Tips on Coping With Divorce

For divorcing couples in Florida, handling the practical aspects might be just the tip of the iceberg. Coping with the emotional effects of divorce can be far more challenging for some people and can even get in the way of making reasonable decisions for both you as well as your family. Because it can be a stressful time for all involved, Psychology Today offers the following advice to people reeling in the aftermath of a divorce.

Keep Your Mind on the Future

While it may not seem like it, the future always holds hope. This is especially true for people who are in the midst of a divorce, who may feel bogged down by negative emotions and the notion that things are never going to change. Looking ahead when you're hurting can take a degree of abstract thinking; try to imagine the type of life you want for yourself and your family going forward in order to keep hope alive.

Entertain the Worst Case Scenario

A lot of anxiety is based on a fear of the unknown. These "what if" scenarios often plague people going through a divorce, whether they are related to not being able to find love again or they're linked to financial anxiety. While it may seem counterproductive, it can sometimes be helpful to entertain the worst case scenario in an attempt to quell rising anxiety. This will allow you to face your greatest fears, which can be helpful for moving forward.

Reflect on Your Emotions

Divorce is associated with a wide range of negative emotions, from fear to sadness to anger. In this case, it may be useful for you to reflect on the why of your emotions instead of the negative feelings themselves. You may find that the way you feel has a concrete underlying cause, and facing that issue is often an all-important first step towards healing. Being self-aware can inspire confidence, which in turn will help you face your problems in a more even-keeled manner.
