Going through a divorce is a very stressful event in a person's life. Along with stress, it
is common to experience grief and sadness due to ending a marriage. Finding ways to manage
these feelings can be essential to making the best of this emotional, life-changing event.
One way to manage these emotions is to seek assistance from others. It is important that
you surround yourself with people who can provide a positive source of support throughout the
divorce process. Talking with sympathetic family and friends can help ease the emotional impact
of a divorce. An alternative to discussing your feelings with family and friends is to seek help
through a trained professional. A trained professional, such as a therapist, can also provide
considerable guidance and advice during this difficult time. Additionally, joining a support
group can be beneficial, as it can provide support from others going through a similar situation.
Children of the marriage may also have a difficult time adjusting to life during and after a divorce. It is equally important to provide children with emotional support during this time, by either talking with and listening to them or through the use of therapy sessions.
