Lucy Bloom's Divorce: Redefining Failure & Finding Freedom
Play • 27 min

After making the "failure" of getting married young to the wrong man, Lucy Bloom finds empowerment in her divorce, ditches society's judgement, and discovers the joys of living near the beach, as she learns to make decisions based on what she wants.

Lucy Bloom is an author, speaker and writer who openly talks about her divorce and how it was not a failure. She has since embraced the opportunity to write her own next chapter, and encourages others to do the same.

After twenty years of marriage, her husband left her for another woman, taking the decision to separate out of her hands. Rather than letting it be a failure, she saw it as an opportunity for growth - to make decisions that would make her happy. She moved to the beach, surrounded herself with supportive friends, and prioritised her children. After eight years of navigating the pain of divorce, Lucy has learned that it is her race to run and that society's expectations should not dictate her decisions. She is now living a life of freedom and joy near the ocean.
