Pretty Divorce | Dr. Joan speaks with Marie Mosley Part 1

A divorce does not always have to be riddled with bitterness and animosity. It can be approached with a focus on personal growth and embracing the positive side rather than the negative. By redirecting one’s energy towards self-discovery and exploring new opportunities in life, now that the constraints of that relationship no longer exist, one can lean into oneself, find strength, resilience, and the potential to accomplish great things in their newfound independence, and be pretty divorce.

In this episode of Hey, I’m Listening, Dr. Joan speaks with Marie Mosley about her book Pretty Divorce
