How My Mess Gave Me a Message
I knew I would eventually write about this but didn’t know when or how. To be quite honest, I felt ashamed. I also felt fear. How will people react? Will I be judged? How will it change people’s perspective of me? Will it damage my credibility? Weaken my message? Those who are closest to me, my family and friends already know. They walked me through it several years ago. For them, it is such a rearview mirror event. But my clients don’t know. Neither do you, followers of my blog. Why? Because I wasn’t ready to talk about it yet. But I am now. It may not seem like a big deal to many because it is so common. Yet for me, it was a mess. So here it is. Several years ago I experienced divorce. Out of respect to the privacy of my children and former spouse, I will end the story here. Needless to say, it was the messiest event in my life. At the time, I was in a different career. I had no idea I would end up in a profession helping couples develop healthy relationships. Looking back I can see how walking through my mess gave me a message.
