Divorce and breakups are tough. You already have a million things to worry about—taking care of the kids, professional obligations, making sure the house doesn’t look like a nuclear fall-out, worrying about college tuition, retirement, aging parents. The list goes on and on.
When you mix those life events with the heartbreak, stress, and loss of confidence that many experience during a divorce, it can all seem like a terrible nightmare. You’re left wondering if you’ll ever be stable or happy again.
That’s a lot of baggage to handle for even the strongest of us. Hard feelings may linger, but remember that not all of the divorce’s after-effects are negative.
