Guidelines for Moving Forward in Divorce
Divorce can be one of the most tumultuous times in your life. Make it easy on yourself by following these guidelines for moving forward.
Be Kind. Treat yourself with the same compassion and understanding you would show others.
Set Boundaries. Set new rules for how you will feel and behave. Know when to walk away and act the way you want others to act. Keep things easy by avoiding bringing up topics of contention. Let your advocates deal with those issues.
Get an Advocate. Get a lawyer for your legal needs and a coach to guide you through the life challenges of divorce. Confront the fact that your life is changing instead of hiding from it.
Set Your Tone. You are responsible for the tone of your divorce. Slow everything down to calm yourself down and stay within that zone. Your tone in voice and body language is your message. Make yours one of peace.
