In our years of serving the community as family law attorneys in Irvine, CA, we understand how difficult it is to go through such a big life change. The truth is although all divorce cases are different, they are never easy. Ending a marriage is an emotional decision and those heightened feelings can impact the way people deal with the practical matters that need to be resolved, such as dividing finances.
While money can be a stressful topic, for many, it’s not actually the hardest part about getting divorced. Some of our clients tell us that the more difficult part is wondering if they’ll be okay once no longer married. They question how to endure the loneliness of being single again.
We share with them that as hard as it is to imagine right now, they will find their way forward. It’s important to keep believing in yourself, because things will be okay, and things will get better.
Remind yourself that the painful emotions you are feeling now will not always be so sharp. Rebuilding after divorce is a process and it takes time to get used to being single as well as to develop a new life for oneself, but you need to trust that you will get there.
People often worry that if they leave the marriage they will end up alone with no chance of finding love again. However, staying with someone you no longer want to be with never ends well.
Ask yourself would you rather be alone and happy in life or married and miserable. The fear of being alone is a powerful one, but it does not justify staying in an unhappy marriage.
