The traumatic divorce scenario
I was traumatized by my divorce for many, many, many years and I didn’t even know that I was traumatized. I honestly had no idea what was going on. The only thing I remember simply is that when I got separated, I honestly thought it was just, he goes his way, I go my way, we don’t fit well as a married couple so, let’s just go on with our lives. Little did I know that I was so naïve. Little did I know that I did not understand what was about to come my way. I had no idea that my whole life was going to turn upside down. I had no idea that the stress would be so overwhelming that I ended up sick every single year for six years in a row.
The divorce trauma continued…
When I ended up in the hospital every single year for something else. It was just becoming like something subtle to think, more serious, more serious, more serious, more serious until a certain point it was the cancer scare that blew me away. And from that moment on, I said, oh my God, “Ravit, time to do a reshift here. You cannot go on with your life like this”. And it was only when I started to just sort of understand that I was just in a game. And I started to treat it like an adventure. You know, how do you get yourself out of this door? How do you get yourself out of that mess? And I started to lighten up the stress and the emotional attachment that I had to every situation.
And when that started to happen, my whole life started changing. So, from that on, I was no longer reacting and exploding to situations. I was just trying to stay as cool as a pickle, as best as I could and try to just RESPOND to situations. And so, cases, just another game, it’s just another tactic.

It’s another one of those stupid things. Let’s just deal with it. I know I’ll get through it. And I moved on. It was only from the point where I started to take this more as a game rather than overly serious and overly stressful that my health started to change. For years and years and years, not only was my health up and down, I was gaining weight, losing weight, gaining weight, losing weight, gaining weight, losing weight, like everything physically was showing me all the signs that things were NOT OK. And that I HAD TO CHANGE. And luckily, I changed things right at the time before anything very, very serious, really start to hit my health.
Thank God that everything was okay from that point on. And I was totally fine because I started to realize that I had to change. It was all about ME. It was about how “I” was reacting, how “I” was responding. And how was “I” was showing up in this divorce and I didn’t know that at the beginning. So, if you want to avoid what I went through.
