Your spouse wants a divorce, and you know that it is going to be hard for you to adjust to life after your marriage. It's just not something you were prepared for. You're not sure how long it will take you to get through it.
While everyone is different, some experts suggest that the best way to move forward is to put your time and energy into something else. This helps to distract you from the other changes and gives you a clear focus. It prevents you from simply sitting on the couch and dwelling on what happened.
One woman said that her own healing process involved starting a company after her marriage ended. She had more free time, so it was a natural fit. She wanted to reinvent herself. Suddenly, she was the only person she had to worry about when making decisions. That gave her the ability to put everything she had into the company.
In time, she was able to move forward. Her business found success. She started a new relationship. She changed her life. She attributes her success to that dedication to taking an active approach and working toward her goals, rather than passively sitting back and hoping that things would change all on their own.
Again, every situation is different, but this story shows why it is important to carefully consider what you can do to make the life you want. In all parts of this, whether you are getting divorced or starting your own company, make sure you understand what legal steps to take.
