We all have a tendency to see ourselves from a surface perspective, taking family, friendships, and lifestyle into account. But what happens when we strip outside factors away? Who are we, truly, underneath? Who are we when our relationship status changes, when we’re “divorced” instead of “married?”
Life and relationship transition coach Leah Morris is the founder of Life Remade. It’s her mission to help people authentically acknowledge their thoughts, feelings, and emotions, using an equal mix of empathy and accountability. Whether you’re struggling with finding your inner self after divorce or if you’re simply hoping to gain more insight into who you are, this episode is for you.
In This Episode
Leah and Jennifer enjoy a heartfelt conversation about the way divorce and the transitions surrounding it can completely transform our lives. After her own divorce, Leah realized that she wanted to help others navigate the changes that accompany the end of a marriage. Key takeaways include:
How changes that come with divorce happen to our inner and outer beings, and how those changes affect all the relationships we have – with family, children, friends, and more.
Although rifts are painful, they can be catalysts that lead to transformative self-discovery.
Understanding the importance of doing the “hard work” associated with any loss or change in relationship status.
How our identities are often hinged on everything except ourselves: Our supporting roles in the lives of spouses, children, friends, siblings, and parents tend to define us on the surface.
The importance of taking responsibility for embracing what it is that we want, and who we really want to be. While we can continue to care for others, we need to prioritize inward focus.
How unpacking thoughts, feelings, and emotions can help us get to the root of who we are, how we came to be this way, and which steps we can take to move further toward becoming our authentic selves.
Why it’s important to ask ourselves questions that lead to deep, personal insight about the choices we have made. We often gaslight and abandon ourselves by avoiding the true reasons for our circumstances.
How forgiving ourselves for past mistakes can lead to pivotal moments that lead to greater self-discovery, growth, and transformation.
The importance of releasing old narratives so we can move forward with life on our own terms. It’s up to us to decide how to recreate ourselves and rebuild our lives. Timing, boundaries, and decisions are completely up to us; there’s no need to worry about social conventions or what others think.
How life coaching can help us understand what we want, bring us into alignment with our deepest desires, create actionable plans, and carry them out.
Clarity and truth come from clearing emotional “debris” from the past, so that our real, raw selves can emerge.
Tips for rebuilding a life that feels authentic, connected, and fulfilling, from the inside out.
