Don’t lose more than you already have.
People are creatures of habit. When it comes to letting go of certain habits and routines that have been part of your life for some time, you’ll probably struggle. That’s the thing about divorce. It’s not just the bond and the marital relations that are lost, you’re leaving a life you knew for one that is completely new.
This might make you want to hold on to something that you shouldn’t. In most divorce proceedings, the “holding on” manifests in harmful and toxic ways.
Talk to the right people.
One of the most important people to talk to during a divorce is a councillor or a therapist. Emotional stability is very vital when going through something that is as life changing as a divorce.
In a situation where things take a turn for the worse, and they aren’t as amicable as you would prefer them to be, you need legal advice. You will need to know exactly what legal steps to take to make sure that you don’t lose more than you ought to.
It’s not about who wins.
There’s no victory in losing someone you once imagined spending the rest of your life with. That is why, when going through a divorce, it is important to not seek to win or have “one up” on your spouse. The goal should be to find a resolution that will keep all parties happy.
Engaging in discussions with your ego put aside and a third party to mediate is one of the best ways to achieve this.
There are children here.
Many divorces usually have children involved. Even if they are old enough to understand what is happening, children should never have to be caught between a nasty divorce. The trauma of having to choose between your parents, constantly hearing negative things from the other about the other shouldn’t be a burden they have to live with.
