f your marriage has come to an end, and you are facing the prospect of divorce, here are some tips on how to cope from the folks at sheknows.com
Prioritize Your Needs
There’s a lot in store for you. From moving to dividing up your assets, it’s important to prioritize what you need to do versus stuff you don’t have to do. If you have kids, try to make the transition as smooth as possible for them. That should be at the top of list of your priorities: Making it easy and as less scary as possible for your babies.
Ask for Support
From family to friends, it’s okay to ask for shoulders to cry on, ears that will have a listen, and companionship. Now that you’ll be alone for the first time in a long time, it will take a little getting used to. Waking up everyday can be scary because you realize all over again that you’re going through this big change that you didn’t foresee.
It is heartbreak, after all, and it’s good to talk (or vent) about it. If you have friends who have gone through divorces, that’s even better. Just knowing that other people have gone through the experience can be therapeutic.
