Ronald Johnston Family Law- An Emotional Time

January 19th, 2015

Feelings of uncertainty, depression, and insecurity are common during a divorce. If you feel that these emotions are running your life, a counselor may be a good option. If you feel no emotions during this time, you may also want to consider seeking help. As we move through the stages of healing, anger can very easily mask the hurt we feel. Anger is an easier emotion and can shield you from the pain initially. This is why many divorces can be messy. Facing the hurt will come, but the initial anger can be addictive. Other common feelings that come from the divorce process are confusion, loneliness, and betrayal.

There is a wide range of emotions that a normal person may travel through to achieve acceptance of the situation. These include, anger, guilt, sadness, fear, frustration, and denial. It is very common for these feelings to change from week to week.   You may know you have reached acceptance when you come to a week where you are simply relieved that it is over.

Individual or group counseling can help you work through this time and help you find ways to move forward. It is important to remember that seeking professional help is not a sign of weakness, but instead a very well thought out plan for starting your new life out on the right foot.
