Finding Support During a Divorce

Ask anyone who’s divorced; the process takes an emotional toll on everyone involved. However, it’s possible to mitigate the pain by seeking out help. If you’re currently going through a divorce, or are thinking about filing for a divorce, this blog post can help you get the support you need.

Tell Your Friends Early On

Shouldering all the weight of your emotions is never a good idea, especially in the early stages of a divorce. Typically, denial and anger are people’s initial responses to divorce, and these emotional stages are often the hardest to overcome on your own. Therefore, it’s better to tell your friends and family early on so you can get the support you need when you need it most.

Don’t Be Embarrassed

Many people are embarrassed about their divorces, and it stops them from telling their friends and family. Fight against divorce-related embarrassment by recognizing that divorce is a common occurrence. Nearly 50% of all marriages end in divorce, which means you’re far from alone on this journey. Therefore, don’t be scared to go to your loved ones because this is normal.

Find Outside Help

In some scenarios, it may be best to find support outside of your friends and family. If that’s the case, there are numerous resources available for spouses who are going through divorces on their own.

Some of these resources include:

  • Mental health books;
  • Divorce counseling;
  • Divorce care groups;
  • Single parenting books (if applicable);
  • Experienced divorce attorneys.
