Your children need you to be the best version of yourself... especially after a break-up.
you don't have autonomy
you don't have balance
you are under a lot of pressure
Sometimes you have to show up as both parents for your kids, even if your ex is still in the picture. It can be a lot to feel responsible for.
It's a lot of work without the credit. Even if you're remarried, your partner isn't fully able to understand your kids like you do so that can be a source of contention in your new relationship.
You have to do things on your own, but not really. It can feel like you are responsible for everything but you can't actually do anything by yourself.
it's time to heal
now more than ever, you need to focus on yourself.
The only person who can break your family patterns is you. If you don't, you'll be passing down the limiting beliefs that you struggled with. It's a huge responsibility, but you wouldn't be here if you didn't already feel the call to be the one to break the chains.

that's a lot of trauma
Just think about all of their experiences, their struggles, their sadness, their love, their joy. Your dna is filled with their stories, good and bad. You are their hope. You chose this family. And you can be the reason your kids and grandkids and great-grandkids have a better life.
do you ever feel like you're parenting your ex?
Have you noticed some of the behaviors that bothered you about your ex have been passed down to your kids? One of the most challenging aspects of shared parenting is being triggered by your kids for something they learned from their other parent.
that's exactly why I've created an entire course to help parents raise their children in a shared custody situation.
This online course will guide you through the complicated process of parenting after a break-up.
