Such an important thing to realize. I was not able to transform my marriage and ended up asking for a divorce. That was the huge step and sacrifice I had to make for the freedom to pursue my biggest dreams. Surrounding myself with people who bring out the best in me was key. It had to start with weeding out the ones who felt toxic — despite the feelings of guilt and obligation. Hardest and best thing I ever did. Thanks for this.
