“After I first moved out, I literally had no idea what I truly liked and disliked anymore,” said Maureen. “It was as if my constructs of who I am, were gone. I bought green grapes only to discover I really only like red grapes. If I was buying food for myself that I didn’t like, how many other things in my life were not true reflections of myself? “All of a sudden so many decisions felt paramount. The number of things I had to decide on was overwhelming. AND I had the power to make these decisions all by myself now, which is something I hadn’t felt in my marriage. “You see, during my marriage I had been living an illusion. I was kind of dead to life, just walking through it—you know, 2.5 kids and a dog kind of thing. I was unhappy, only I couldn’t really tell you why. Since all my basic needs were being met, I wasn’t very uncomfortable, but I also wasn’t fully ME.” Many women I speak with can relate to Maureen. As we move through our divorce, it’s by taking small steps that we strengthen that muscle of determination to declare all of who we are to the world. Each stepping stone is a rite of passage itself.
