Episode 6 – Desi divorce discussion – Taking the driver’s seat
July 21, 2022

“Take charge of your attitude. Don’t let someone else choose it for you” ~ Dale Carnegie

In this fabulous fourth interview in the Desi Divorce Discussion series, I’m speaking with Neha, who read my book, Rewriting My Happily Ever After – a memoir of divorce and discovery, and then connected with me.

Neha and I have a few things in common. She is a single mom who lives in Hyderabad, India and whose daughter is her main pillar of support. Sounds familiar? Those who have read my book will know the overlapping themes of our life right away.

Like many of her generation, Neha was brought up to believe that marriage is integral to your life and that one always needs to make it work. Her wedding was arranged through known family members and not surprisingly, it took a lot of soul searching before Neha could take the decision to leave after almost twenty years.

Overcoming self-doubt and her self-confessed devotion to perfection has taken time and a lot of effort but you can hear the strength of conviction in Neha’s voice as she candidly talks about her journey.

Listen to Neha’s inspiring story of figuratively taking the driver’s seat at a vulnerable moment knowing that she needs to take charge of her life and make things happen. Finding out what you are capable of and what you need to let go are both empowering actions that Neha has taken.

Today Neha has the support, respect and admiration of her family and friends as she boldly navigates her life and also gives back to society through a school that she runs.

Whether you are thinking about divorce, have left an unhappy marriage or are curious about how women fare after divorce, do listen and let me know your thoughts.
