Divorce is a trying legal process, but it's also emotionally draining, leaving you with the unenviable task of rethinking your entire life. Even if your marriage was as amicable as possible, you'll still have to set new goals and find a different path forward.
The Law Office of Carmen DiAmore-Siah, a divorce law attorney in Honolulu, understands how difficult this process can be. Based on her experiences as an attorney, she offers a few tips for the newly divorced:
- Allow Yourself To Mourn: Even if the marriage eventually devolved into bitter unhappiness, you still entered into it with high hopes and expectations. Now that the fighting and the stress is over, you'll need to make room for the feelings of loss and remorse, which are perfectly natural. Pushing them away is an understandable reaction, but it can make moving on nearly impossible.
- Find A Therapist: One of the fastest ways to sabotage the new life you're trying to build is internalizing the baggage of a failed marriage. If you're having trouble dealing with your feelings, don't hesitate to find a good therapist who will help you work through them. Even if you decide you don't need therapy, it's important to stay open with trusted family and friends.
- Rediscover Yourself: Imagining yourself without your partner is one of the hardest parts of getting a divorce. Fortunately, you have done this before, so try to rediscover the interests and hobbies you had before you were married, and add in some new things you've always wanted to try.
