No one walks down the aisle expecting that their marriage will fail. Yet, so many marriages end in divorce today. Maybe your relationship started off amazing and now you’re left wondering how things got so bad. Maybe things were tough right from the start. Regardless of the reasons why your marriage struggled, it’s over now and you’re left with more questions than you have answers for.
- How did the marriage get so bad?
- Why didn’t we try harder to make it work?
- Was divorce really the only option?
- What will my family think?
- Will I ever find love again?
When trying to recover from divorce, it’s important to understand a few facts that can help you through this process. First, no two divorces are the same. How we manage conflict in our relationships varies from person-to-person. Likewise, how we handle breakups varies among individuals. For some, the end of a marriage may be a relief. For most people, however, the divorce (even if it was inevitable) is overwhelming.
Secondly, you’re not a failure. Your marriage ended, but that doesn’t make you a failure. If you let your divorce consume you, you’ll never be able to heal and move past it; so, change your perspective. You will continue to feel like a failure if that’s how you view yourself. Besides, no one should ever have to live on a “pass-fail” basis.
Finally, there’s no formula for divorce recovery. Maybe you’ve heard someone say, “Give yourself a year and you’ll be back out there.” Don’t believe it! It’s simply not possible to know precisely how long your divorce recovery will take. You can choose to walk this road alone, or you can find a caring person to walk beside you to help make sense of the past and plan for the future.
