👉🏼 Tune in to the new episode of the Divorced Woman’s Guide —
Overcoming Relationship Betrayal with Lora Cheadle.
Key Points in this Episode:
✔️ The pain of betrayal and infidelity is an opportunity to grow and to understand yourself better. Know that only you can do your healing work for you — and set no expectations that you can do the same for your partner. Focus wholeheartedly on yourself, and use this experience for good.
✔️ If somebody else judged you — it’s absolutely their prerogative that says a whole lot about them and nothing about you. Lora is the epitome that it’s possible to become BRILLIANT and BOLD after BETRAYAL. “I was shattered personally; not only have I given up my life professionally, but I also don’t even feel comfortable saying anything because of the way people are going to start judging me. It took a while for me to see it was not my fault, untangle myself from that perceived judgment, and get strong in myself that his infidelity had nothing to do with me or my choices. If somebody else judged me, that was absolutely their prerogative, and it said a whole lot about them and nothing about me. That was really the catalyst for a lot of my work, coaching women around empowerment. I almost betrayed myself by hiding my story. How many other ways have we betrayed ourselves by putting up with the world and just shutting up, not to rock the boat? I saw my entire life in a different light and decided I would not do that anymore.”
✔️ Discover Lora’s Five Steps of FLAUNT! and the magic of burlesque to help you untangle yourself from the past, release judgment, and uncover your inner power.
✔️ Think who you would want to be and NOT who you’re supposed to be. What is a good daughter? A good coparent? A good mom? Create your own definition of what your roles mean for you and not what is expected of you.
✔️ Your burlesque persona can do all the things that you’re too afraid to do. The word “burlesque” screams so many different meanings for people. As a routine, Lora has employed burlesque to empower many women’s lives. When incorporated in the healing process, they “strip out of” their pain, confusion, and insecurity and playfully reveal themselves as they are – and not what the world dictates them to be.

Going through an immense betrayal can be the most difficult thing to get over. In fact, it makes it hard for us to trust others again. Believe me. I know how it feels. My ex-husband cheated on me, and he was the last person I’d have ever thought to be capable of hurting me. It took me some time to realize that trust has to start within ourselves.
After her son was born, Kristy Carruthers had to sell off their clothing, jewelry, and belongings. She started interviewing for jobs at four weeks postpartum. After living on credit cards for a few months, she just hit the end of the rope and ended up having to sell the house to pay the credit card bills. That’s when the mind shift happened. I said to myself, ‘You know what? This can never happen again. This is not acceptable.'”
When I was married, divorce was never on my mind.
It never occurred to me that it had to be something I should learn about.
Fast forward to today, it continues to be that gift that keeps on giving. It has taught me about myself more than I ever knew.
Even though I’ve undergone therapy, I still believe that what I’ve endured and experienced post-divorce unraveled five lessons that I never would’ve discovered on my own.
