Even if you were the one who pushed for the divorce, recovering from it is still going to be a process. You will have to deal with things that might make you uncomfortable. Working through these can help you start your new life out on the right foot.
One of the most important things for you to do is to let go of the thought that you might be able to get back with your ex. This might creep up as you realize the finality of the divorce, but there isn’t much of a chance that the things that led to the divorce will be corrected in a way that the marriage would suddenly be a success.
As you work through the divorce process, try not to make any life-altering decisions. You may be tempted to plan a big move or even change jobs. With very few exceptions, these are all actions that should be avoided until you’ve settled down some after the split.
The legal process is another one that’s often challenging. When you’re working through this aspect of the split, you’ll be confronted with decisions about various things. Try not let your emotions rule in these cases. Instead, try to remain logical so that you can think about how each option will impact you now and into the future.
It might be rather difficult, but try to take your time adjusting to the new life. The freedom you have now can be invigorating. Embrace it, and learn how to be your own source of happiness. As time progresses, it will probably all get easier.
