In the past few weeks and months, many of you have shared your biggest challenges with me. Much to my surprise, learning to move on during and after divorce didn’t really have anything to do with logistics such as learning how to budget, how to be financially independent, and things of that nature. Of course, those skills play an important part in learning how to move on, but it definitely wasn’t the main thing that kept most of us up at night.
Do you know what was? If you guessed “learning how to feel better,” you would be right.
Seems simple, right? But simple things are rarely easy.
In the next few weeks, we are going to examine what it means to start feeling better. Which means we are going to start looking at the emotions we can expect to feel after divorce, why we feel them, and what we can do to let them work for us and not hold us back.
There are dozens of different emotions that you probably feel when you’re learning how to move on from your divorce–sometimes you feel them all within the span of ten minutes. Each week, we will talk about a single emotion and learn strategies that can help us manage them. As a sneak peak, some of what we’ll cover includes:
This is going to be a great series and I’m excited to share these strategies with you as we move forward into the summer!
In the meantime, I’d love to hear from you! What emotions have held you back from moving on? Is there anything you have learned about your emotions in your divorce journey that you wish you knew before?
And as always, if you have any questions or comments, let me know! I love hearing from you and learning how I can help you get back to being happy.
Until next time, remember to take care of yourselves. You deserve it.
