No matter the reason, the break-up of a committed relationship can trigger some profound emotions such as sadness, stress and grief. Life after divorce can feel overwhelming and for many, the future uncertainty can sometimes seem worse than the unhappy relationship itself.
Divorce recovery is a grieving process with stages and steps that need to be acknowledged. It is important you allow yourself time to fully grieve the loss of the relationship, the companionship, the support, and any future plans you had together. This process is not meant to be accomplished alone - friends, family, support groups or a professional divorce counselor are important in the divorce recovery process.
