Blessings of Divorce
Can divorce be a blessing? Probably for some people. But
most people are torn apart by divorce even if they were
the one to initiate it.
Yes, even the friendliest divorces are painful. But if
you can set your head straight and find the blessings,
you will move on faster and with far less pain.
Divorce is the start of a world of possibilities. Stop
thinking of it as the end of a relationship.
Happy, healthy children are more important than hanging
on to a relationship that was wearing everyone down.
Think of qualities of your ex that made you
uncomfortable or unhappy. (jealous, possessive,
controlling, foul temper, unfaithful...) You can thank
your stars you’re now free.
You get to re-establish your identity. Get in touch with
your needs again. Appreciate ‘me’ time and make the most
of it. You will enjoy it.
Once you realize that placing blame is pointless, you
can start to understand the reasons for the breakup and
learn some valuable lessons about yourself that will
make your next relationship stronger.
You can reinvent yourself. Get a new hairstyle, buy new
clothes, take up a hobby that you didn't have time for
before, have time for new friends.
Life after divorce is not hard - unless
you make it hard. It can be very blessed if you are
willing to find the blessings.
Stop the blame game and look for the blessings.
