The emotion I’ll be writing about today is fear, women and men can get terrified during their divorce and fear can be experienced in many ways throughout the divorce process. It’s not an emotion you should feel ashamed of feeling, a few examples of things that people fear are below:
- The unknown
- Being on your own
- Finances – how will you afford the bills
- Being a single parent with no full time support
You may become scared when, in your own head, you start to doubt your decisions and think ‘what if’. When this happens take a step back and stop, try not to think negative and turn the ‘what if’ into a positive thought. If you’re concerned about becoming a single parent and how hard that will be, remember nothing is easy but in time it will become easier. You possibly may have more support around than you than you first thought.
Look to the future and positive thinking will help you see the light at the end of the tunnel from the fear you’re feeling.
