Boo! This Halloween, what is more spooky than having your ex inherit all of your money if you die?

Going Public About Your Divorce: Who, When and What to Tell

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Going Public About Your Divorce: Who, When and What to Tell

In the early stages of divorce we experience a powerful emotional sting. Coming to terms with the fact that divorce IS part of your reality often happens when you begin to tell others about it. Today we discuss telling your spouse, children, family, friends and others. We look at the fears and resistance that arises and the questions that you want to ask yourself prior to telling.

 

Being clear on what you want to say and who you are ready to tell and what your boundaries are around discussing this tender topic will enable you to take this step with greater ease. Everyone will have their own emotional reaction. Preparing for that as well is key to managing your own needs and peace. Throughout the process, being aware, making conscious decisions and setting an intention for how you want your divorce to unfold will enable you to feel empowered, stay calm and negotiate effectively. Tune in today!
