If you’re going through a divorce or have been divorced, you know it’s one of the hardest things you’ve ever done. While divorce is painful, it doesn’t mean you stay in this pain forever. People do recover and heal after divorce and some even grow.
Divorce Recovery and Personal Growth
Divorce can be an invitation to grow and to learn from the pain and heartache you are experiencing. Some of the ways I’ve seen people grow through divorce are:
- to grow new friendships and interests
- to better understand what contributes to the marriage ending without getting stuck in blame
- to take responsibility for your part in the problems without staying stuck in guilt
- to learn from your mistakes so you know how to work on them in the future
- to boost your confidence that you can handle the hard stuff in life
- to learn that you can be happy again after your marriage ends
We are often more resilient than we think. And I’d like to keep learning from you what’s helped and what’s gotten in the way of you letting go of the pain and looking forward to your future.
I invite you to take my brief survey of divorce recovery:
