There’s no denying that going through a divorce is immensely difficult. In fact, it may be one of the hardest things we go through in life, emotionally, mentally, physically, and financially. Divorces can be expensive, traumatic, conflict-fueled, anger-driven, and overall terrible for many individuals. They don’t have to be, and they can be made easier with the help of divorce mediation, but for many divorcing couples, even when mediation is said and done, there’s still the post-divorce period to contend with. Once you’re successfully divorced and have the opportunity to start fresh, it doesn’t always feel like you’re actually getting that promised new future. It might feel like you’re stuck, in fact. To help you get past your divorce and move forward, Johnson Mediation offers Chanhassen, MN post-divorce support to help you feel better about your divorce and your new life.

Creating New Routines After a Divorce

One of the most difficult parts of a divorce is making a new life for yourself. When you’re married, a large majority of what you do at home and away is because of or for your marriage, to some degree. If you work, you’re used to working to support your family. If you cook dinners every night, you’re used to providing meals for your family. Your old routines take on new meaning after a divorce, and you’ll likely find that you can’t look at your old routines the same way you once did. To ensure you don’t fall into a slump of dwelling on the past, establishing new routines is essential to moving forward and beginning again. Now that you’re living your life independently, you need independent routines that support your own lifestyle, your own happiness, and your own well being.

Post-Divorce Grief Support

Even when we know a divorce is for the best, it doesn’t always make it easier. The most peaceful, amicable divorce can still leave divorced couples feeling the after effects, and grief is a common side effect of divorce, whether you’re happy with the outcome or not. Making sure you have access to support during this time is important to helping you make sure you move past the divorce and begin building a new life for yourself. If you’re grieving, take the time to grieve in a healthy way with the support you need, and then move on at your pace and for your benefit.

Accepting Divorce Decisions and Moving Forward After Divorce

It’s no secret that divorces don’t always go the way we want them to or imagine they will. Few people outside of the family law profession understand divorce law enough to anticipate the outcomes in a divorce, and often that leaves people unsatisfied with the end result of a divorce. Though you may not agree with a divorce decision, if it’s a legally fair decision, you should be focused on moving on and accepting your divorce. At Johnson Mediation, our Chanhassen, Minnesota divorce support professionals can help you do just that.
