How can you live a better life after divorce?

Even if you are happy that your divorce is in the past, it's only natural to wonder if you could have done things differently. Your goal now is to live a better life in the future. While this may sound like a tall task, it is something you can accomplish if you take the right approach.

Living a better life after divorce means something different to everyone in this situation; however, there are some tips you can follow:

-- Don't hide from your pain. Divorce is never easy and you should feel comfortable processing your pain for as long as it takes.

-- Remove yourself from your comfort zone. This is never easy to do, but it will give you a new outlook on life. This can be as simple as doing something you avoided during your marriage.

-- Stay busy. From work to hanging out with friends, you want to stay busy. When you sit around by yourself, it leads to lonely feelings. Soon enough, you could find yourself rehashing bad times from the past.

-- Finally, give yourself credit for your bravery. You have gone through a lot with your divorce, and you need to realize that you are now ready for a better life in the future.

It is never easy to move on with your life after divorce, but most people find the courage to do so. Once you make a few key changes, everything will begin to come together. As soon as you begin enjoying life again, you will look back and realize you have made many good decisions.

Commandments of Family Law

  1. The only truth your children need to know is that you both love them unconditionally, and that this isn't their fault.
  2. Take the high road — everyone wins when you do what's best for your kids.
  3. Negotiate but don't capitulate — if you are being pushed toward something detrimental for your children, stand your ground.
  4. You can only control yourself and how you respond. Don't engage.
  5. Do set up rules and responsibilities. Kids feel better when routine is continued.
  6. You are still their parent — don't be afraid to be one.
  7. Disneyland is in California, not in your home. Don't set up unreasonable expectations.
  8. It is not their job to take care of you. Repeat that to them. Often.
  9. Yelling is for sports — not court. Good lawyers strongly advocate without being disrespectful to opposing parties.
  10. Fair is a place you go to get cheese curds. Aside from that, nothing in life is fair.
