I thought I had met the man of my dreams. Nine months later, I married him. That dream relationship soon became a nightmare, and after spending nearly 10 years in an emotionally abusive marriage, I finally found the courage to leave. But I did more than just walk out the door. I set out on a mission to take all the lessons I learned from marriage, motherhood, and divorce, and share them with other women. In this memoir, I discuss the 15 most important relationship lessons I learned. It is my hope that other women will be inspired, empowered, and motivated to fully embrace themselves and their lives as they embark upon their own journeys toward self-discovery or re-discovery.
