TWR 057: How to Overcome the Fears of Divorce

Divorce is a very challenging situation that happens for a great number of couples. It’s a very long process, it’s a very draining decision to make, and when we see ourselves taking steps towards the separation, we suffer even more realizing that it’s for real. Not only do the emotions get overwhelming, we also deal with fears of all kinds. Fear of loneliness, fear of lack of support, financial fear, and the list goes on and on.

In this episode of The Wellness Revolution Podcast, Amber gets really personal to tell you her experience with her divorce and how she was able to overcome so many fears that were brought to surface all of a sudden. Amber explains that, even though she always had a profession and was very safe financially, she had to shift her mindset and internalize that from that moment on, she would take care of herself. Tune in!
