Divorce is one of the most difficult events you will ever experience in your life, but you need not go through it alone.
Put together a team of professionals, friends and family members to help and support you as you end one chapter of your life and enter another.
Teaming with the professionals
The more assets you have the more complex your divorce will be, and you may dread the property division phase of the proceedings. You can add outside professionals to your legal team. For example, a financial adviser can help you with post-divorce budget planning. A real estate agent can step forward if you decide to sell your home. A counselor can help you keep your perspective and learn to cope when divorce details seem overwhelming.
Finding new friends
You may rely on your family members for love and understanding but a good friend is often just what you need in the way of support. A good friend will be kind and non-judgmental. You can also look for support from those who have already survived a divorce. You will find them at social events, at your fitness center, at church or through support groups. Friends will fill the gaps when you feel lonely and help boost your self-confidence and enjoyment of life.
Helping each other
An excellent antidote for the divorce blues is the ability to help a friend even as your friend is helping you. It is gratifying and healing to offer help in an emergency, to watch a friend’s children or provide assistance to an elderly parent. In short, adding friends to the support team you put together will help you significantly in navigating the rough waters of a divorce.
