How To Have a Happy Divorce

Divorce. It is the dreaded “D” word that all married couples fear. Nobody enters a marriage expecting a separation or divorce, so some may question how it is possible to remain calm and happy during a time when stress levels may reach their maximum. Contrary to popular belief, it is actually possible. Here are some suggestions and tips to remember when push comes to shove and divorce is the only option:

  • Take time to cope, understand and accept. Next to death, divorce is the most traumatic experience you may go through in a lifetime. Don’t rush. Allow yourself to take the time you need to heal and fully move on.
  • Be there for your children. Remember that your role as a mother/father is to guide and support your kids. Take the time to explain to them why you and your partner are splitting up. Also, remember to not condemn your ex in front of your kids. This will ease the pressure they feel from the divorce, resulting in them feeling happier as they do not feel the need to choose sides. After all, your children’s safety and happiness should be your priority.
  • Surround yourself with positive individuals. Make sure you gather up a support team of friends and family who will be there to pick you back up when you fall down. Spending time with family and friends will also help clear your mind.
  • Speak up. Don’t let your ex-have all the say during the divorce process. The only way to get what you want is to speak your mind and have your voice heard.
  • Once you feel as though you have completely moved on and accepted the divorce, try to get back out there! Grab some friends, go out and have some fun! Don’t isolate yourself; reach out to your friends, go to the bar and get back in the game!
