When given the news of divorce, many people panic and struggle with the separation that comes before the divorce. Here are some tips to help you through the separation process:
Separating is one of the most difficult times of the divorce process. This is when the normalcy of everyday life is flipped upside down and you feel first hand the reality of what divorced life is going to be like. Truthfully, it can be any or all of the following: chaotic, stressful, sad, and lonely. The important thing to remember during this process is to take time for yourself. While it may sound nice to just lock yourself in your room and hideout under the covers all day, you need to get out and do things for you. Getting out and re-establishing your independence can offer you the repair and healing you need to move on and find happiness.
If you have children, it is important that guidelines are established early on that offer both flexibility and structure for both parents to follow during this stressful time.

This does not mean that you need to get into the intricacies of what went wrong or the fight you two got in last week.
