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.

Unenforceable Expectations during Divorce

By admin · Comments Comments Off

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.

The Grieving Process During Divorce

By admin · Comments Comments Off

Picking Up the Pieces and Moving On with Your Life

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.
