Divorce can be an infuriating event, especially if you didn't see it coming or if your ex's infidelity was the reason for the divorce. In our previous blog post, we warned people who are going through a divorce not to air out their dirty laundry on social media. This advice rings true no matter what circumstances are present in the divorce. The last thing that you need is a post or tweet that you though was innocent coming back to bite you during the divorce.
We understand that you might need an outlet to vent your frustrations. If at all possible, try to find an outlet that is attached to your ex in any manner. Try to find one that isn't online for the world to see. Keeping a journal or writing out your feeling and then destroying the paper are some options you can use.
As you go through the divorce, you can make sure that you understand what is going on. At each step in the divorce process, you will likely have options for how you handle things. Knowing these options and choosing the options that you feel best fit the situation might help you to cope with the anger you feel.
We can help you learn about what choices you have. As you think about each choice you have, think about how the options can benefit you or harm you for many years to come. It is easy to think about the short-term but the long-term is just as important. We want you to help get your new life started in the best way possible.
