An interview with Katherine Knight Life Coach
What is the biggest obstacle you have had to overcome in your life?
The breakdown of my marriage was straight after I gave birth to our son. My ex-husband was the perfect man and we had the perfect marriage if there is ever such a concept… When I fell pregnant at 38, he changed overnight. The day of our son’s birth, which resulted in emergency surgery to save us both, my ex decided to verbally abuse me on a hospital ward.. this abuse continued for months until one night when he threatened to kill me, I left in the middle of the night with my baby and car keys. I never went back. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done and despite the tears and heartache, I had to be strong for my son and show him how a woman should be treated. 8 years on, I’ve rebuilt my life, raised a beautiful son, and forgiven my ex.
What are your three top tips to overcome the obstacle?
- Have faith
- Believe in yourself. You can do anything you want, you just need to believe it and you can work to overcome any obstacle.
- Seek out a support network, who are on the same wavelength as you. Friends, family, colleagues.
