Sunshine and Infidelity: My Divorce Story

About a month ago I flew to New York to be a guest on my favorite podcast about divorce: Happy Never After.

I had an amazing time recording with Mara Marek and Andrew Collins. They were pros, and made me feel so comfortable.

I vowed to myself before we recorded that I wanted to be as real and open about my story as I could be.

After listening, I believe I did just that.

I got real about getting married because I felt like it was what I should do versus what I wanted to do.
I opened up about cheating on my ex-husband because I didn’t believe there was any other way to get out of the relationship.
I shared how much I was getting in my own head when trying to date after my divorce and how I almost missed out on an amazing person because of it. 

It was hard to relive those moments.

It was hard to be vulnerable about the darkest parts of my life.
It was hard to own up to my own faults and imperfections.
It was hard to remember how lost and damaged and fucked up I felt.

But even with all of that, I am SO proud.

I’m proud of how open, honest, and real I was.
I’m proud that I didn’t hold back on my story — even the parts that make me feel vulnerable.
I’m proud that every single day, I’m working my ass off to make sure that women going through divorce don’t feel so alone.

Hearing myself talk about my darkest days reminds me of how far I’ve come, and why I do what I do.

I want to share my journey with you.
