Feeling Alone and Abandoned
The emotions and challenges of midlife divorce are more painful than you can even imagine. You feel alone and abandoned in a new, frightening world that is incomprehensible and devastating. Friends and family often don’t know how to help. Churches often don’t step up. All of the rules have changed, and emotions are driving the chaos.
Once you realize that what you feel isn’t wrong or abnormal, the divorce recovery journey becomes easier to handle. Unfortunately, the midlife and late-life divorce rate has skyrocketed, and this trend is predicted to continue. The only comfort in this, is that there are more people to walk with you as you encourage and support each other on this path. Your compassion will also grow as you realize that you are not alone on this life-changing journey.
Finding Other Women
There is a huge sense of relief when you connect with other women going through these same challenges. Realizing that you aren’t the only one struggling with divorce recovery is a powerful connection. This is where MDR classes come into full play. Suzy has done an exceptional job of touching the hearts, minds and souls of women across the world who are hurting, but don’t know where to start in the healing process.
The Midlife Divorce Recovery resources have helped women from different backgrounds, walks of life, and from locations around the world. The program helps both those who are at the beginning of the process and those post-divorce who are still struggling to let go of the pain. Women from 24-83 years old have used the MDR resources.
Committing To A New Life
A commitment to oneself and to others is the biggest motivator to divorce healing. It is the best path forward. The key is to be committed to personal change and transformation. This happens as you walk forward with others who not only understand and feel your pain, but who are also supporting your recovery. When you are in a confidential situation, week after week, where you are encouraged to say exactly what you need in order to release your pain and start rebuilding your life, you are in the right place!
Midlife Divorce Recovery goes right to the heart of the hurt, slowly revealing personal fears that may be holding women back from real healing and transformation. The commitment to each other and to the work encourages the healing process. These women are reminded that each one of them is uniquely and wonderfully made, and are given tools and resources to grow into their best selves. The women, together, commit to realizing their own individual dreams, as they also empower each other on this path to the lives they all want and deserve!
Support is Available
It has been a privilege to personally see more than 160 women walk into Midlife Divorce Recovery classes for healing (even on Zoom). When they take the first step to join us, their eyes often reveal sadness, and they seem broken, ashamed and scared. Yet, when they choose their seats and make a decision to join this community of women, they embark on a ride that will positively impact their lives and their attitude toward themselves forever.
I highly recommend reviewing the resources and programs available through Midlife Divorce Recovery so you can join others who are getting RADiCAL … Rising Above Divorce in Confidence And Love!
