At Westfield Mediation, LLC, we explain to our divorce mediation clients that divorce is not the problem. It is the solution to the problem of a relationship breaking down. So, you can try to see it as a positive step forward towards reshaping your lives and minimizing conflict and stress.
That said, divorce is often an emotional process, and the fact that you are seeing family and friends may be an occasion to find support among people who care about you. Since almost everyone knows someone who has gone through divorce mediation or litigation, you are likely to find a sympathetic ear. And if you rather not talk about it, that’s fine too – your divorce does not have to define your interactions with others.
This Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas may be an opportunity for you to change up your old traditions to reflect the changes in your family or a chance to start new ones. It can be the time your friends and family help you find your new path.
