Add in the volatile emotions that are frequently associated with divorce and you have a difficult situation indeed.
In this section, we will talk about practical ways that divorcing people can cope with and make the best of their stressful circumstances.
There are really two sides to the divorce process; the human emotional side and the formal legal side.
Different coping strategies and skills are appropriate to address each of these aspects of divorce.
Divorce can trigger all sorts of unsettling, uncomfortable and frightening feelings, thoughts and emotions, including grief, loneliness, depression, despair, guilt, frustration, anxiety, anger, and devastation, to name a few.
There is frequently sadness and grief at the thought of the end of a significant relationship.
There can be fear at the prospect of being single again, possibly for a long time (or even forever), and with having to cope with changed financial, living and social circumstances.
There can be anger at a partner's stubborn obstinacy and pettiness, abuse, or outright betrayal.
There can be guilt over perceived failures to have made the relationship work.
