Conscious Uncoupling

“When I separated from my husband in 2003, I thought I did it consciously”

I gave, forgave and was generous to a fault. Katherine’s work made me realize that my idea of a conscious breakup was actually self-abandonment and lots of emotional bypassing—just to keep the peace for my boys. I was trying to create peace and harmony from a void. From the outside, it looked as if I had everything together, but I was depleted and far from healed. 
Conscious Uncoupling brought me to a place of self-responsibility; it helped me graduate from the beliefs that had co-created that relationship dynamic to begin with. 
Today, I genuinely know how to take deep and loving care of myself, create healthy boundaries, honor my feelings and needs and give from a space of authentic self-love. All my relationships have shifted since because I have finally learned to live and love better.
