If you've recently gone through a divorce, chances are that you're feeling a lot of different emotions. You might feel sad, lonely, or bored. You might feel angry, tricked, or even betrayed. Maybe you feel relieved. Maybe you feel excited. No matter what you're feeling as you move forward with your life, there are a few ways that you can start to deal with your divorce productively.
One of the simplest ways that you can start to move forward is to connect with friends who understand what you're going through. Whether you go out for coffee with some girls from work or you join a support group of divorcees, what's important is making sure that you have a network that will support and encourage you during this time.
Did you know that journaling can be therapeutic? Keeping a journal can help you to deal with difficult emotions, to sort out your feelings, and to start moving forward with your life. You don't have to be a professional writer to keep a journal. Just grab a notebook and start writing.
Whether or not you're religious, meditation can offer a valuable way to relax and calm down. Consider taking just a few minutes each day when you can be alone with your thoughts. Focus your energy on thinking about one word that makes you feel powerful, focus your energy on thinking about your God, or focus your energy on simply clearing your mind.
Reading books about divorce might seem counterproductive, but the truth is that divorce guides can be very helpful. Consider picking up a book that talks about life after a divorce, including dating, remarriage, or simply on how to start finding yourself after your relationship ends.
