As a divorcée, I challenge you to be curious. Building a better outcome depends on your willingness to learn more about yourself and what you want out of life. I will continue to update my resource list with inspiring books, movies, articles, and podcasts. If you have any suggestions to add, please share them with our private Facebook group.
The Mastery of Love: A Practical Guide to the Art of the Relationship
By Don Miguel Ruiz
This book changed my life. A girlfriend recommended it, and after I read it, I knew that my first marriage did not serve me, and there was nothing I could do to piece it back together. Ruiz is a renowned spiritual teacher and author. I found his book very profound, and it ultimately challenged my views on the definition of a healthy relationship. It’s not an easy read, so have an open mind and stick with it.
The Five Love Languages
By Gary Chapman
Wow, I needed to read this book before entering any relationship! Chapman breaks down the way we express our love into five different languages. Before reading this book, I didn’t understand that I showed my love when I emptied the dishwasher and cleaned the house as an “act of service” kind of gal. You will discover tools to help you navigate how you show love and recognize how others show love, which ultimately leads to more fulfilling relationships.
I consider this the bible for relationships; it’s a must-read.
