Hello! I’m Rachel Ruby, and I’m glad you’re here.
Divorce can be one of the most challenging experiences in a person’s life. It certainly was for me.
My life was turned upside-down when I divorced in midlife after almost 30 years of marriage. It was a time of great fear, uncertainty and self-doubt. I went through an incredible range of emotions—sadness, anger, confusion, fear, blaming, shame, and so much more.
But at some point I began to realize that, far from being a catastrophe, this could be a time of incredible growth and life-changing epiphanies…if I opened my heart and allowed that growth to happen.
This shift in mindset led to a major awakening experience, in which I found myself again, after feeling lost for so long. This awakening was a process that took time and a journey through darkness, not knowing when I would see the light but trusting that it would come.
My journey is ongoing, as yours will be, and there are still mountains to climb and decisions to make that are challenging, but I now know that I am free to make those choices and decisions in the way that is best for me.
The experience was worth it beyond my wildest dreams, and I revel in the beauty that surrounds me every day. I know I can do anything. And so can you.
