Unenforceable Expectations during DivorceBy
(Listener Note: This is Episode #3 of this ten-part series by Shelley Stile. To take full advantage of this series, please listen to the episodes in their proper order).
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.
