Helpful Tips to Emotionally Handle a Divorce
Updated: Oct 17
I read a great article today that offers some helpful tips for those who are going through a divorce. The article cites 5 helpful tips to channel your energy into a positive direction when undergoing this emotional event in your life.
Tip #1- Channel positive energy: Start each day with a positive ritual. The article states, it’s easy to let the negative emotions associated with a divorce takeover, but remember that you will get through it. Don’t ask questions you have no control over answering and try to start each day with something positive.
Tip #2- Focus on the love you do have in your life: The article states that instead of focusing on the loss that you perceive that has left your life, instead focus on the love which you already have around. Your family and close friends are there for you and want to help. Sometimes they just don’t know how. If it’s a shoulder to cry on or a divorce party to celebrate your new found independence, let them know. You might have just lost one of the longest relationships you have ever had, but your family and close friends love you. Try to focus on the strength of these relationships to carry you through.
Tip #3- Call it by another name: The article state that divorce is not a personal failure, so start thinking of your divorce as a new beginning. The divorce can be a new chapter in your life, a new beginning poised with endless possibilities.
Tip #4- Don’t lose sight of you: Whatever you might lose during the divorce, don’t lose yourself. What do you like about yourself? How would others describe you? Don’t compromise who you are and stay true to yourself. It will definitely help you get through the divorce in one piece.
Tip #5- Revamp, rejuvenate, and rebuild: Take time to focus on yourself. You deserve a break. Do something for yourself. Take time to do things that you enjoyed prior to the divorce but never had time. Think about all the things you’ve wanted to accomplish and now find that you have the time to do.
