Perhaps asking if you are ready to recover from divorce is a rhetorical question but so often what we say isn't really what we are feeling. We think we want to heal after divorce from the heart ache and yet the anger feels as though it's serving a purpose. In fact, anger does serve a purpose in releasing the tension and emotional turmoil that is felt when we aren't living in alignment. It is far healthier to release the anger than to hold it within. It is how we release it that makes all the difference.

Releasing means letting go, not giving a little away and needing to re-fuel by taking more in. Anger is not something you want to continually feed and expand. This can be done in many ways as well. Unreleased anger can result in illness, disease, lack of sleep, frustration, revenge, over-eating, self-indulgence, excessive drinking, depression and years of unhappiness. No one intentionally sets out to become this way. It is the lack of knowledge, support and desire to change, perhaps combined with learned beliefs that have been a pattern in life that feels comfortable that holds you back from changing and living with true purpose and joy.

There are stages of grief that occur from any significant loss. Going through a divorce is a loss. You are the only one who can make the conscious and deliberate choice as to when you are ready to recover. Your mind may be feeling one way and thinking another. Your ego may be resisting letting go. Your learned beliefs as to whether or not you deserve to be happy could be holding you in resistance.

It will take much longer to heal from divorce and become empowered from the experience if you don't believe you can or should be happy, healthy and have an abundance of everything you want but it is possible.

If you truly want to recover from divorce, enrich your life with complete joy, love, ultimate health and prosperity then make a decision now. Take action and make the commitment that despite set backs you are ready.

Do whatever it takes and get support so you may feel empowered and self confident that you will not allow yourself to waste any more time feeling less than fantastic. Get coaching, counseling, find new supportive friends and start living to your full potential.
