In part 1 of this 2 part episode with our returning guest Elisheva Liss, we discuss the views shared and seen by ourselves and society regarding divorce. Elisheva is a licensed psychotherapist whose training is in marriage and family therapy, and also treats individuals and couples. Sometimes divorce is necessary and sometimes the topic is broached because of frustration and stress. When working it out for legitimate reasons becomes impossible, the stigma and perception may be too much to bear. Still, giving it another shot at making peace is often the best option if not only to be certain that you gave it your all and face regret later.
As Hope to Recharge completes its 3rd year and 200th episode, we take a moment to recognize past achievements and accomplishments and give gratitude to those who helped reach this milestone. Although the journey of healing was treacherous and laden with the possibility of defeat, we continue to discuss and practice the essential tools that allow us to move forward each day.

Growth and appreciation are a constant and required focus to continue along the journey of recovery and noticing the little details are a critical tool to developing a healthy gratitude mindset.

As Matana faces different hectic life events, she navigates from important to more important. Often, we neglect important items for things that are more important, and that’s ok. Feeling unaccomplished or missing out on goals can often lead to disappointment but we need to also focus on downtime.
