My First Marriage
My first marriage was to Glen. Like many young couples, our love was dramatic and intense. We met and married in six weeks. The next 10 years were wonderful, with many happy moments. We had four children and fostered a young boy. Our work was busy. We travelled in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Thailand, helping the less fortunate. We worked, lived and loved together. We were together the entire time.
After our move to Thailand, our relationship began to change. Glen travelled a lot for work, and I increasingly devoted myself to my work, which was with various charitable organisations in Bangkok. Then one day, during a work meeting with our boss, Glen suddenly blurted out that he was making plans to return to Australia, and expected myself and the children to stay in Thailand, because he knew that the children were happy and settled there, and he promised to support us. Talk about blindsided. I was horrified.
What followed was eight years of us receiving occasional counselling, sometimes living together, sometimes separately. Until, one day, Glen sat me down and just said he couldn’t do it anymore. 18 long years of marriage was over. I cried for myself, but mostly for my children.
It was not long after Neil proposed to me that I met Adèle in Thailand. Her course sounded perfect. I completed the 21 day Naked Divorce recovery program with her, and it made me realise how the disappointment, the anger, the frustration, had been all bottled up inside of me.
I also realised some hard truths, though. I hadn’t thought enough for him to support us financially. He didn’t support us financially, nor was he there for the children. I had also not communicated myself enough with him, and I certainly hadn’t encouraged the children to.
I came to the realisation that I had felt, at that time, that I was enough. But I wasn’t as a parent. How selfish of me.
Naked Divorce helped me to face my fears. It has good structure and tackled all areas of my life. I was finally free of all the bitterness and resentment that had built up in me over the years. Now that I was free, because of facing the past and having dealt with the older emotions, I felt a freedom and lightness, so that I could finally move forward. Neil and I got married in January 2017, and I couldn’t be more happy.
My paths continued to cross with Adèle’s, as we both were, and still are, working with charitable events and organisations here in Thailand.
It was a delightful surprise and total joy when she asked me to join her team as one of her Divorce Coaches, and I’ve been working as a Divorce Coach since late 2016. It really does work. Within 21 days, you can have a true transformation.
As long as you work hard, commit to the program, and are dedicated to having a change. There’s a link below for more information, and I really do look forward to working with you in the future.
