How to deal with a divorce?

Remember, divorce is a situation, not a label

Let's be real, we all enter into a long-term committed romantic relationships with the hope of making it work, investing our best efforts even when challenges arise. However, divorces occur and they do for various reasons which may include abuse, financial incompatibility, sexual mismatch, interference by family and friends, partner's lack of self-confidence, insufficient communication, and a lack of individual or mutual growth etc. Today we share with you 7 tips to help you navigate through a divorce

1. Acknowledge your pain - expect to experience hurt, tears, and anger. Embrace these emotions as part of the healing process.

2. Avoid self-blame and blaming your ex-partner - recognize that a divorce is a result of two people not finding compatibility. Whether the reasons involve abuse, family interference, or general incompatibility (sexual, financial, personality), it's crucial to view it as an incorrect partnership. Refrain from dwelling on blame and focus on moving forward.

3. Understand that friendships may change - accept that some friends may choose sides or distance themselves. Surround yourself with supportive friends who won't judge or interrogate you about your past. Seek companions who uplift and encourage you.

4. Be mindful of the impact on children - if you have children, show them strength even if it initially feels like a facade. Children may have witnessed conflict, but it's essential to avoid speaking negatively about the other parent. Focus on creating positive and enjoyable memories during your time together.

5. Consider new relationships only when you're emotionally healed - don't rush into a new relationship until you've processed your emotions and are no longer harboring resentment. It's perfectly acceptable to take time for yourself before exploring new connections.

6. Remember, divorce is a situation, not a label - view divorce as a circumstance rather than a defining characteristic. By adopting this perspective, you can detach any stigma associated with the term and focus on moving forward positively.

7. Emphasize meaningful relationships - prioritize building connections that bring value to your life. Recognize that your experiences may resonate with others going through similar situations.
