    How to Overcome the Emotional Upheaval of Divorce


    Divorce is one of the most emotionally challenging and difficult things you can go through. You’re bound to feel a range of emotions, including anger, frustration, sadness, grief, and loneliness. Whether you’ve been married just a few months or many years, you will need support during this time. Here’s how you can overcome the emotional upheaval of a divorce.

    Be Patient With Yourself

    Divorce is not easy, no matter how thick you believe your skin is or how “ready” you felt going into the process. When you inevitably feel the mix of emotions that comes with getting a divorce, remember to be patient and gentle with yourself. Self-care is critical, so don’t be afraid to focus on you and give yourself the rest and reassurance you need.

    Allow Yourself to Grieve the Loss of Your Marriage

    The loss of a marriage can be as difficult as the death of a loved one. Even if you were the one who filed for divorce, allow yourself the ability to grieve the loss of your marriage. No one wants divorce to be the right option, but sometimes it is. Don’t be hard on yourself and let yourself be sad about the loss of your “happily ever after.” Accept that you won’t feel great about the divorce for awhile, and that’s okay.

    Contact Your Divorce Attorney for Support

    Getting support through the process of divorce and afterwards is critical, but many people don’t know where to reach out for help. Your divorce lawyer is an excellent source of support. Don’t be afraid to ask your attorney to connect you to resources in your area. Your attorney may be able to refer you to great divorce support groups, counselors, and other resources that can help you get through this tough time.
