Tips For Getting Through Divorce/Separation
Divorce or separation is a huge change for couples and children. The impact of this can greatly affect the family in all areas of life, at work, home or at school. Here are some tips for surviving divorce:
- Allow yourself to feel all the emotions that come with divorce – cry if you need to, be alone when you need to and let yourself be angry. Just try to not do these in front of your children as this can be distressing for them.
- Talk to people – talk to your family and friends, tell them how you feel and ask for help if you need it! Also try talking to other divorcees, they can help give personal advice and share their experience.
- Learn that there are things you can control and things you can’t – you can’t control how your ex-partner feels about you but you can control how to make yourself feel good.
- Minimize contact with your ex-partner – this is the time to figure out how to live without them and not depend on them. Spend more time with friends and family and people who make you feel happy and positive.
We hope these tips helped and just remember to be positive, even in this difficult time.
