Separation and Divorce can be quite daunting and many people feel that they have no place to turn for support and questions through the process. The shame and guilt that plagues so many people takes away from the most important task at hand, recovery.
Statistics show that second time around relationships and marriages have a 70% failure rate, because people didn’t take time to heal from the first relationship.
Children do not get divorced, parents do. We tend to worry about the children and forget about ourselves. Unhappy parents, will defiantly affect your children as they will feel insecure. The best thing you can do for your children is take care of yourself. When parents are happy, children feel secure and happy as well. This is a vital time to create schedules and routines for your children, especially if the separation and/or divorce is tumultuous.
Divorce is normal, half of our society is either breaking up or getting divorced. It’s time to support the people going through this very traumatic time in their lives. If you are getting divorced, be gentle with yourself remember you spent 365 days a year, for many years with your spouse. Good, bad or indifferent it takes time to heal and grieve.
