Divorce Conversations for Women

Jan 22, 2021

In this episode Rhonda talks to Chidima Anusiem, a Best Selling Author and a Divorce Coach, about abusive relationships and how to find true freedom and joy.

Chidima shares several tips to get through a divorce

  1. You have to know you’ve made the best decision for yourself and your family
  2. Stand up for yourself and make your own opinion about yourself
  3. Lean into your pain. You’ll find some jewels there.

You don’t deserve to be abused. You’re already everything you want to be. Just know you’re originally who you are, and you’re beautiful that way - a diamond in the rough. Maybe you don’t see it right away, but diamond is formed under pressure. Make the best out of a bad situation because divorce is an opportunity for self discovery and loving yourself. Loving yourself is one of the greatest things you could do.
