  1. I love this, Lisa. You SO rock. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Great post. I am glad that you mention that second frustrating dip because it can be depressingly soul-destroying. It is great that you are getting that message out there “this is NORMAL”. Thanks..

    • It is normal:) But when you experience it…ouch! I see time and time again people on that initial upward climb thinking they have managed to escape the nastiness of divorce and then “wham,” it hits them. It’s important to know it’s common and not a permanent downward slide.

  3. Such an amazing way to put everything..Great work Lisa (as always..lol)
    If I would have read this a month or two ago I would not have believed it. But now that’s it’s been almost a year separated from the STBXW I fully understand and get it.
    Thanks again for your wonderful writing I love it.

    Thank you Lisa for showing and verbalizing these steps on the roadmap. One thing I’m thankful for the illustration, or chart, it’s helped me to see a progression and to realize that at least through this situation – no matter the ups/downs or forwards/backwards I am moving and making progress and the most hopeful thing is that anywhere I may be on this healing journey at least in this, my divorce, I’ll NEVER fall so far back as to be at point A…B maybe but not A!

    • It’s so easy to zoom in on the ups and downs of the day to day that we lose sight of the overall picture. You’ll never be at A again and even if you find yourself at B, you’ve traveled the road before and you’re stronger now. You got this!:)

    […] The journey of divorce is an arduous one, taking much longer and with more setbacks than any of us imagined before we took that first step. It has many moments of false-hope when we think the worst is behind us, only to find that we are snapped back yet again to the depths of hopelessness. […]
