No matter how strong of a person you are divorce is a life changing event that can rattle anyone. Letting someone into your life and opening up your inner most thoughts, fears, and emotions creates a strong bond in people. Having to let that go can be one of the most difficult things a person can deal with. That being said, life goes on and in time you can achieve happiness with the right attitude and support. There is a right and a wrong way to go through this process. It is important for a person to have a good support system and positive influences rather than resulting to alcohol and other substances to cope.
First, it is important to keep a positive self impression. It is easy to start getting down on yourself and to feel unattractive, or like something is wrong with you. This could lead into depression and a very difficult road. The way you feel about yourself is important in moving on from your past marriage. Don’t only rely on others to give you a pep talk and try to bring you up, because you wont have them around 24/7. In getting over addictions they tell you to keep around people, places, and things that won’t have a negative influence. A lot of that has to do with your own mind in what direction you want to take. When you look in the mirror know that you are a human being that deserves respect and has every right to live your life to its fullest. Remain confident in your abilities and you have already won half the battle.
Once you are at peace with yourself you can start looking for a brighter future. You will have a lot of responsibility on your plate dealing with finances, children, and other attachments from your past. It is important to be strong and remain as a good role model and positive influence for your children. Take things a day at a time, and pat yourself on the back for each small victory. Concentrating on everything that can happen at once or sulking in your past will only keep you locked into your past and have you lost as what to do. With each day that goes by, realize how good of a life you have and appreciate what has been given to you. There is still a bright future ahead and plenty of time to create new relationships and new memories. Divorce is a traumatic event, but your future could hold bigger and brighter things for you and maybe it was necessary for you to achieve the happiness you deserve.
One last step is creating a working relationship with your ex after you have moved on. Although you are no longer married there will be family, friends, and belongings that will keep you in contact. How you choose to keep in contact with that person will determine your level of comfort and ease when dealing with them. This is most important if you have children with that person. For their sake you should remain respectful and refrain from talking negatively about your ex. They are still the mother or father of your children and although your children didn’t get the divorce, they are unfortunately an innocent by stander in the situation. Creating a friendship with your ex will allow you to be at peace with the breakup and manage your new life being separated.
