Thriving After Divorce: Transforming Your Life When a Relationship Ends

Winner of The National Best Books 2010 Award in Self-Help: Relationships Category

The end of a significant relationship has the potential to create a powerful change in one’s life, daily habits, and even in one’s personal identity. In Thriving After Divorce, author and relationship coach Tonja Weimer offers readers a grounded approach to growing through the challenging life transitions that arise from the breaking of one of our most defining partnerships.

Through the expressive and powerful metaphor of the TAO—Take, Action, and Outcome— Weimer’s book will guide readers in crossing to a safe place by showing how to put one’s actions in line with one’s needs for positive outcomes that will strengthen and prepare the heart for a new path. The key to a successful transition is in learning how to create a new authentic relationship with the partner in the absence of shared romantic love. This new relationship allows a continuation of combined goals, building and sustaining necessary boundaries, and guidelines for new interactions.

Weimer shows readers how to deal with shared responsibilities involving children, mutual business interests, the care of family members, and other situations that require both parties to work together in the new space of the relationship. Thriving After Divorce encourages separated partners to build interconnectedness and healthy relationships, while at the same time working toward an independent, fulfilling life.
