Divorce used to have a considerable negative connotation decades ago than it does today, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t any lingering adverse thoughts when speaking the words “I’m divorced.” The judgement doesn’t come from the person who the words are spoken to, but by the person who spoke them. Divorce can define your life as a failure, or it can be used as time of reflection and opportunity. You can’t control the events that lead to your divorce, but you can control want comes after.
- The opinions of previous generations have led to divorce carrying a significant stigma
- Those in unhappy marriages should realize that sometimes divorce really is the best option available to them
- If you are divorced, you should own it and realize that it gives you a chance to start anew
“The good news is you can be happy again, even happier than you were before, which means divorce doesn’t have to be the stigmatizing event it is often depicted to be.”
