Itoften represents the loss of hopes and dreams, not only for you, but foryour children as well. Give yourself permission to take care of yourself;take a bath, go for a run or a hike, go out to lunch with friends, go to amovie… relax. This will benefit you, as well, as your children. Yourchildren take their cues on how to respond to the divorce from you; ifyou accept this change, they will too. If, however, you are sad andsorrowful, they will follow your lead. Your kids will feel a lot morerelaxed if they see that you are relaxed and in good spirits.

When your ex does something that isfrustrating, journal about it and explore your feelings.

Getting enough sleep helps usemotionally and physically and dreams are an important part ofworking through our feelings. As you lie in bed at night, think about thebeginnings in your life. Don’t dwell on the past, look to the future.Most people who are going through a divorce are actually leavingbehind a negative relationship, even if they don’t realize it at the time.They may have gotten comfortable in a routine that was dragging themdown. We often mourn the loss of our DREAM of a perfect marriage,rather than the relationship we actually had. You can still have yourdreams if you stay focused, take care of yourself, and prepare yourselffor the new life ahead of you.
