If you have recently had to accept that your marriage is over, this has likely been a very difficult time for you. The sense of certainty and predictability in our lives is often a very important pillar: We tend to have a vision of how the next decades of our life will look. But when that pillar comes crashing down, it can feel like our whole world is falling apart.
If you are currently going through these emotions, it is important to remember that this emotion, just like every other, is temporary. If you are feeling depressed or anxious, you should seek medical attention as a priority, since these conditions are highly treatable. You should also take the time to reflect on your life and think about how it can still be a beautiful one even if you have to reimagine it.
Uncertainty brings light to new possibilities
When nothing is certain, everything is possible. Rather than worrying about the uncertainty in your life, try to reframe the situation to ask yourself what you would like your life to look like. You are currently at a unique turning point in your life where you have many possible directions to take.
Heartbreak can open a door to a deeper meaning
Many people believe that the richest life is not the one that has the most happiness, but instead, the one where most emotions are felt, both positive and negative. To experience the highs and lows of life is to truly live, and while it can be difficult to feel gratitude to heartache in the moment, it may open a door to deeper meaning in life.
It’s time to take some risks
Now is the time to rediscover who you are as an individual, not a spouse. Try pushing yourself out of your comfort zone by meeting new people or going on a vacation to a new destination.
If you are at the beginning of a divorce process, make sure that you take action to put a divorce strategy in place.
