More recently, The National Survey of Family Growth, PolitiFact.com estimated in 2012 that the lifelong probability of a marriage ending in divorce is 40%–50%. However, when you select your mate and decided to marry them divorce is never on your mind. However, we all know that this is a possibility. And if there are children involved the separation can be even worse. Even though the other person is still alive at times this can feel like a death and you must go through the grieving process. During a divorce you may experience grief, guilt, anger, confusion, fear, shame, and anxiety.
The good thing about post-divorce counseling is that it can guide you through the aftermath of your divorce. More specifically, divorce counselors use a variety of techniques to improve your self-esteem and self-confidence and accept reality, so you can reclaim your life. They also help you cope with any residual feelings towards your ex – in a healthy and productive way. Thus, speaking with a divorce counselor can provide a release of these feelings, so they do not remain bottled up inside. The question is are you ready to find your new normal? Are you ready to re-discover your identity?
