Divorce Recovery

Divorce recovery is not something that can be accomplished in a day or even in a week or two. It is a process of healing that takes time. Divorce healing begins and ends with God.

Healing is a choice. You have to make the decision that you will take the time you need to heal and do those things that will facilitate healing. There are some practical steps to healing that you can begin to implement in your life right now to start your journey of recovery.

Part of making the choice to heal is willingly taking responsibility for yourself and even confessing any mistakes you have made. If you are waiting around for someone else to come along and solve all your problems, you could be waiting for a very long time. You need to be an active part of the solutions.

As you move through the recovery process, it is important to recognize the stages of divorce recovery as well as the emotions that you will experience. Understanding that what you are feeling is normal and recognizing what the stages are as you move through them will bring you hope after divorce and comfort as you anticipate the onset of the next stage and see your divorce healing progressing.

Surviving divorce
may seem impossible at the beginning, but I can assure it is not. Yes, it is difficult. Yes, it hurts. Yes, it is hard to even begin to imagine what your life will be like in the future. The goal though, is to not only survive by going through the motions of daily life, but to come to a place where you have a renewed sense of hope after divorce and begin to look ahead to the future with expectation.
