Are you prepared for the emotional stages of divorce?

Once you decide to divorce, your outlook on the future may never be the same. While you're going through a rough patch, it's important to remember that you control your own destiny.

Preparing for the emotional stages of divorce will help you deal with everything that comes your way. Here are some feelings to expect:

  • Denial: This is a natural way to protect yourself; however, it's not a long-term solution. It's okay to find yourself in denial, but you also need to face reality at some point.
  • Anger: You should expect to have feelings of anger throughout the divorce process, especially if you blame the other person for your failed marriage.
  • Bargaining: This occurs when you're ready to come to terms with your divorce. It's important to be honest with yourself during this stage of the divorce process.
  • Depression: This sets in at different times for every person. Some people become depressed early in the process, while others face this once their divorce is complete and they're on their own.
  • Acceptance: Typically, the last emotional stage of divorce is when you finally realize that you can't change the past but that you have full control over your future.

You can never really prepare yourself for everything the divorce process will bring to your life. Instead, you need to deal with each emotion as it enters your life, all with the idea of eventually finding peace.

One of the best ways to help yourself is to be prepared for the divorce process. When you understand your legal rights and what you want to accomplish, it's easier to stay the course from start to finish.
