Your Divorce Journey—Blog Sample
The process of divorce is no doubt a difficult experience for everyone. It’s not easy to face the fact that the person you thought was the love of your life turned out to be the source of great pain for you.
As you navigate through deconstructing your partnership, you’ll likely find yourself questioning how things could have gone differently. Could you have been more receptive, kind, or understanding in the relationship? How might you have responded to your partner so that you didn’t end up where you are right now? The fact is that all the self-questioning is a normal exercise many go through during a divorce.
Allow yourself enough time to grieve the loss of what was or what you wanted the relationship to become. However, you may find it helpful to set some time limits on the amount of grieving you do in a day. After all, getting your focus onto the positives in your life will help you manage the rough spots.
Discover the treasures in the life you have now. Your family, your career, and your personal interests can be catalysts to move you through the phases you’ll experience during your divorce journey. This is a good time to put your toe in the waters of a new hobby or subject of interest. Stretch yourself a bit, physically, emotionally, spiritually, and intellectually.
It may be hard to believe right now but, eventually, you’ll come out of this experience with your self-esteem intact and a wealth of personal experience to draw on for the rest of your life. You have been given an opportunity to take a long, hard look at yourself. The power to change your thinking, your health, your look, and your life is in your hands. Why not take it and run with it?
