Experiencing a divorce can be extremely painful. It tears a family apart and can cause feelings of isolation. However, no one should go through this challenging time alone.
Half of all marriages in the United States end in divorce, but it's important to understand that you are not alone while facing this difficult time. To deal with the complex emotions you might be feeling during this time, a caring support system of positive and loving friends and family is crucial.
Communicate How You are Feeling
The trauma of the family being torn apart is something that can inflict significant emotional damage on a divorcing couple and any children involved. However, a support system can help you navigate through this difficult time. Talking out your feelings can be essential in helping you rebuild your life.
It is common for one or both parties to feel misunderstood. With various emotions and stress at an all-time high, it's understandable that you might not feel like anyone can relate to you. However, speaking with someone you trust can begin to facilitate the healing process.
When communicating with your support system, explain to them how you are feeling. Don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it. Let your loved ones know what you need from them, whether that is just someone to talk to or even someone to get you out of the house. They understand this is not an easy situation and will be more than willing to help you. Also, they can better assist you when they know what you need from them.
When you seek out a support system, it doesn't have to be a long-time friend. It just needs to be someone that can sympathize and listen to you in your time of need. However, it is crucial to choose your support system wisely. Some people may not have your best interest in mind, and may unintentionally cause more damage. For example, someone may still have close ties to your ex and might report back to them about what is going on in your life.
If you don't feel comfortable talking with someone you personally know, a neutral third party can be a tremendous help in working towards mending a fractured family. A third party, like a counselor, can listen to you and provide advice without any preconceived bias towards the situation. This can give you a new and clear perspective, thus allowing you to see the bigger picture. We always recommend talking to a professional counselor if that is an option.
