In this episode, Susan Guthrie speaks with Daniel Herrold, one of the co-creators of Divored Over 40, a place to find friends and community after divorce.

Often, when the smoke clears after divorce, it becomes apparent that there is another casualty of the split: the friends have fled.  There are a number of reasons why this can happen. Sometimes they are uncomfortable around a breakup, other times they don't want to take sides so they take no side at all, an in others, they do take a side and it's your exes'!  So what is an adult supposed to do to make friends?  Enter Daniel Herrold, who with two new friends, has started a movement!  Just a few months ago they created an online blog on Instagram called @divorcedover40 that grew to include local get-togethers and now already has ambassadors in over 22 cities around the country to spread the word and help you find your tribe!  

It can be so hard to start again after divorce and many people just jump into dating to fill the void but Divorced Over 40 is here to help you find something even more important: support, friendship and community.  Take a listen and join the movement!

In this episode Susan Guthrie speaks with the creator of The Heart Hackers Club, Amy Chan, about the science and psychology of a broken heart and how to heal faster with some simple exercises and information.

She's not called the Chief Heart Hacker for nothing!  Amy Chan is a nationally renowned expert on the science of healing broken hearts and just released her instant best-seller, Breakup Bootcamp: The Science of Rewiring Your Heart.  We have all been there after a break up.  That seemingly never-ending time of emotional pain and loss where we feel that we will never recover.  Well guess what?  There are psychological and biological reasons that we feel that way and Amy knows them all and shares them with us.  Not only that, Amy has her tried and true exercises for helping you to recover more easily and faster as you hack your brain and help to rewire those circuits of pain.  

In this episode you will learn:

  • Why losing a significant other can feel like a physical pain.
  • Why you need to feel the feels in order to recover from the heartbreak.
  • The reasons why your ex is like a "drug dealer."
  • How "thinking traps" and cognitive distortions" keeps us lost in loss.
  • Why "bash the ex" sessions with friends and family can be counter-productive.

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, Amy shares three of her signature exercises to help you work through the pain, rewire your brain and emerge healthy, happy and ready for love again.  In the audio podcast Amy will walk you through how to "Reframe Your Story" in order to separate fact from fiction.  Then, in a special extended version of the YouTube video of the show, Amy takes you through her "Pie Exercise" and the "Stop Sign Exercise."  These exercises are your path to recovery so don't miss them.  You can access the YouTube video version here:  https://youtu.be/n7uNWQmfYi4

Just last week, Amy debuted her book, Breakup Bootcamp: The Science of Rewiring Your Heart on Good Morning America.  Be sure to check out her interview here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USVezvcQ1YU

November is Military Family Appreciation Month and in this week's episode Susan Guthrie speaks with Kristina Kaiser, who shares her insights into the challenges faced by the families of our military members, as well as some of the difficulties that can arise when facing divorce within a military family.

We often remember to honor those who serve, and rightly so, but the family members, especially the spouses of our active military members also make sacrafices in the name of our country and deserve our thanks as well.  In honor of Military Family Appreciation Month, Kristina Kaiser, herself the former wife for almost 30 years of a Marine officer, gives an insider view into the many ways that our military families give of themselves, often to their detriment, while a family member is in active service.  Facing many moves and relocations, job limitations, unpaid volunteer work expectancies, co-parenting alone and more, the spouses and children of military personnel also can be affected by the military life.  Beyond that, divorce can be extra complicated when an active or former member of the military is involved.  The pensions, benefits and more that are one of the highlights of military careers are limited in some ways in being divided during the divorce process and the non-military spouse may end up receiving less than the might have if they were not dealing with military benefits.  Whether you are a member of the military, a military family member or one of those who owe themour thanks, this episode is a wonderful reminder of all they sacrifice for their country and why those thanks are deserved!

IMPORTANT NOTE:  This episode is meant to honor our military families and to give a glimpse of the hardships and sacrifices that they make for out country.  We mention some of the issues that can arise in a military divorce but if you are divorcing and military benefits are at issue, it is strongly advised that you seek counsel from an attorney in your area who is well-versed in military benefit in divorce.  

 

GIVING TUESDAY is DECEMBER 1, 2020:  As mentioned by Kristina in the episode, the Tuesday following the release of this episode is Giving Tuesday.  If you would like to donate to one of the charities mentioned here are the links:

Split is a deeply personal film made in collaboration with children aged 6-12, exploring the often frightening and always life altering separation of their parents.

Split gives us the children's perspective on divorce... no adults, no experts… just kids speaking the powerful truth of what is on their minds and in their hearts. Their wisdom, candor, and humor will give courage to other children, and encourage parents to make better choices as they move through divorce.

In this episode, Empowerment Coach, Shannon McGorry returns to talk with Susan Guthrie about what you can do to pump up the volume when you are "fed up with fine."

Change can be an easy choice when things are awful but what about when they are "fine?"  I mean, things are ok, there's nothing wrong really so it all just fine.  So why do we sometimes feel so unsettled and restless when things are fine?  Why do we feel that there should be more?

Shannon McGorry, the guest expert from the hugely popular Episode #127, "Avoiding the Void: Facing the Future and Thriving After Divorce" rejoins us to help you navigate your way out of "fine." Shannon uses a variety of techniques and tools, that she shares with you, to help you to define your values and principals and to help you to find "what lights you up" because that's what takes life from fine to fantastic!  If you are fed up with fine and suspect that there is more out there for you, this is the episode that is going to get you on your way!

Dr. Elizabeth Cohen, a/k/a The Divorce Doctor returns to the podcast for the third in the blockbuster series of episodes focused on mental health, divorce and trauma.  In this episode, Susan Guthrie and Dr. Elizabeth delve into the culture of toxic masculinity that has been pervasive over centuries in our world and explain the untold cost of these societal mores on men AND women and how we all can begin to change the paradigm.

“Man up.”  “Be a man.”  “Shake it off, there’s nothing to cry about.”  We have all heard, and perhaps even said or thought these phrases ourselves.  They seem innocuous enough but when you delve into the culture of what it means to be a man, the huge cost, in emotional and physical health to men becomes clear.  That cost carries over into the lives of women as the men we love are unable to express their emotions and suffer the health challenges that stem from society’s unwillingness to allow men to be vulnerable.  This episode was inspired by an email from listener, Mark Whorle (THANK YOU MARK!), who wrote in asking for guidance in finding emotional support and resources for divorce that are geared toward men, or are gender neutral.  This outreach from Mark exemplifies the culture of toxic masculinity that impacts women as well as men.  Toxic masculinity feeds the patriarchy – it is a vicious cycle that we all need to break.

Dr. Elizabeth and Susan explore the myriad ways that toxic masculinity pervade our lives and how it is manifested during divorce as well as how we each can start to change the conversation.  Start here, listen and be a part of the change!
