Coping with Divorce

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.
