Divorce create emotional roller coasters within people. There are four areas people can focus on to help with the transition. First, get on top of your finances. Changes will need to be made. Second, if the marriage is over or on the way to be over, it might be better on the children to end it in divorce. Chronic unhappiness is no good for anyone involved. Third, grieve. Give yourself time to say goodbye to that area of your life and finally, find a support system. Friends, family, groups, whatever it might be. Asking for help is a necessity.
- Most people see their financial situation change when they divorce. The quicker you look into the facts of your situation, then the sooner you can begin acclimating to a new reality.
- If a relationship is consistently unhappy, filled with chronic anger and/or anxiety, kids are often better off when divorce provides greater stability.
- Healthy grieving doesn’t mean you have to sit around and cry all of the time, alone, in a dark room. But it does mean you accept that with divorce comes a healing process.
