Ways You Can Survive Divorce Emotionally and Thrive After
Who will just survive, and who will thrive after a divorce? Divorce is hard, really hard, and when you are going through it. It might feel that you will never come out on the other end. You might even wonder if you will ever be happy again.
How Can I Survive After My Divorce?
You can survive your divorce if you have the right mindset. I have worked with hundreds of clients over the years. One thing that I can tell you with almost complete accuracy is who will just survive a divorce and who will thrive. How do I know this? Well, to put it simply, it has everything to do with your way of thinking.
Those who are stuck blame their spouse. The reason is that they tend to be
stuck still in their anger and resentment. This type of mindset prevents them from moving forward even after they are divorced. Often these are the clients who return to court time and time again.
The client who thrives, on the other hand, is the one who has a growth mindset. She is the one that looks inward to identify who and what ruined the marriage. Then she asks herself what she can learn from the experience? She looks at her divorce, not as the tragic ending to her story, but rather an opportunity for a new beginning and personal growth.
Accept the Divorce by Developing the Mindset to Thrive
Do we accept our circumstances gracefully and with pride? Your mindset is one of the conscious choices that we all make every day. For instance, we choose how to react whether we are stuck in traffic or stubbed a toe on the corner of a bed. Do we let those things dictate the rest of our day? Or do we release the thoughts and choose different ones?
How to Achieve a Thriving Mindset
Do we accept our circumstances gracefully and with gratitude? I know it’s hard to ask you to be grateful to your spouse. Maybe they did something to hurt you. Instead of being resentful, what if you’re thankful because you learned something about yourself? What if you’re grateful because your children were born from the marriage. What if you’re grateful because your divorce is setting you free to become who you want to be?
See, mindset is the single most crucial predictor of whether you will survive or thrive after the divorce. In the online course I created, we take a deep dive throughout the lessons on how to understand and achieve a thriving mindset. I provide you with specific and actionable things that you can do right now to change your mindset.
Are You Ready to Start Thriving?
A shift in your mindset requires a conscious decision on your part. No one can promise what the exact outcome of your divorce will be. Nevertheless, the first step to thriving during and after a divorce is shifting your mindset. Once you do that, I can guarantee that you will come out of it, not just surviving but also thriving after it.
