What to Expect When Going Through a DivorceSunday, March 12th, 2017, 2:40 am
Going through a divorce is never easy. Regardless of what assets you share, how many children you have, or how much time you spent together, a divorce symbolizes the end of an era and an uncertain future.
It’s natural to be unsure of how to feel when going through the divorce process. While you may know that getting a divorce is making the right choice, it can still be difficult to go through the motions, sign the papers, and agree to how your property and belongings should be divided.
If you’re about to go through a divorce, you may be wondering what to expect. Although each divorce will be different, there are a few things you can expect.
Expect to feel grief.
Depending on the circumstances around your divorce, you may feel like you’re losing someone special. Your ex-spouse was once someone that meant a great deal to you, so it is natural to feel like you’re parting ways with someone extremely important. Try to surround yourself with things and people you love so that the grief does not feel overwhelming.
Expect to feel angry.
Whether you want the divorce or not, you will probably feel some level of anger during the divorce process. From feeling like you wasted the years spent with your spouse to getting upset when they fight you on a beloved belonging you thought should be yours, anger is common in divorces. Remember the good times and focus on the future.
Expect to make mistakes.
The divorce process can be messy. It only gets messier when there are children, new boyfriends or girlfriends, or overbearing family members involved. With so much pressure to end the divorce, it's not surprising mistakes can happen. Don’t beat yourself up and keep moving forward.
