Negative mind chatter can be rooted from our childhood.  During extreme stress, such as going through a divorce, our emotions have the ability to resurface with feelings of insecurity or not being "good enough", only now this negative self chatter is amplified.

In this epidsode of Divorce Recovery with Shelley Stile, Divorce Recovery/Life Coach Shelley Stile shows us ways to turn off the negative self talk and train ourselves to focus on building a positive fantastic future.

Battles over custody and related issues that are fueled by a personality disordered spouse can be the most frustrating of all wars.  The judges regularly get conned by the personality disordered spouse who makes nice in front of the judge; the other spouse who is angry and upset appears to be the problem.  Emily has worked with a number of these cases, trying to extricate the victimized spouse – and overcoming the frustration which many experience.  Tough cases, but she likes the challenge.

Topics in this program include:

  • ·         Insight into personality disorder
  • ·         How to deal with a persistent blamer, and managing within the legal system

Divorce Coach, Shelley Stile discusses the grieving process during this episode.

The hardest part of a loss is learning to accept this new reality and operate within the new geography. Nonetheless, it can and must be done. Once we have achieved a sense of closure, we can move forward. In every ending there is a new beginning but first we must accept the ending.

The loss involved in a divorce is as painful as a death. In many ways it is a death of an entire way of life. But what we need to know is this: it is not so much what happens to us in life, rather it is how we handle what happens to us that is important.

In this program, Shelley coaches us through:

  • The Stages of Grieving
  • How to Overcome Your Divorce and Create a Bright Future
  • Dealing with Anger and Negative Emotions
  • The Signs of Depression after Divorce
  • Positive Parenting for the Sake of the Kids
  • And much more
