It goes without saying that going through a divorce can be really stressful. There's no question that it's hard having to think of what lies next for you now that you two are no longer together. But when you let the stress and anxiety get to you, it can end up consuming you. That's why it's so important to stop letting the sadness over what happened control your life. Just because your marriage ended doesn't mean you have to stop living.

When divorce coach Micki McWade mentions tips on how to keep your divorce from driving you crazy, we couldn't agree more. She definitely has a point when she says that you need to try to take it a day at a time. Ye, this is a really time in your life right now but you really shouldn't rush anything; slow and steady is your best option right now. Second, you have to realize that if you have kids, even though your marriage is over, if the relationship you have with your ex is not. It makes sense that she feels that you should be a united front for your children’s sake. But before you can be strong for everyone else, you've got to be strong for yourself. The only way that you'll stay sane is if you focus on your own life and happiness.
