Episode Summary:

Welcome back to Let the Rest Burn, this episode is the second half of my own divorce story. I wanted to give you all a pause, even if you're listening to it back to back because there is a very specific split here for me. There is life before this moment and life after this moment, I reached a threshold, that there was no turning back on. So for those of you that are wondering whether or not you should leave, or if it's the right time, this episode is for you, friend. After listening, I encourage you to think about your threshold and what that actually is. I’m in your corner.
