When relationships come to an end it can be an emotional and traumatic time for everyone involved and particularly for any children. Divorce and Separation involves making changes to many aspects of your life, and in many cases most people find the journey to a new life, home and relationship hard. In circumstances where both parties have mutually agreed on the need to separate, it is often still a frustrating experience despite all persons being cooperative.
Divorce and separation is a complex process which often takes a substantial amount of time to resolve. Every person will come to terms with either divorce or separation in their own time and deal with the change to their lifestyle in their own differing ways. Some people choose to increase their exercise regime, or even take up new hobbies. It is of prime importance to find healthy activities which help you cope with your new circumstances.
The time needed for divorce and separation resolution varies among persons and is based on individual factors. These factors include:
- Degree of separation
- Personality traits
- Reasons for separation
- Length of divorce period
- If children are involved
During periods of separation or divorce you may feel overwhelmed from such a significant change to your life. Feeling overwhelmed can lead to a number of emotions that can negatively impact your quality of life. Some of these emotions will include:
These feelings are perfectly normal during divorce and separation periods. However, if they become too intense or occur for longer periods of time, you may need to seek professional assistance to aid you during this difficult time. If left unchecked, these feelings can lead to more problematic issues such as anxiety and depression.
