If your spouse has recently left you - Part II

During our last post, we began a discussion about what you may need to consider if your spouse has recently left you. We observed that it is important to keep your feet firmly grounded in reality. For while it is normal and healthy to grieve and to hope, if you allow your actions to be dictated by hopes that your spouse will return or hopes that you will never have to deal with him or her again, you will have an unnecessarily difficult time navigating the divorce process.

If your spouse has recently left you - Part I

If your spouse has recently left you, you are in need of several things. You need to be gentle with yourself and you need to prioritize taking excellent care of yourself. You need to consider speaking with an attorney and you need to get your financial papers in order. You need many things and you need to do many things. But first and foremost, you need to make sure that your feet are firmly grounded in reality.

De-stressing your divorce process

Whether your divorce is likely to be relatively amicable or relatively contentious, it will almost certainly be stressful at one point in time or another. Thankfully, there are several things that you can do to avoid certain tensions from escalating and several things you can do to de-stress if tensions have already escalated.

Accessing your greatest strengths during the divorce process

We frequently write about the importance of managing any negative emotions that may be inspired by the divorce process. We have previously observed that when individuals fail to process their negative emotions in healthy ways, they risk compromising their divorce settlement negotiations, their child custody dispute resolution and their future wellbeing. This is not to say that processing negative emotions inspired by the divorce process is always easy. But making healthy emotional growth a priority is necessary for these reasons and many others.
