The ability to move on after your divorce entails the letting go of the past with its emotional baggage and negative emotions. If you can accomplish this feat then the heavy burdens you have been carrying will lift and you will experience the liberation of freedom: the ability to move unimpeded towards whatever goal you establish for yourself.

Ask yourself: what is the price I am paying in holding onto what no longer exists? What is the cost of being chained to my negative emotions and perspective? Is it costing me my health? My peace of mind? My relationship with my children? My happiness? My optimism and enthusiasm for life? I assure you that the price you pay is very, very high and it is you alone, not your ex, that pays that price.

How would you feel if you were free of all that negative stuff? Would you feel the world contains new possibilities and opportunities for you? Would you feel light? Would your body and heart stop aching? Would you be able to be happy again? Would you have renewed energy? How would freedom feel for you?

Divorce and Life Coach Shelley Stile explains the importance of acceptance and letting go during this episode of Divorce Recovery.  For more information on Shelley Stile, visit her website at www.LifeAfterYourDivorce.com.

If you are going through a divorce, chances are you've heard some negative thoughts running through your head.  Am I good enough?  Was this my Fault?  Will I ever find another partner?  Many going through a divorce experience these types of thoughts early on during the grief phase and this is quite normal and understandable.  But If you can't seem to move beyond these thoughts, it's time to explore them and ask yourself are my feelings and interpretations of my situation really true?  More times than not you'll discover these thoughts are not your reality but rather the meaning you have attached to them.

In this episode of Divorce Recovery, Shelley Stile shows us how to sort fact from fiction and helps us to see the truth.  By doing this, we empower ourselves to see the reality or our situation and can begin to let go of negative self talk.  Divorce is an opportunity for personal growth and Shelley provides us with tips to feel better mentally and physically during this tough time and helps us to discover our true reality.

In this episode of Divorce recovery with Shelley Stile, we explore Unenforceable Expectations as they relate to divorce and life in general.

Expectations or something we expect to go our way, can lead to resentment and disappointment. Our desire to expect everything to go our way can even be a form of self-sabotage.

As an example of Unenforceable Expectations, have you ever:

·     Expected your ex to treat you with kindness and respect?

·     Expected your ex to be fair regarding your financial settlement?

·     Expected you ex to be a wonderful father or mother to your children?

·     Expected the judge and mediator to see things your way?

So why do we expect so much from our ex, family and friends? Is this type of expectation a form of control?

Shelly Stile addresses these questions and explains how to accept the "Nature of Life", you'll have good days and bad. Your Self-imposed impossible expectations are a major source of your inability to let go of the pain of your divorce and move forward. This concept does not just apply to divorce recovery. It applies to all of life.

This program will help you to recognize and deal with any unenforceable expectations you may be having and get you on the path to a healthy mindset.
