Joanie Winberg, a Certified Behavior Consultant and Personal/Business Coach specializing in divorce, can’t emphasize enough how important it is to take the time for your own personal development and learn healthy relationship skills before you enter into another relationship after a divorce or say “I DO” for the second time.
Becoming “single again” is scary and it may feel you are riding an emotional roller coaster ride. Unfortunately, being single again is never a neat, straight line. You take two steps forward and three steps back. One moment you feel like you are on top of the world and two minutes later you could easily be in a heap of tears, confused, and filled with fear.
I used to be where you are now! Having been a divorced single mom for fourteen years, I understand your challenges, frustrations and feelings. After my divorce, I not only had to adjust to being a single mom of two children, ages twelve and nine at the time, I also had to learn how to do the once shared to-do list on my own, plus start thinking about a new career. At times, I felt so overwhelmed and tired with all of the new challenges and wondered how I could do it all.
One day, I had a huge wake-up call when one of my friends said to me, “If you crumble, so will your children.” That’s all I needed to hear. From that day forward, I realized that I had to take care of myself and get the support I needed in order to be the best I could be for my children as well as for myself. Getting that help changed my life! Now I’m committed to guiding women through their transitions during and after divorce.
To keep moving FORWARD, I would encourage you to work with a life coach who specializes in divorce. She will offer a different kind of support than you can not get from your therapist, friends, and family. Your life coach will help you move gracefully into your future with appropriate boundaries, better communication skills, coping strategies, stress management, self care, and time management. If you have children, learning how to communication with your former spouse should be at the top of your list of things to learn. These same communication skills will also help when you when you start to date again.
