Everyone has different ways of coping with divorce. Be sure that you are taking good care of yourself. I’m sure that you have heard this before, but it is imperative that you find the methods or activities that help you as you are grieving and moving through your divorce.
Even though the transition of divorce has its challenges, take this opportunity to focus on you. Find ways to help ease your stress. For me, exercise was one of the ways that helped me get through the ups and downs of both of my divorces. Writing poetry, journaling, and continued volunteering for service projects also aided in taking my mind off of some of the stressors. I also borrowed books from the library, and read as a mini “escape”. Hot baths with scented oils and a candle can do wonders as well. If there is a hobby that you’ve always wanted to try, now’s the time.
You are the only you that you have. Take special care of you. You need it and deserve it.
