Going through a Divorce is one of the hardest things we will ever experience in life. Especially if the relationship lasted for years.
However, just because you are now single doesn’t mean you have to go through this all on your own. There are some people who will be able to help and can offer you a shoulder to cry on. Not sure who to turn to? Here are five people to depend on.
Your mom will also have your back, no matter what you are currently dealing with. She has always been there for you since you were a little girl, and that won’t change.
Plus, she can also bring her wise life advice to the table and let you know how she dealt with her breakups in her younger years. But most importantly, she is there to listen and to let you know that everything will eventually be alright.
The first person you should think to call is your mom. She’ll put the kettle on and get you to come around for a good chat.
You’re Best Friend
Your bestie is almost as important as your mom! After all, you will have known each other longer than any of your other friends and will be just like sisters.
She will be able to give you her advice and can draw on her experiences of breakups. But the best thing about a best friend is that they will always want to cheer you up. So don’t expect to be down in the dumps around your best friend.
She will be desperate to put a smile back on your face however she can. Probably with a night on the town to forget your worries!
If your marriage has come to an end, you will need to contact your lawyer. If you don’t already have one, take a look through to the phonebook to find a family lawyer, such as Gillard Lawyers.
While your mom and friends will be able to pick up all the emotional fallout from the end of a relationship, your lawyer can legally help you. A good lawyer will have a divorce settled in no time at all and with minimum financial payouts expected from you.
If you feel like the breakup is taking a toll on your mental health, book an appointment with your family doctor. Explain to him or her your situation and all your symptoms. They might feel it is necessary for you to go on antidepressants for a certain length of time. Usually, this will be until you are totally over the divorce and back on your feet.
Kids hate to see their mom going through a tough time. They might also be feeling highly emotional if you’ve just split from their dad. But they will certainly rally around to help you feel happier and supported. No matter how young they are, you can always rely on a cuddle with your kids to cheer you up.
There’s a light at the end of the tunnel, no matter how bad you feel right now.
