Nicole DiLorenzo, AKA Stepmom Warrior
I met my husband and didn’t blink an eye when he told me had kids, but I knew having an ex-wife could lead to some challenges. I grew up with two families, having both a stepmom and stepdad. I also had years of experience working with children. My educational experience revolves around children, teaching, and studying social problems. I really thought this stepmom role would be a cakewalk. Wow…was I wrong…
My stepmom role was a rollercoaster of emotions. Feelings emerged that I had never experienced. Yes, I felt blessed with a supportive husband/best friend/teammate. I felt proud of being a stepmom of two awesome girls, but every day I was challenged in this role. I felt like no one understood what I was going through.
I’ve learned a lot in the past years. Through continuous learning and growth, I now embrace my stepmom role with confidence. I continue to gain knowledge and skills as I make my way through my stepmom journey.
One thing I’ve learned on my journey is that the truth hurts, but it can also heal. I’ve encountered many truth bombs on my journey which have facilitated major growth in my life and marriage all because I was vulnerable and receptive to learning.
If you’re in a stepfamily role and you’re seeking support or positive solutions to facilitate growth in your life, then you’re in the right place. I’m passionate about paying it forward by connecting with stepparents and stepchildren to help them transform their experience.
