Divorce can be one of the most traumatic events in a person’s life, and not just for the divorcing parties. Parents, children, siblings – all can be affected. Some thoughts to keep in mind:
· Personal time alone is essential. However, do not withdraw from your friends and family. Having the support of friends and family is essential during a divorce.
· Maintain your spirituality. Stay involved at your place of worship. If you do not have a place of worship, consider finding one.
· Do not get into confrontations with your spouse. Sometimes this is unavoidable. However, make sure you are not giving your spouse opportunities to create confrontations.
