Twice divorced, I am a
divorce coach for women.
Hi, I'm Laura Jelinek and I'm here to tell you that your divorce can be the most amazing catalyst to your best life ever! I know - I've done it.
My first marriage was when I was in my 20s. It taught me that divorce, even when amicable, is stressful and life changing.
Fast forward 12 years and I found myself navigating it again - this time with a young child in the mix. I knew the stress that was coming. And I knew that it would be something she would absorb if we weren't careful. And so, I swallowed my pride and I did a lot of scary things: I told my ex he mattered, that it was important to me that he always be in her life and that I'd always want what is best for him and for him to be happy.
You have no idea how that changed the tone of the divorce. It certainly wasn't all sunshine and rainbows, but it set us up for success in every sense. Today we enjoy a stress-free co-parenting relationship and our daughter knows she has two parents who love her and still care about one another, even though we don't sleep under the same roof.
Navigating the divorce and setting up a productive co-parenting situation is one thing. The bigger piece in divorce is how you, as an individual woman, move on from it.
I believe our world is at a turning point. More and more people are realizing that we need to come together to heal our humanity and our planet. What most people don't realize is that the skills needed to do this naturally reside within women. And these skills are also the same ones I used to navigate my divorce. Compassion. Trusting my feelings vs. viewing everything as winning or losing. And creating space - space for things to resolve on their own when possible. Space for others to do things vs. trying to always control the outcome. Space for my deepest wishes and desires to be nourished.
