How to Move on After Divorce
Three things you need to do to successfully move on after divorce.

Unfortunately, not all divorce recovery groups are created equal, so you'll want to do a bit of research to find the one that will work best for you.  You'll want to ask anyone you know who's taken a divorce workshop if their workshop provided both an opportunity to share what they were going through AND accountability for moving forward between classes/sessions.  You can also ask your attorney for a recommendation of a good class in the area.  Here are three websites for organizations that offer divorce recovery workshops that you can check out: Divorce Care, Rebuilding Workshops, and When Your Relationship Ends Workshops.

If you’re ready to successfully move on from your divorce, realize that there are only 3 things you need to do: 

  1. Take care of yourself
  2. Separate the present from the past and create your future
  3. Join a community so you recognize that you’re not alone in getting through your divorce

Once you start your work on completing these tasks you’ll develop the focus and determination to not only move on from your divorce, but to get on to making the rest of your life the best of your life.


Your Functional Divorce Assignment:

Which of the three tasks to moving on from divorce do you need to pay the most attention to right now?  Most of us like to think that we need to multi-task to get things done – including healing from divorce, but that’s just not true.  All that anyone can truly focus on at any instant is one thing, so start at the top of the list and see, if you need to take care of yourself, if you need to separate now from the past and design your future, or if you need to search for and join a divorce support group.

What help do you need to accomplish this one task?  When you’re going through divorce, just about everything becomes a bit more difficult to do because of the huge changes divorce brings with it.  It’s 100% OK to ask for some help.  So go ahead and ask for the help you need.  You’re worth it!

Still seem a bit complicated?  There are times in the divorce process when it’s just all too much to contemplate.  If this is where you are, don’t worry.  I can help.  All you need to do is request a Complimentary Consultation and together we can figure out what your next step to moving on from your divorce needs to be.

The groundwork for my divorce was laid before I ever got married. I turned 19-years old a month before I met the man I would marry just 10 months later.

So I ... Read more
