Finding who you are after your divorce is finalized can be challenging: a painful journey for some, and for others it’s just the breath of fresh air they were yearning for.
Rebuilding your life after divorce starts from the first day you and your spouse decided a divorce was the best path forward.
And when you utilize the collaborative divorce process, your team consists of an attorney for each spouse, a financial professional and a mental health professional such as a divorce coach and/or a child specialist if there are children involved. A divorce coach can help you on your journey of finding the new you.
Here are some things that you can do along your way in transforming yourself:
- Allow yourself to grieve and realize it can be a slow process at times
- Take time to discover the new you – what are your likes, dislikes?
- Simplify your life – simplifying your life can be very freeing and satisfying
- Surround yourself with people who believe in you, who champion for you to succeed
- A network of friends who will help you celebrate joy and divide pain are worth their weight in gold
- Take time out for “you time”
The truth is that stepping into your new life and new normal can be scary at times, and one of the best things you can do is to be kind to yourself, and realize there will be times of joy and times of struggle – it’s a part of life no one is immune to.
But, when you utilize the Los Angeles Collaborative Family Law Association experts, you can start to heal and move forward with the confidence you need to rebuild your life after your divorce has been finalized.
