Dear Divorcée, Do you still believe in love?

Dear Divorcée,

Oftentimes, after the devastation of a divorce or broken relationship, we may lose faith in love relationships and the thought of being loved. It’s understandable to a degree. Depending on how far along you are in your divorce recovery journey, you may be considering the thought of love again. I have been through two devastating divorces, and I still believe in love and marriage. Be encouraged with the fact that we have an opportunity to learn and grow and REALLY take time to reflect on who we are as individuals, and what our relationship needs, wants, and desires are. If we take time to put in the work, and learn about what constitutes healthy relationships, we have a great opportunity to love again. Love never fails. There is still so much more life to live, and love still wins. It takes time, patience, growth, and hard work. Do you still believe in love?

Dear Divorcée, 3 Way to Handle the Holidays After Divorce

The holidays are a challenging time after a divorce. With co-parenting, and all of the emotional transitions of divorce, it can be overwhelming at times.

Here’s 3 ways to make the holidays go a little bit smoother.

 1. If you co-parent, talk with ex-spouse and plan arrangements and visitations for the season. Do this as early as possible. Then sit down and explain to the children (age appropriately), what will take place. This will allow them to know what to expect. 

2. If you don’t have children, commit to an event, party or to host for the holidays. This will keep you accountable to get out and socialize during the holidays, instead of feeling down and being alone.

3. Create new traditions for your new life instead of focusing on past holiday rituals.

Remember, it will get a little easier each year.
