ARE YOU HAVING A HARD TIME COPING WITH DIVORCE?
Blindsided by your spouse’s decision to leave or struggling with guilt, fear and uncertainty about your choice to divorce? If you are deep in pain, struggling with confusion or frustrated by your inability to focus, we can help you cope with divorce.
Because divorce is a transition that touches every aspect of your life altering your finances, home, career, social circle and relationship with children, in-laws and friends, it can be immensely shocking to your system when you are first confronting and coping with divorce.
You may find yourself significantly less productive at work, unable to follow conversations, easily distracted, forgetful, less clear, more uncertain of things you typically are sure about, etc. It is like a large database program is running in the background of your mind, slowing down all your day-to-day functioning. Feeling like this, while certainly uncomfortable, is a natural reaction to coping with divorce.
Coping with divorce is a lot like stepping into an emotional tornado you might experience sadness, fear, uncertainty, denial, anger, confusion, desperation, hopelessness, bitterness, insecurity and many more depleting emotions throughout a given day.
When first coping with divorce, denial reigns as your psyche adjusts to the trauma of your unfolding circumstances. After that, depression, anger, and bargaining rolls in and out of your head and heart.
Ultimately you want to touch upon acceptance and then begin to live into it. Acceptance is a process. Even touching it momentarily is a good sign that you are headed in the right direction.
Divorce scatters all the pieces of your life. When coping with divorce, there is a tendency to think about all the shifting pieces simultaneously, trying to create some semblance of order. Since here are many unknowns, thinking about all of the pieces…the past, the present and the future all at once can be mentally overwhelming and paralyzing.
When coping with divorce, we recommend that you list all the areas you need to address and then commit to taking it one step at a time. Looking at the big picture daily and getting overwhelmed will only serve to leave you frozen, unable to act or reactionary and making choices from a place of confusion and uncertainty that complicate the situation rather than defuse it.
