Be prepared for the many emotional stages of divorce

Even if you no longer love your spouse and realize that divorce is the best way to improve your life, it doesn't mean that you won't experience a gamut of emotions about your situation. You know that divorce will change your life forever, so it's only natural to feel sad sometimes during the process.

Below are some of the emotions that you may feel before, during and after divorce:

  • Denial. At first, you may find it hard to believe that you're going through a divorce. While you may not want to accept it at first, reconciling yourself with this reality will hope you cope with any fallout.
  • Shock. From panic to rage, you may be shocked that divorce is disrupting your life.
  • Roller-coaster. One day you're ok with the idea of divorce, but the next you're back to square one and playing the blame game. The only good thing about a roller-coaster of emotions is that eventually the ride ends.
  • Letting go. There will come a point when you realize that you have to let your marriage go. You know that the divorce process will be finalized soon enough and that there is nothing you can do to stop it. Once you let go you can then move on with making a full recovery.

If you prepare for the many emotional stages of divorce, it's much easier to deal with each and every one as you go through the phases of a divorce.

As you focus on your health and well-being, don't lose sight of the many ways for you to protect your legal rights during the divorce process.
