#Relationships. They are complicated things. Have we put too much expectation onto marriage? Now, thanks to fairytales and Disney, we expect some perfect thing, to be swept off our feet, to never argue.
Perhaps because of all the expectations we place on #marriage, divorce statistics are through the roof. Leanne Linsky (@itsreallymeleanne) is one of those statistics. Married at just 22 to her first serious boyfriend, Leanne found herself #divorced three years later. A few years later, she followed the same pattern: married again, and divorced within a few years. She was crushed. But she was also determined that it would not be the end of her.
After her second divorce, Leanne lay, in a fetal position, on her bedroom floor – she knew she had to make major changes. But she didn’t know what she wanted. Married so young, she didn’t know who she was. Determined to step into her true self, she started saying YES to everything. Her life began to shift. .
One of the things Leanne said a big YES to was standup comedy. Once she started taking the classes, she was hooked. Joining the two things she knew best, #comedy and divorce, Leanne launched Life Lafter Divorce two years ago, offering improv classes to fellow divorcees. Improv is about not caring, it’s about letting go—you never know what’s coming. If you try to control it, it fails…. A bit like a marriage! Leanne has created a safe space where people can let go of their pain, realize they are not alone, and use laughter to heal. .
