We have entered one of the busiest seasons of the year. Halloween is a faint memory, and we are all gearing up for more celebrating, more family and more fun!…right? Well, not all of us. What do you do when you are dealing with the grief of divorce? How do you balance managing your child’s holiday schedule? How do you deal with questions about why your partner is not with you at the family dinner this year? January 1st feels so far off, how do you make it to the finish line? The first step is to know you absolutely can and will make it through.
Here are 5 tips for making this transition a little bit easier:
Be gentle with yourself:
Do something different!
Ask for help / develop a support network:
Be ok with not being ok:
Have fun! Have lunch with friends, catch a movie, have fun shopping, or take a quick getaway. Embrace each smile and the sound of laughter. This is a great time to discover yourself all over again.
