3 Golden Rules for Staying Calm During a Divorce

By Mary Stearns-Montgomery | Sep 20, 2013 | Divorce
 

Going through a divorce can be an extremely difficult and stressful life experience. While remaining calm can be the biggest challenge,  it is a key component for ensuring a satisfactory outcome. It is also imperative to keep a cool head during the divorce, especially when children are involved as your emotions and actions will unintentionally have an impact on their emotions and behavior as well. By remaining calm, it will secure your sanity during the divorce process and serves to protect your children as well as family members and friends from unnecessary drama and pain. 

Easy Ways to Help You Remain Calm During Your Divorce

1. Take a deep breath. Making rash decisions during the divorce process can have a negative affect on the outcome and your future. Be optimistic and understand you can get through this. Stay calm and handle it to the best of your ability. It starts with taking a deep breath and taking everything into perspective. No matter how bad things may seem at the moment, they will improve. 

2. Confide in someone. You've just lost your life partner and there will be an immediate feeling of being alone. Turn to a family member, friend, or someone who you can trust to serve as your sounding board and support system. Confiding in someone will be beneficial to the outcome of your divorce. Consider meeting with a professional counselor. They are objective and will keep things in perspective better than a friend who may be inclined to take sides. Also, I have found in my experience that client's who have sought out professional help have more clarity and are better able to help make the difficult decisions required to be made throughout the process.

3. Do your homework. Get all the facts before rushing into anything. Divorce can be very complex and complicated if you don’t have all the details beforehand. This is why it’s essential to contact an experienced divorce attorney. They will help to discuss your situation, understand your options, and offer the best possible advice for you and your family’s future.
