Separation & Divorce During Holidays

Holidays can be stressful enough and when you add in that your relationship has ended or is ending, you may be feeling rather overwhelmed. Many people choose not to separate during the holiday season, to keep the “status quo” during the holidays. This is very difficult for the separating couple because they now have a secret as they sit down with family. Couples are unsure what to do and feel sad, but want to ensure that others are not burdened with their news.

It is very important to self-care during the holiday season, especially if it is your first holiday without your spouse. If you have made your family aware that you are separating this allows you to let the people that love you know that you may not want to discuss the separation on that day or evening. Surround yourself with safe and caring family and friends. Create a new tradition, perhaps a new Christmas ornament or a new Menorah for Chanukah. Journal how you are feeling, call a friend that will listen, and remember one day at a time. Recite the serenity prayer.

Did you know that January is “divorce month”? Many couples feel that when the holidays are over and the stress of the holidays has subsided, it is time to be honest about their relationship to everyone including their partner/spouse.

The Separation and Divorce Self-Help Group is meeting on Monday, December 22 at 7:30 p.m. For more information www.angelfreedman.com

We will be discussing how to survive the holidays and ways to self-care. Be gentle with yourself and remember that you are not alone. Separation and divorce is a traumatic time in a person’s life. We will be discussing ways to start the healing process.

Warmly,
