Manhattan Divorce Mediator Shares 5 Tips on How to Overcome a Painful Divorce
Start by being honest about your feelings and realizing that it is ok to feel pain, grief, anger, depression and loneliness. Some people suppress their feelings and pretend that everything is great, when it is not; unfortunately, this strategy only backfires on them when it shows up in day-to-day dealings with coworkers, family and friends.
With Time, It Will Get Easier
In the beginning, it will be tough and it may seem that life will never get back to normal, however, nothing lasts forever. The more time that goes by and the busier you keep yourself, the easier it will get. It is important to stay busy and keep your focus on the positive things in your life. Opt for focusing on a new hobby or trying a new activity with the children.
Forgive For The Sake of The Future
If you want to have a healthy relationship in the future, it is imperative to let go of the past. If you bring your past with you to a new relationship, then the new relationship becomes toxic. Even though forgiving someone who once hurt you is very hard to do, consider doing it for the sake of your future relationships. Forgiveness helps us get rid of our negative emotions.
Learn From The Past
Take your divorce as a learning experience and use the insights to your advantage. Instead of rushing into a new relationship right away, take some time to yourself to reflect on the past and what good has come out of a bad situation. The answer may pleasantly surprise you.
Join a Support Group
Realize that you are not in this alone and you don’t have to go through this tough time alone. There are many support groups that can provide a safe environment to share your deepest thoughts in confidence. By joining a support group you are committing to your happiness and peace of mind. Check with your local church or divorce mediator on some recommendations for support groups.
