You will wonder at times how she knew about you and a particular significant other because she seems to describe you and the relationship to a T. And, when you read the last page you will wish you had read it years and a number of relationships earlier.

I have read other books on this topic which spoke to me... This book, which I got in the Kindle version, pulled it all together for me--the biology, personal values, self identity, the human quest for belonging and intimacy. The book... brought to me great understanding. I wish I had ordered the paper version with the workbook. I ended up going back and ordering it.

A Encore of Julie Orlov Q&A on Love and Relationships: Why was my ex able to move on so quickly?

Watch this weeks “Ask an Expert” video as Julie Orlov answers your questions on love and relationships. Today's question is "Why was my ex able to move on so quickly?" Did our 15 year marriage mean anything?"

Going through a divorce is hard. When an ex-spouse remarries, it is common for the other party to have some feelings—even if they were the one that wanted the divorce in the first place. A lot of feelings come up, including jealousy, resentment, hurt, and a final layer of loss. If an ex gets remarried immediately after the divorce papers are signed, it can elicit other questions as well.

Today’s question addresses these issues. Watch and learn the different ways people mourn and let go during the process of divorce and what it does and does not mean if your ex remarries quickly.

Let Go and Let In

Last week I wrote about how change can come knocking at your door at any time without any notice. This week, I'd like to talk about intentionally finding ways to let new things into your life—a  new job, a new love, a new friend, a new pair of shoes. Both big and small things count. Allowing and inviting new things, people, and experiences into your life breathes new life into you. It's not only healthy to do so but it's what makes life interesting and vibrant.

This goes for your relationships as well. Relationships stay healthy and active when you let in new ideas, challenges, fun, adventure, intimate moments and ways of being.  So what does it take to invite something new into your life?  Well, it takes letting go of something old and creating the space.

Sounds simple... Or is it?

Letting go of the old is not easy. And for some, it is downright painful. But if you do, you will experience a new kind of liberation—a freedom and lightness that comes with detaching from things that may be weighing you down.

To help you in this endeavor, I challenge you to let go of one or more of the following this week:

Parenting: When to hold on and when to let go

One of the most important aspects to parenting comes in the form of letting go. While newborns require the experience of attachment, as children get older, parents must face the sometimes painful task of creating healthy separation from their children. And while newborns come into this world completely dependent upon others for their survival, as they grow up, they must learn to separate and individuate. This is the cycle of life. This is the unique quality that parent-child relationships have.

Children at different stages of development require different levels of separation and independence. Sound judgment and common sense often lead the way. Better yet, reading a great parenting book or following a great blog (no personal accolades intended :-)) can help give you the information you need to support you along the way. It doesn't matter if you stumble. What matters is that you understand the importance in preparing your children for adulthood in age appropriate ways. In other words, don't unconsciously protect your children from growing up. Don't enable them to stay dependent, insecure, and fearful. Your job is to support and make choices that lend themselves toward helping your children become independent and live a great life. 

And believe it or not, this starts from the very beginning. Babies need the space to crawl and explore their environment. Toddlers need the freedom to learn that actions have consequences. School aged kids need to discover how the world works and their place within it. And adolescents need to know that they have the confidence and competence to go and make a life for themselves.

Letting go and allowing your children to make and learn from their own choices is fundamental. Encouraging your children to take risks, stretch and grow is vital. Modeling the art of separating and letting go is mandated.

So why is separating from our children so difficult for so many?

Here are just a few of the multitude of reasons why parents hang on—too long!!

If you find it difficult to separate from your children or allow your children to separate from you, you might identify with one or more of the following dynamics: (Click Read in Browser to access full article. Parents and future parents will not want to miss this one!

Let Go and Let In!

Change and transitions are not only a necessary part of life, they are a blessing. They allow you to meet new people and do new things, they enable you to grow and transform, and they create the space for more joy, happiness and love to come into your life. Unfortunately, we can stand in our own way. The idea of change is scary—we are not always comfortable with the unknown. So we end up holding on to what we do know, what is familiar and comfortable, often at the expense of our own wonderful future that is waiting to emerge. In the end, the very things we do to protect ourselves from potential “harm” are the very things that imprison us from potential growth and well-being.

It is so important to not only embrace change and transitions but to invite and welcome them to us. So whether you are someone who tries to block change or make change happen, there is a middle ground. It’s the place from which you let go and let in. Sometimes easier said than done, I know.  So in order to help you with this endeavor, I am offering five steps to help facilitate the art of letting go and letting in.
