The last couple of weeks have brought to our attention something we’ve been preparing you for since March.
Since the moment quarantine began, we’ve been anticipating a trend of more divorces to sweep the nation — and, actually, the world — in the months to follow. Unfortunately, it seems we were right.
Just within this past week, multiple high-profile relationships have announced their plans to split up, all citing circumstances that just could no longer be ignored during quarantine.
We’ve spoken with many women over the past several weeks who are feeling the exact same way in their relationship.
Here’s the thing).
Any issue that has come up in a relationship during this time was there before the pandemic. It’s simply been amplified because you can no longer escape it or distract yourself from facing it.
The financial stress, fear of the unknown, health complications, overwhelm and anxiety that we’ve faced over these last several months, coupled with underlying problems in a relationship, are enough to push anyone over the edge.
Quarantine has been the last straw in the proverbial bucket.
That being said, calling it quits is not the only option!
It’s heartbreaking, because no one gets married expecting to get divorced, and we know that divorce comes with a lot of financial and emotional expenses, on top of everything else.
Ending a long-term relationship is a big deal, sometimes costing upwards of $20,000-$30,000 in legal expenses, not to mention the work of splitting your assets, selling your home, and the strain it puts on the family unit and kids.
Now, we’re not saying that divorce or breaking up isn’t sometimes the best option, but it’s usually not, and it’s definitely not the only option.
On the spectrum between the most passionate, loving relationship and ending it altogether, there’s something in the middle – and that’s the opportunity to transform the relationship.
So, if there is another option, why not try doing the Heartwork?
When you do, everything transforms.
And, when we say “everything,” we mean that the relationship transforms, as well as the family dynamics, work relationships, and opportunities that open up.
Because you don’t just work on the relationship – you transform yourself in the process!
Last week, one of our clients said, “I’m so grateful I’m going through this program right now because I’m hearing what my friends are going through who aren’t getting support.”
When you choose to get support, when you choose to see that it may be you that’s getting in the way of your own happiness, you allow yourself to recreate your marriage or relationship in a way that didn’t exist before.
I remember one day, back when Ric and I were struggling in our relationship. I had lost my temper, thrown food in his car and he’d left. (Wow, we’ve come a long way from that!)
I remember thinking, “It’s got to be easier to be by myself!”
I also remember knowing that if I was going to make the decision to call it quits, then I was going to need to do everything I could do to make it work. And I knew I hadn’t done that yet.
Sixteen years later, I’m soooooo glad I chose to figure out what wasn’t working and to do what I needed to do to transform myself from the inside out, which completely transformed my relationship!
So, what about you?
On a scale of 1 to 10 where is your relationship?
Has the pressure of the last few months brought up those underlying issues that it’s time to address?
Have you caught yourself wondering if it would be easier to just throw in the towel?
Do you feel like you’ve done everything you can to make it work?
If you haven’t talked to us, you haven’t done everything.
If you’ve found yourself wondering, “Are they talking to me?”, yes we are, and this is for you.
If, as you’ve been reading, you’ve been thinking, “I wonder if this would work for me?” or maybe even, “I wonder if it still wouldn’t work,” we invite you to book a call.
Let’s have a conversation about what’s going on for you and your relationship, what your options are, and how you can turn things around.
Here’s what we know: We are experts in relationships, and our mission is for every woman — including YOU — to be in the passionate, loving, relationship of her dreams.
We also know that if you do nothing, nothing changes.
Let us be there for you.
It could save your relationship.
Lots of love,
