For years, Altovise Pelzer carried around a secret that she had kept concealed from everybody. No one knew, not even her mother. It wasn't until she felt compelled to share it with her daughter that Altovise went from silence to finding and loving her voice. In this, our second episode in the Recovering From Divorce Series, Altovise shares her story of molestation, being evicted from her home, going through a divorce and being a people pleaser. But most of all, she shares her journey of enoughness and the unexpected full circle that brought her face-to-face with her ex-husband.
In this episode, Altovise talks about:
Things that made us go hmmm
“Motivation gets you over the hump, education helps prevent you from making mistakes someone else makes.”
“ We have to understand people have bad days. People have emotions moment, but you have to be able to love them through it. You have to be able to understand their perspective. And once you understand then you can properly communicate with someone.”
“The first time I had to say no was to me saying no to having a pity party.”
“I can’t change other people, I can change me”
“I would have thought it made her [your daughter] feel horrified. Now that I think about it, it probably gave her permission to share more.”
“I am learning to say ‘no’ without having to explain it, without having to censor myself, or judge myself.”
“ It’s not saying no to people per se, it’s saying no to the people pleaser.”
“Your secret sauce is you.”
