In many situations, divorce is a major life-changing event. Regardless of where you are in life, there is no convenient or “good” time to get divorced. Whether you are the one seeking the divorce, or it is your spouse, your divorce can be a difficult and challenging time. The ordeal may create a lifetime of emotional scars. That said, you can get through it.
How you approach the divorce can make all of the difference in your ability to start over.
As with many situations in life, you have many choices. There are things that you cannot control, but there are also things that you can. You might not be able to control the acts of your spouse or their attorney, but you can choose how you respond to their actions.
Another area during the divorce proceedings where you have control is in your attitude. This begins with being aware of your feelings and analyzing how you are reacting to them.
Here are some questions you can ask yourself as a result of the divorce:
- How are you reacting to the situation?
- Are you feeling betrayed, abandoned, or cheated?
- Do you feel that you are victimized?
- Are you ready for the divorce?
- Was it a surprise to you, or did you see it coming?
- Do you want the divorce?
- How are your actions affecting your children?
