In the Linda Ronstadt song “Poor, Poor Pitiful Me”, she sings about a breakup. She describes it as he “put me through some changes Lord. Sort of like a Waring blender”. Divorce can feel like that you are whirring in that blender.
Before divorce, you had a family, friends, home and work. During divorce, this changes rapidly, even crumbles. Your life rapidly spins out of control. You live with fear, anxiety, depression and anger on a daily basis.
There’s no “magic pill” to cure for these emotions. But you still have to deal with your day-to-day life. So, what can you do to get through this situation? Here are some suggestions for coping.
As the saying goes “This too shall pass” and when it is done, those who follow these tips will be amazed at how much better their lives will become.
