Lessons From the End of a Marriage

A “How to Thrive” Guide After Divorce

The Importance of Love Mentors

Sharing is caring!

RelationshipsI have always tried to surround myself with mentors to help me grow in the various areas of my life.  I have people I look towards to help me improve as a teacher, others that help me move towards my wellness aspirations, and yet others I turn to for practical advice.  As my divorce unfolded, I realized I had an opening for a new type of coach:  a love mentor.

One of the happy side effects of undergoing a major life transition is that people feel comfortable sharing their own stories.  As I began to hear some of the love and marriage stories from the people in my life, I was shocked to find that many of them had been through divorce and love trauma in a former, yet unrevealed, life.  I heard the stories of betrayal, loss, and despair, yet I could look at their lives, filled with joy and, in many cases, a new relationship that had persisted over many years.

In those dark days when I wondered if I could ever love again, I found inspiration from my love mentors.  When I felt discouraged that I spent 16 years heading to a dead end, I gazed upon the decades many of them had spent with their new loves.  I saw how love could look different that what I had known, but still be beautiful.  I heard about the challenges and joys in second marriages.  My love mentors helped me find wisdom and hope through their stories.
