How can I cope with my divorce emotionally?

Along with the practical consequences of divorce, dealing with the emotional fallout can be just as overwhelming. In this case, knowing how to deal with stress and other negative emotions is invaluable, especially for contentious divorces. Live About offers the following tips in this case, which can help you bounce back emotionally after your marriage has been dissolved.

Do things you love

During a marriage, you may have put some of your beloved hobbies aside. Now is the perfect time to revisit these interests, whether they involve crafting, hiking, or working out. Pursuing your interests will help you boost your self-esteem while also offering an opportunity for you to relax. Hobbies are also a great way to get your mind off the divorce, even if it’s for a short period of time.

Manage your expectations

You probably built up quite a few expectations about your life during your marriage. These expectations have now been dashed by your divorce, so you must change the way you look at things in order to move on. Let go of concerns you can’t control, such as the actions of your ex-spouse. Instead, focus your energy on things you can control so you can make positive changes in your life.

Seek out support

If you feel isolated, try to build your support networks. This includes fostering relationships with friends and family who may have fallen by the wayside during your marriage. Spending time with loved ones can build you up while also providing you with a chance to speak your mind about what happened. If you lack a strong social network, look for ways to build new relationships.
