The Art of Letting Go


Leaving a long term relationship can be terrifying. You might question whether it’s the right decision, find yourself betting on how much longer you can last in it, or questioning who exactly you are without that person around anymore. This process can be time-consuming and laborious, but Jill Sherer Murray teaches us that while it is at times a terrifying, heart-wrenching process, the reward of knowing that you can be happy no matter what will always be worth it.

In this episode of the Divorce Doctor Podcast, I had the pleasure of speaking with award-winning author and journalist, TEDx speaker, and founder of “Let Go For It,” Jill Sherer Murray. Jill works through her brand “Let Go For It” to help women let go of whatever’s holding them back so they can live the life they’ve deserved all along.

In our discussion, Jill and I discuss the ordeal of trusting yourself enough to let go of relationships that are holding you back. We also discuss the importance of choosing yourself, and why it shouldn’t be considered a selfish or inconsiderate act!
