Moving On with Life After Divorce

December 4, 2015

Moving On After DivorceGoing through a divorce is one of the most trying experiences that you will ever experience in your lifetime. The mental, financial and even physical strain a divorce takes on an individual can be overwhelming. With couples being so wrapped up in the divorce process, often times they forget to think about how they will move on with their life after the divorce. The truth is that we are all different, and there is no specific timeframe when it comes to grieving after a divorce. If you live in Minnesota, Johnson Mediation is a great resource to help you adjust and grieve after a divorce. Offering various classes and mediation options, our dedicated staff is sure to have a resource available that fits your needs.

What to Remember When Moving On with Life

No one ever said that life after a divorce would be easy. In fact for most individuals, it is very difficult, at least initially. If you have recently gone through a divorce, it is important to remember the following:

  • We all Grieve at Different Speeds – It may take one person a month to adjust to their new life, while for someone else it may take years. It is important for you to understand that it is ok to grieve as the feelings that you have for your ex-spouse will not disappear overnight.
  • Grieving With Kids is Even Harder – Having kids brings an entirely different side of things to moving on. Now you may have to share time with your ex-spouse. Johnson Mediation has parenting classes designed for individuals in your exact position to help you cope and move on with life as a single parent.
  • Believe in Yourself – In order for you to truly move on after a divorce, you have to believe in yourself and regain that confidence. Our staff at Johnson Mediation can partner with you every step of the way to help build you back up into the strong and confident person that has been missing.
  • Re-evaluate Yourself As An Individual – Take this time to focus on yourself and re-evaluate the goals that you have set out for yourself. Through our divorce recovery classes, we will challenge you to find your identity!
  • Light at the End of the Tunnel – Pain and grief is only temporary. No matter how hard the first few months or years are after a divorce, our team will continue to encourage and remind you that pain is only temporary, and your future is bright.
  • Setbacks are Normal – You may be feeling great after a divorce and suddenly you experience sadness again. No need to worry as this is common. Johnson Mediation can help you get over this hump and keep moving forward in a positive direction.
  • Too Much Pressure isn’t Good – You already have enough going on. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself during this time. Be patient and let our staff alleviate some of your stress.
  • Remember the Good Times – Even though you have gone through a divorce, the good times you had in your marriage should not be forgotten. Remembering those times will help you heal.
