With a history of graduating from an ivy league school and being a Wall St financial powerhouse and global traveler, Kristen was stopped in her tracks as she began bearing children and dealing with the abuse of her narcissistic husband. Kristen shares the complexities of letting go of her career to raise their children only to feel alone being a new parent while facing the difficulties of living with a narcissist.   As Kristen grew back into her self confidence and became expecting and accepting of how her ex behaves as a co-parent, she was able to let go of her resistance and invest in the children as her central priority, regardless of how dad shows up.   Now, a few years post divorce, Kristen is now enjoying her free weekends while the kids are with dad and her new and growing social circle.
