This is the story of a girl and her two big breakups. It's also about her profound journey inward. And her remarkable evolution in love. She personifies the notion that heartbreak should never be wasted.
She was married with a baby. And completely disconnected from herself, her spirit, and her husband. She wasn't happy. So she threw a bomb on her marriage. She cheated. It was a disaster. The breakup of her marriage was painful and messy. She used a lot of crutches to avoid feeling the feelings for a while. It was a terrible time that led to a really significant journey inward. She starting doing the work on herself.
She then found herself in a new relationship. A totally different kind of guy. Where her ex was dramatically emotionally involved, the new guy was refreshingly low key, almost unavailable. They dated for 4 years. They had a house together. It was exactly what she needed. Until it wasn't. Once she started to really open up, she could see that he wasn't able to go there with her. They broke up. But she did it completely differently this time. No mess. No drama. A kind, loving, gentle breakup.
Two really different guys. Two really different breakups. But they were both mirrors. Both taught her so much. And both helped her reconnect to lost parts of herself. And now she is with someone new. And she can feel that she is striking the balance. Because she is showing up with more of herself than she has before.
I love this story because you can so feel her evolution. She made such peace with her painful chapters and moves forward with grace. She wasted none of her heartbreak. She used it as an invitation to expand and reconnect. A total inspiration.
