Do you feel disoriented & alone? You’re not alone in feeling this way. The process of divorce can leave a person feeling like they’ve lost their sense of identity. The good news is that you can pave a new path for yourself.
Focus on your Recovery
The first step in your post-divorce journey is to focus on your recovery. Divorce can feel like the death of a loved one, & it’s important to grieve the loss of your marriage. The stages of divorce grief are similar to the stages of other kinds of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, & acceptance. It’s important to acknowledge your feelings & give yourself time & permission to truly grieve.
Everyone’s recovery process is different & can take a varying amount of time. It’s important to take care of your physical & mental health during this time. Give yourself time to rediscover who you are & what you want out of life. Connect with parts of yourself that you may have put on a shelf. Pursue old hobbies & passions or try new things.
Focus on the Positive
Creating your own happiness is key. Start a gratitude journal & focus on the positive. Tell yourself positive affirmations. If you need help, don’t be afraid to seek it out. A good therapist, life coach, or accountability buddy can help you move forward.
You have the Power
Remember, after divorce, you have the power of reinvention, rediscovery, & forging a new path that’s best for you & you alone. Consult with a divorce coach to help you get started on practicalities if needed. You’ve got this.
