Strength comes from struggle. When you see your struggles as opportunities to become stronger, better and wiser, then your thinking shifts from “I can’t do this” to “I must do this”. T. Sorenson
Going through a divorce can feel like living through an earthquake. Your basic foundations of self, home and family are often shaken to their core. In the chaos you watch your past dreams and realities crumble. In the aftermath, you experience “aftershocks” as you begin the task of rebuilding a new life based on your new realities. The tremors keep coming as you deal with the changes in your home, your finances and your family.
It comes as no surprise that the divorce experience can bring a high level of stress that can take a real negative toll on our minds and bodies.
Our minds can go into overdrive to cope with all of the major decisions we need to make. Anxiety, fear, anger and confusion cloud our thinking at a time when we are making major life decisions. We can judge ourselves very harshly and unfortunately, people around us sometimes heap on the blame too. Peace of mind under these circumstances seems totally elusive.
Our bodies respond to the heightened stress with heightened tension. Our head throbs, our heart aches, our stomach churns and we can’t sleep at night. We gain or lose weight in an unhealthy manner. There can be a strong temptation to self-medicate our minds and bodies with pills and alcohol which can make matters even worse.
The wiser approach is to seek the advice and care of professionals who can give you the support and guidance you need to acquire the health and happiness you deserve. Many people find themselves in a far better place than they ever imagined possible.
Sometimes if you want to see a change for the better, you have to take things into your owns hands Clint Eastwood
