard to live inside my own skin.
Within the first couple months of this year, my heart was broken. And that came on the heels of a divorce the year prior.
Month after month following the heartbreak I’ve continued to bravely put myself out there. I’ve been bruised and broken repeatedly each time.
The truth isn’t that I’m afraid to be alone. The real, raw, unvarnished truth is that I’m afraid I’ll never be anything but...
I am not okay.
I need more love than I’ve ever been given. I have more love in me to give than anyone wants, and it’s breaking me...
When we are able to see our emotional pain as equally valid to the physical kind, we can then begin to treat it accordingly.
