Anxious Times in Divorce
One Step Forward, Two Steps Back: Yes, it may seem hard at first, and that’s because it is… no divorce is fun. But that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t keep pushing to see results. Hard work and consistent dedication will make it seem like a piece of cake in time.
Fear: You may feel scared and fear at this time may drive much of what you do. But you have the power to recognize fear and use it to drive you, motivate you, and give you the energy to do great things.
Bad Financial Outlook: You may think your outlook looks bleak, but you have a roof over your head, food, and more – and that isn’t so bleak after all. These are things that can be changed.
Affecting Children Negatively: If you show your children love and give open communication, you will help them through what is also a difficult time for them. Just remember that they have feelings during this divorce and that you have the power to change this course of their life.
Dealing with an Ex: Dealing with an ex can be hard at times, but you will have to maintain it in a healthy way for a long time, so it is a good idea to get used to the idea of communication. Nothing good comes from bringing up the past and bad emotions into this relationship.
Feeling Alone as Single Parent: You have people who care about you, such as your children and family or friends. Many people go through divorce and know how this feels, but it is not the end of the world.
