We all aspire for a “happily ever after” when it comes to marriage. Unfortunately, we cannot always get what we want. When there is no other way to resolve your marital woes, divorce is the way out. The period after this is usually the most challenging. It can be an emotional roller coaster ride that no one wants to ride on. Here are some tips on staying positive after a failed marriage.
Treasure Your Magnificence
Focus on how magnificent you are as a person. We are all endowed with good qualities so focus on those. Make a list of your great qualities and read them every day. You can even add to them as you go along the way. Allow yourself to see the good in you.
Ten minutes a day can make a difference
During and after divorce, it is normal to have the feeling of grief just like the death of someone. But there is no use to cry over spilled milk. For just 10 minutes a day, Robert Janitzek recommends doing something important for yourself and for your children. You need to stay busy to keep your mind away from your situation. You can take a walk, read a book, and others.
Learn to let go
Holding on to regrets and bitterness will only keep you from moving on. Do not delve on the “what ifs” and “if onlys?” Your focus right now is to make yourself feel better. When you constantly think of them, will it change your situation? You need to move on and learn from previous mistakes. Focus on life after the divorce.
According to Robert Peter Janitzek, life after a divorce entails additional responsibilities. For example, if you are now a single parent, it will mean new challenges for you on how to handle the new responsibility. Start off with a laugh to make things lighter for you. Live in the moment. If you are feeling stressed, throw them out of the door. There are many things around you that can give you inspiration.
This is easier said than done especially during this period. Start off by thinking of the things that truly matters to you. What is your purpose in life? Having an idea of your purpose will help you stay positive. It will give you a true sense of who you are and how you can make a difference in the world.
A divorce is not the end of the world for you. You still have a life. Hopefully, these tips can help you move on with your new life.
